I would say that I assumed Schnyder would win some Tier II or III at some point along the line. When the year started I was also pretty sure that Schiavone would get her first title this year, but she did not. Who else did you assume would win a title in 2006 but did not?
Re: Who are you surprised did not win a title in '06?
Venus and Serena, they have the talent to be grand slam champions let alone to win any title on any given year.
