Justine crushing Serena 3 times in the QFs of RG, Wimby and USO :notworthy:

The match between Venus and Justine in the USO SF... majestic.

Bartoli's "out of the blue" performance against Justine in the Wimby SF.

Rainer kicking the water bottle and Patty "slapping" Dani's hand in the Luxemborg SF :TAPE:

Ana defeating Sveta in the... Rome (or was it Berlin) final.

Aga making mockery of Sharapova's poweress and ranking in the USO 3rd round.

Serena's "lucky shots" interview :lol:

Elena Dementieva winning the Moscow Open by (comprehensively) defeating Serena in the final.

I still have others in mind... but these are the one which stood out.

In chronological order :

The "impossible" slam win.
Lightning striking in the same desert twice.
The Serbs will always have Paris...
The seeming no-contest, the comeback, the second wind, the injury, the 10 minutes, the rain, the trousers, the tie-break, the dropshot, the aftermath - sport as drama.
When Bond's around nobody does it better...

1. Venus and Maria being moved from Court 3 to Centre Court, and the subsequent thrashing of Maria by Venus. After that, pretty much everyone knew who was to win the tourny.

2. Serena losing to Justine three majors in a row, and looking fairly plain in the process. I mean, her dress was even sub-par for her flashy likes.

3. The downfall of Maria...(I hope she comes back strong next year!)

Oh I think my most memorable moment would be the tennis lesson Serena gave Sharapova in the finals of the Australian Open. She came on strong against predictions and lifted the trophy almost as soon as the match started.
