Graf v. Zvereva, 6-0 6-0 in like 30 minutes. I mean, people thought Graf was going to win, but not like that.

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

Kim vs Mary 2005 US Open Final (Kim won 6-3 6-1). Kim was the favourite but Mary was in great form and it was expected to be very close.

Re: Matches People Thought Would Be Close But Weren't

Thanks for reminding me I can't really remember what happened. Did Justine play well in that match or did Kim play bad?

Re: Matches People Thought Would Be Close But Weren't

1999 San Diego final: Hingis def. Villiams 6-4, 6-0, after Richard claimed all Venus had to do to win was show up.

1999 AO QF: Seles def Graf 7-5, 6-1. Monica won 8 straight games before Steffi held to avoid the bagel.

1999 Rome QF: Hingis def Silliams 6-2, 6-2.

2001 US Open SF: Silliams def Hingis 6-3, 6-2.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

It was the SF. In the QF, we had to get rid of the younger one, who didn't quite bend over and get spanked like Villiams.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.
