Cool Sydney: The Biggest Upset So Far?

I really can't believe how many top players has got beaten, but it only makes the tournament more exiting, though!

Biggest upset so far??

Pratt def. safina.
Safina has just won in her previous tournament and I thought she would do well here too. But no Maybe she was to tired? Who knows, only herself. But one thing is sure: Pratt didn't care and knocked her out

I'm sure Safina will do well at AO
- I HOPE SO

If Pratt beats Kim, that's a huge upset.
Dinara was exhausted after GC. Getting the rest of this week off should be good for her.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Sydney: The Biggest Upset So Far?

Can everyone stop blaming Safina for exhaustion!!

She had 2 days to recover! She had no injuries, got through the match fine, fighting to the end saving 2 match points and lots of break points in the 3rd set.

Re: Sydney: The Biggest Upset So Far?

Oh soo many upsets already. Safina probably the biggest. Kuznetsova and Petrova both retired with injuries. Dementieva lost from 5 mps .
Kind of strange tournament so far.

Re: Sydney: The Biggest Upset So Far?

Yeah and forgot about Schnyder loss. If course not the biggest upset , but she was playing some good tennis Hong Kong - won Kuznetsova, played good match against Clijsters. And she usually plays well at the beginning of the season.
