By reaching the final in Kolkata without beating a player inside the top 125 WTA?

And the person she is playing in the final is ranked #81...

That has got to be a record. There are people who have won challengers that went through tougher fields than Myskina did at this Tier III event.

Hey, I am proud to be a fan of player who has the weirdest records! :lol:

- first ever reigning RO champ to go out in the very first round
- played the longest third-set tiebreak at a WTA tourney (along with Vera)
- first ever player naked on a horse

and now adding: First ever player who didnīt have to meet a Top 100 player en route to the finals of a Tier III event.

Thatīs bitching! ...no, I am sure thereīs got to be someone else who did it before. Besides, I have the feeling that the draw was a bit manipulated somehow...I mean come on! No Mirza, no Sprem in her half? When I first saw the draw, I had the feeling they wanted to have a Mirza-Nastya final really badly!

Nastya vs Lena would have been a good match-up: (1)Myskina (RUS/12) vs (2)Likhovtseva (RUS/16) for a tier III final !!! Too bad it did not happen...could have been a good match!

MGM faced such a weak draw in winning her only WTA title (Tashkent '02) as the top seed that it moved her up in the rankings all the way from #50 to #49. :o

And an odd thing was that the same weak, Tashkent native Iroda (who would have easily been the top seed) was defending her '01 Vienna title... and lost in the final! :lol:
