Jan 22nd, 2011, 05:29 PM
So week one has wrapped up and we are down to the final 16. I think this open,even without Serena, has provided some pretty memorable moments already. The Venus-Sandra match;Justine-Sveta second set;The Ana-Makarova finale;Kim blanking Dinara;The "dead zone";Tons of matches going deep into the 3rd set.....what has been the biggest moment so far for you?

Probably Sveta beating Justine. She was in last year's final, and would be the top half favorite if still in it.

Seeing Venus fight with that injury & still win the match against Sandra was amazing to me. Also seeing Sveta win against Henin was nice because that h2h is really sad.

Sharapova vs. Goerges match

The biggest moment for me was Justine losing. Even after Sveta had choked away serving for the match twice, and multiple match points.

Other memorable moments:

- Venus injuring herself against Zahlavova, but going on to win that match
- Dinara not winning a game against Kim
- Kim snatching Todd Woodbridge's wig
- Dead spots on Hisense Arena
- Venus retiring after only 1 full game against Petkovic
- Caro getting her revenge against Dominika

Kerrilyn Cramer throwing the ball on the court before Maria-Goerges and just going like :shrug: when it didn't bounce back was hilarity.

Actually, pretty great quality this first week.

My fave matches so far:

Ana vs Makarova
Maria vs Julia
Sania vs JuJu
Iveta vs Nastya

Biggest moment:-


The point at 8:26 to save the SP.

Svetlana playing clutch against one of the biggest match players on tour. Could be a start of her revival, who knows.

Biggest match :-

Maria defeating Julia in 3 sets. Could be her revival too.

Other than Maria's match,

I loved watching Bojo go up a set against Vera (to lose :o)
and watching Mirza almost beat Justine in the first round. That would have epic if she won :tears:

Racket loss! HAHAHAH

Radwanska used Defective Racket.
It's not very effective...
Radwanska became confused.
She hurt herself in her confusion!
