What have been the biggest coincindences of 2006? For example, the same players drawing each other week after week etc.

In my opinion, the strangest were:
-Patty Schnyder drawing Antonella Serra Zanetti in Wimbledon first round, again!
-Dokic and Stevenson meeting in first round of Wimbledon qualifying:eek: , a rematch of 1999 quarter finals.

what are your thoughts?

:scratch: That was the first "unknown" Bulgarian. Sesil was pretty damn well known when Venus lost to her! :rolleyes:

I wouldnt go as far as to say that. :shrug: Completely unknown? No. For the most part unknown... yes.

And definitely the Chanda Rubin vs. Patty Schnyder drawing eachother like 344653169 weeks in a row was the first thing that came to mind.

Yeah Mirza losing too many 3 setters :lol: Almost every match she lost was a close one( not all of em of course!! )
Justine lost all Big ones in which she played a tournie right before (with a title that too) While the slams she went fresh in (RG and the pseudo slam "YEC" ) She won them!! She looked worn kinda worn out in both USO and Wimby finals!!I dont think its too good for her to play a tournie right before a slam...!!

Sesil was not unknown when she beat Venus - no way! People had heard of her at least coz of comments that she's made about handing Sharapova's ass to her in a previous match. ;)
