Strictly for the women...

- Dementieva beating her first top 20 player at a slam since the USO '05.
- Venus making her third consecutive slam quarterfinal, something she hadn't done in four or five years.
- Hantuchova reaching her first slam semifinal, playing wonderful tennis. :worship:
- Wozniacki making the fourth round.
- Rezai's win over Golovin, making yet another slam third round.
- Henin losing. :drool:

That should be about it.

Feb 4th, 2008, 02:00 AM
Venus QFing. :o
cool week, back on track hopefully.
keep it up.
Ana reaching another slam F.:cool:


Feb 4th, 2008, 02:06 AM
Casey :D

And of course Maria winning!

Feb 4th, 2008, 02:09 AM
From Aus08, obviously Maria winning the big one. She'd come so close in the past and it was awesome to see her do it this year.

Other favorite moments from 2008:
- Tsonga laying the smackdown on Nadal - his form that night was amazing. Hopefully he is the real deal cause I like him.
- Jankovic upsets Williams the younger - I'd picked Williams to win but Jelena didn't agree. :lol:
- Little Masha in the fourth round! For a moment I hoped for a Maria/Maria final. Alas it was not to be.
- Hewitt's run to the fourth round was also cool. I've always admired his intensity and it would've been nice to see him in the semis one more time.
- Henin's bagel. no offense to the world #1, but Maria owned that night.

Feb 4th, 2008, 03:24 AM

Ana waiting for Hantuchova to self distruct.

Feb 6th, 2008, 12:09 AM
Tsonga winning over Nadal was the story of Aussie 08 just like Serena was at Aussie 07.The women's side is not even worth mentioning because there were no memorable matches.The men's side was where the action was and we witnessed a star being born in Tsonga,even the eventual winners were overshadowed by the Tsonga wave.:lick:

Feb 15th, 2008, 09:40 PM
) Quarter Final debut of Radwanska

Feb 16th, 2008, 09:43 AM
Ana, Casey, Maria and Lindsay back.. good to see all

Feb 16th, 2008, 09:47 AM
