Probably Erakovic, given the fact that she had just made the semis in Auckland and it was in a Slam.

I'd say the win yesterday in the quarters against Lucic because it was like the Jelena from 6 years ago, fighting for a win even when she didn't play that well.

Erakovic was also semis in Memphis, and 3rd Round in Miami

Erakovic is by far her most surprising victory!!!

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Which 2008 Dokic victory has impressed you the most?

^ LOL I wouldnt say " surprising " victory, it was expected victory

I voted Erakovic as well, becuase she was expecting a lot from AO and Jelena stopped her easily.

I'm watching you.

I'd say Meusburger, she beat her easily after struggling in match before and in Pre-Qualies for AO.

I think it was a great win after no wins like that for a long time.

I said Dokic def. Brito because i wasnt sure if she could win
but other great wins were her wins over Linetskaya since that was her first WTA tour event win in years.
Also her win over Lucic was great since it showed her fight
Muller-first main draw win in years, also after tanking 2nd set, she fought hard to win third
