Well, there are a lot of matches I didn't get to see (including the semifinals and final of the U.S. Open, because of hurricane problems), and several I don't remember that easily. But of what I do recall:

Best Match: Mauresmo def. Pierce, Tour Championships

Worst Match: AO final

Best Player: Mary Pierce

Worst Player: I'd probably go with Sesil here, but I still think the potential is there.

Best Performance: Peng def. Clijsters, San Diego

Worst Perfornace: I would have said Davenport in the AO final, but I now believe she was a victim of heat/overplay exhaustion. So I'd say Davenport in her U.S. Open quarterfinal with Dementieva; there was no excuse for that.

Best Tournament: Wimbledon

Worst Tournament: No vote here

Best Choke: Can't get into that concept

Worst Choke: Probably Henin-Hardenne def. Kuznetsova, from everything I heard, and from following the score on the Web, but I didn't see it. Of the matches I saw, the worst choke was Ivanovic def. Mauresmo, FO.

For some reason, I forgot about the FO final; that was godawful. I put it in a tie with the AO final. And I guess I have to put Kim's overall performance over Mary's, now that I remember that disaster.

Personally:

Best film I made this year I have to say, my performance as Terri Shiavo's mother in, "Terri: A Cry for Help" on Hallmark channel was really my best this year. I really laid it on and nailed the part, despite the crappy script and direction (what do you want from the Hallmark channel).

Worst film I made this year That thing where I was Bonny Lee Bakely's mother for LifeTime TV stunk. It was on-location shooting in the Ozarks in a trailor park. They were re-writing the lousy script up to 5 minutes before the shoot. The whole project was terrible. I'm sure they'll mangle it worse. Just awful. The dough was nice, though.

Best endorsement I did a Revlon ad with Susan Sarandon and Julianne Moore entitled, "Legends." I still don't understand them making that plural, but anyway, I looked fabulous and was thrilled with the final product.

Worst endorsement I did an ad for nicorette gum. The set was really cheap, it looked awful, and the darn gum pulled out one of my veneers and I had to have it re-done. Luckily, it's only being shown in Mexico and it's dubbed.
