Roger Federer at Australian Open 2007.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

It's doubles, but:
1998 Philadelphia
Elena Likhovtseva & Ai Sugiyama:
1R: def. Reeves/Rippner 3-6 6-1 6-3
QF: def. Cacic/Jeyaseelan 7-5 4-6 6-2
SF: def. Hingis/Novotna 4-6 6-4 7-5
F: def. Seles/Zvereva 7-5 4-6 6-2

They were on a 12-win streak as a team after this.

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.
