Re: Biggest Shock Of The Decade???!!!

Maria's Wimbledon was shocking, but at least there were signs. She had reached the French quarters and was coming off a win at Birmingham. Marion was coming off like a R2 performance somewhere. This is actually legitimately not believable.

Re: Biggest Shock Of The Decade???!!!

This might be the biggest shock in the open era. The best player in the world in good form coming off a victory over the second best player in the world and a grand slam title in Paris/grass court title in Eastbourne losing to someone considered over ranked who plays almost exclusively in tier 3 tournaments who has like 10 first round losses this year in the SEMI FINALS. I mean, first round upsets aren't as shocking as this because it's easier to close out a ticket to the second round than a ticket to the finals. Honestly...this is shocking and unbelievable. I can't think of anything more shocking.

Well Marion did make the semis in Eastbourne, but she was crushed 6-1 6-3 by Justine.

I, like nearly everybody else, expected another comfortable win for Justine.

But nope.

Re: Biggest Shock Of The Decade???!!!

Sharapova d. Serena was HUGE, but this is pretty big too

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.
