Which Victory of a non-fave was the most pleasant for you?

For me it's:

1. Mauresmo def. Elena for winning Paris - In general I prefer Lena but Amélie really deserved it.
2. Hantuchova def. Kuznetsova for winning IW - Well ok, she's a fave but she still deserves it .
3. Dokic AO QF run - That was really great

Ka. PLISKOVA - E. SVITOLINA - E. VESNINA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - T. BACSINSZKY
N. VAIDISOVA - D. HANTUCHOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY - M. PIERCE

Re: Which Victory of a non-fave was the most pleasant for you?

Good question and I agree with Mauresmo's victory over Dementieva. The Paris Indoors was my first tournament as a spectator and at the time, I probably preferred Dementieva but seeing how popular Amelie was and seeing her emotions, I was more than happy when she won Especially because it was pretty much her final hurrah as well.

Re: Which Victory of a non-fave was the most pleasant for you?

at the mention of events that should never be mentioned.

I was glad when Momo won her majors even though I'm not a big fan. Probably the happiest I've been for a nonfave since Novotna won hers.
