Hsieh's stunning running, winning 3 matches qualifying matches, and then 3 matches in the main draw to reach the 4th round. In the main draw, she beat players ranked 95, 138, and 89 places to extend her stay into the 2nd week.
Also Makiri reaching the 4th round of a grand slam for the first time in her career.

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.

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.

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:
