Upset match of the day?

My eyes went like today a few times? What was the biggest surprise today?

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

For me the biggest surprise was when Shaughnessy ousted Venus and according to the stats of this poll, most people seem to agree with me...

I think the big upset was that NONE of the matches were even close! We had 1 tiebreak, 1 6-4, and the rest of the sets were completely pathetic based on scoreline alone.

LOL I guess I"m one of the few who voted for the Rubin/Mauresmo match! IMO it was much more of a shock (mainly because I already expected that Meghann had a good chance to win) and also because Amelie and Chanda are very good players as equal and Chanda won the match like Amelie never played tennis before!

For me not, because Meg already defeat Vee, so... and the first set was pretty close!!

But, seeing Chanda giving a 6-0 to Amelie, was quite surprising!!
