Lots! Amelie winning Wimbledon by beating her arch-nemesis Justine

Maria winning the US Open by beating her arch-nemesis Justine

Justine finishing the year as no.1 & winning the YEC by gaining revenge on her two rivals maria & amelie & winning Roland Garros. She proved several nay-sayers wrong as well 2.

The return game of Justine in 2006 that has no equal, and by far in my opinion.

Hingis return and LenaD winning Tokyo.

Ameilie getting her first two slams and probably following sam's progress to get into the top 30. I was hoping she would get there by the end of the year and she did.

Amelie winning her Grand Slam titles :D

I will start with the Semis of AO
Maria lost against Justine and Kim against Amelie (like at the wta champs)
I missed only Maria's game at Roland Garros against Safina and she lost the match from 5-1 in 3rd set. Justine won it without a problem.
at the Wilmbledon Amelie punished Maria's Net Game and even she won 5 games on the row in the second set she won the title after she lost the 1 set against Henin.
At the Us Open Maria was " The Princess in Black Dress" and win the tournament in her Favourite city.
The nr 1 race was decided in the Semis Between Maria and Justine where Maria had a bad day and she lost everything she fought in the last 3 weeks.

Hingis return showed that their is no substitue for Class in tennis.. she showed that even today shes a unique talent and one to treated carefully.. as sharapova, dementieva, safina, venus, davenport, petrova, kuznetsova, and so many others can all attest to..

i think amelie winning the wimby was good

Nov 13th, 2006, 11:51 AM
The Hingis return, lenaD coming from 6-2 5-2 against JHH to win, Vee overcoming cramps and just fighting her skin out to beat Hingis in Warsaw in a thriller also lenaD winning her 1st tier 1 in stunning fashion

I vote for other... because what I most remember of this year is the sad accident of Tati during her Miami SF against Sharapova...

It was the first time I start crying watching TV... And everytime I watch it, tears are always coming...

The end of this match was so cruel... After this absolutely amazing second set (which is for me probably "the set of the year"), ended the match with an injury was so unfair after fighting like that! :bigcry:

Before this event, I was just following Tati's match... and now I'm really a big fan of her!!! :worship:

Justine's great year will be the most memorable in years to come I feel...

2006 was ALL about Henin defaulting on Mauresmo's first grand slam.
