Emelie Loit when she almost took out Serena in the Australian Open 2003.. yea yeah, i know she's an established player and all, but that's the only time I've really only paid attention to her

I'm gunna fudge a little on the rules. I remember Mary Joe Fernandez for one tournament. I realize she became sort of famous. I really only associate her with the 1993 French Open when Monica had just been stabbed. Mary Joe came back from something like 6-0, 5-0 to win a match against Sabatini in the QF. She then took Sanchez-Vicario down in three sets in the semis. In the final she almost took Steffi down, but lost in three. It was delightful.

I realize that...that's why I said I fudged a little. I really only remember her for that tournament. I guess if I had to pick one match..the fact that she went 10-8 in the third set against Sabatini (after coming back from 6-0, 5-0 down) of the QF would make me pick that match. Actually, upon reflection...I think she may have beaten Sanchez-Vicario in 2 sets.

Who was the girl that bagelled Davenport on clay in 2004? It was in the final of a tournament just before the French Open, which she went on to win. She seems to have faded out of this world...

Ah, Claudine Schaul or something like that?

I think she's more famous for taking out Capriati (two-time defending champion) in first round of Australian Open 2003 ;)

Yeah but I didn't follow tennis closely then so I didn't hear about it.. I only remember her from beating Hingis. I remember there were lots of threads bashing Martina after that, they must seem funny after her comeback now :)

Hy def Cap in '92, it was Leila Meskhi in '93 - and Cap was really crying in the press conference, then went downhill.

Loved Patricia Hy - her and her husband were so cute.

Indeed. ;)

Capriati had also just won the Mahwah exhibition beating MJF I think, 0 & 3 in the final, just before the Meskhi match.

Aniko Kapros is definitely up there for me. It still remains a mystery how she managed to beat Henin-Hardenne with her laughable "powderpuff" serve :scratch:
