The score you did not expect ?

What was the final score you would've never ever expected to see ??
I would mention a few:

1. Petrova def. Clijsters, 6:0,6:1 , AO 2010. 3rd round

2. Jankovic def. Dementieva, 0:6,6:1,6:0 , Moscow 2008. Semis

3. Wozniacki def. Bartoli, 6:1 6:1 , Doha 2011. Semis (after Marion was rumoured to have been playing her career tennis)

4. Ivanovic def. Sharapova, 6:1,6:2 , FO 2007. Semis

5. Jankovic def. V. Williams, 6:0,6:1 , Rome 2010. Quarters

(Remember, it's all about the weird scorelines )

Re: The score you did not expect ?

Off the top of my head (and it is very random), Amanda Coetzer's 99 Tokyo Quarter and Semi results:
QF Amanda Coetzer(7) - Lindsay Davenport(1) 2-6 6-4 6-3
SF Amanda Coetzer(7) - Monica Seles(4) 6-4 6-2

And Iva beating Hingis at RG was VERY unexpected, I don't think many people predicted that.

Over the years, many years, hundreds. No, probably, thousands.

Guys, just to make it more clear, it's not about the player you've expected to see winning/losing, it's all about the scoreline.

Re: The score you did not expect ?

Schiavone def. Stosur 64,76 RG final definitely wins for me at least in 2010

So many people got furious with Stosur. I mean she couldnt have defeated anyone bigger/better before only to lose to Schiavone in the final

Edit: I even remember forcing my mum by telephone to go and bet on the final for Stosur to win. I was so sure she was going to win that one I said I could bet my life on it Im happy words dont mean anything otherwise I wouldnt be here by now My mother didnt listen to me fortunately, she believed in Schiavone for some strange reason..

Wozniacki def. Bartoli 1 and 1

Unknown Dokic beating 2 and 0 Martina Hingis at Wimbledon was the all time shocker for me

Pironkova bt Venus 6-2 6-3 at Wimbledon, 2010. Probably the most shameful scoreline of Venus's career, given the context.

Re: The score you did not expect ?

The match I'm not thinking of never happened, and as a result there's no possible way I had such a huge crisis over it that I actually considered kicking my all-time favorite player to the curb.

But if she ever had played that badly I might have done that. I would have been that shocked, I think.

Re: The score you did not expect ?

Clijsters def. V.Williams 6-0 0-6 6-4, US Open 2009
Didn't expect that scoreline from the first two sets.

S.Williams def. V.Dushevina 6-7(2) 7-6(5) 7-6(5), Madrid 2010
Wasn't expecting it to be that close.

Probably lots more, some have already been mentioned.
