Re: Wimbledon 2008 Awards

Best Personal Performance: Jie Zheng

Best Match: 2nd Round: Dechy vs. Ivanovic

Biggest Upset: 2nd Round: Kudryatseva def. Sharapova

Funniest Moment: Venus's post-match interview after the final or maybe Serena's last answer in her press conference. I really can't think of many. Schiavone mocking Paszek, maybe? If we're allowed to choose moments from the junior tourney, it would definitely be Laura Robson's interview, followed closely by Tabakova's antics.

Best Performance by a 1R loser (if you mean in that match): Katarina Srebotnik (16-14 3rd set)

Best Performance by a 2R loser: Nathalie Dechy

Best Performance by a 3R loser: Dinara Safina

Best Performance by a 4R loser: Not many. If I had to pick one, Kuznetsova.

Biggest Breakthrough: Jie Zheng

Best Comeback(career-wise): Again, Jie Zheng after her injury last year.

Best Comeback(match-wise): Ana Ivanovic (vs. Dechy)

Best moment: Zheng's reaction after every win.
