A0 2011: Week 1 biggest moment/match?

So week one has wrapped up and we are down to the final 16. I think this open,even without Serena, has provided some pretty memorable moments already. The Venus-Sandra match;Justine-Sveta second set;The Ana-Makarova finale;Kim blanking Dinara;The "dead zone";Tons of matches going deep into the 3rd set.....what has been the biggest moment so far for you?

Probably Sveta beating Justine. She was in last year's final, and would be the top half favorite if still in it.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Seeing Venus fight with that injury & still win the match against Sandra was amazing to me. Also seeing Sveta win against Henin was nice because that h2h is really sad.

Sharapova vs. Goerges match

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: A0 2011: Week 1 biggest moment/match?

The biggest moment for me was Justine losing. Even after Sveta had choked away serving for the match twice, and multiple match points.

Other memorable moments:

- Venus injuring herself against Zahlavova, but going on to win that match
- Dinara not winning a game against Kim
- Kim snatching Todd Woodbridge's wig
- Dead spots on Hisense Arena
- Venus retiring after only 1 full game against Petkovic
- Caro getting her revenge against Dominika

Kerrilyn Cramer throwing the ball on the court before Maria-Goerges and just going like when it didn't bounce back was hilarity.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Too bad it was about who was playing the least shitty, instead of well. Still can´t believe justine lost that tiebreak, ridiculous.

All-Time-Great

Biggest moment:-



The point at 8:26 to save the SP.

Svetlana playing clutch against one of the biggest match players on tour. Could be a start of her revival, who knows.

Biggest match :-

Maria defeating Julia in 3 sets. Could be her revival too.

Other than Maria's match,

I loved watching Bojo go up a set against Vera (to lose )
and watching Mirza almost beat Justine in the first round. That would have epic if she won

Re: A0 2011: Week 1 biggest moment/match?

There were some good matches.

The biggest story obviously is Henin out though

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
