That ain't the worst. You forgot the Moscow Final... not forgetting to mention the "Out For Nine" match against Patty too...

Be optimistica bout Serena, had it not been for her injuries she would have had a good second half as well. Loosing to Justine when not 100 % is fine, and at RG Justine came out on her A game and Serena was at about B-.

for Serena
BEST: AO final (could have won all the majors if she had played like she did in that match)
WORST: RG QF. Still, as far as I know Serena was healthy here, she should have done better.

JUSTINE
BEST: Wimby QF though Serena was injured she was still very tough, Justine held it together.
WORST: Wimby SF

VENUS
BEST: Wimbledon 4r. Looked very superior to Sharapova, this match gave her the confidence to win the title.
WORST: Health woes 2nd week of USO. It's clear Venus wasn't feeling well at all in the SF and she still made it very close to Justine.

MARIA
BEST: Getting to the finals of AO after almost being out in the 1r
WORST: Won 5 games against SErena in 2 matches....USO.

Re: Best and Worst achievements of 2007 by the year end Top 10

I would say Serena had a good year, because although she didn't have anything huge past Miami, its not like she had bad losses. If you don't include retirements, she lost to Schnyder on clay 7-6 in the third, Justine x 3, Kuznetsova, and Dementieva. Thats pretty consistent with her post 2003 and pre 2002 losses.

As for Venus, her losses to Rezai, Razzano, and Penetta are ludicrous, but who cares she has WImbledon.

Choking is wasting a big lead and collapsing when about to close out the match. Ana doesn't choke, sometimes she's never into the match.

Ana Ivanović.

Not only. Sometimes choke is when you just don't play free and that's what happens to her when she plays against Venus..She can't force her game on Venus like she does in other matches.
