One of the weirdest days ever in Grand Slam play?

Anyone agree? The strange scores and unexpected wins? I can't get over it.

Dushevina just gave away the set to Wozniacki. That was weird.

No. I thought it's quite unusual that only several seeds have gone out.
The big names are still there except Momo.

Wozniacki is pretty useless, when her opponent doesn´t commit stupid errors. Girl has no winning shot.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

But yeah .... two days gone, enjoying it so far.

Vera trying to con that razor-sharp umpire ... not a good idea.
I think it was Friday when Sharapova lost to Radwanska and another high seeds also lost. (Hingis was one of them).

Re: One of the weirdest days ever in Grand Slam play?

Please, it's women's tennis at it's current state. It's been like 6 months of weird scores and losing seeds/people who should really win the match they're playing.

Duh...it's a slam

And despite what the computer says, some of the seeds don't deserve seeding on their current form
