Re: SYDNEY: Best quality match? And biggest upset?
it's been a great year so far!
in gold coast we had the safina and peer three set battle in semis of gold coast followed by the 3 set final safina vs hingis. in addition to the first week, there was a three set fight between jankovic and zvonareva in the auckland final.
Week 2: in sydney, safina and hingis were sent packing early by pratt and jankovic respectively. then jankovic wowed everyone with her wins over top seed mauresmo before clijsters finished off the gritty serbian in a three set battle in the final. na li also reminded us why she is considered so dangerous on her way to the semis. in hobart, we saw the return of serena and a couple of dramatic three set matches she encountered. a new russian in vasilisa bardina has been noted, when she reached the final and chakvatadze continued the form which led her to strong fall season at the end of the 2006 by winning another title.
the aus open is going to be very exciting and i feel like women's tennis is improving again! i just hope it can continue throughout the year without too many injuries and weak draws
