Re: Is Marion only the second two-hands-on-both-sides player to reach a Grand Slam fi
Haha nevermind, I feel like an idiot. If I had only searched around WTA World, I would have found in the Bodo thread in his opening paragraph.
I've been wracking my brain, trying to come up with a bigger upset than yesterday's barnburner, in which Marion Bartoli, a plump, cheerful, star-struck (if not by her WTA sisters) French lass took out the top seed at Wimbledon, Justine Henin. The closest I can come, ironically enough, featured the only other woman who reached even a Grand Slam quarerfinal using a two-fisted grip on both sides: Monica Seles. That match was a second-rounder, at Wimbledon in 1996; Seles was shocked by journeywoman Katarina Studenikova.
