I know both WS & Mauresmo lost to lower ranked opponents, but Mauresmo let the pressure get to her, Myskina was a better clay courter than Venus & Capriati had just beaten Serena in Rome so I wouldn't call them 'huge upsets' as such.

3R USO 2007 - already weak bottom half was completely wiped out

I remember that...wondering how on earth the Williams sisters landed in a quarter with Ivanovic, Jankovic, and Henin...while Sharapova only had to deal with, potentially, Kuznetsova and Hingis....boy...was I wrong. Schnyder, Sharapova, Hingis, all gone!!!

Venus had a 15match winning streak on Clay
Wins in Charleston- 2 FedCup matches - Warsaw
and a Final in Berlin...

Myskina is on a 2 losing streak going to RG...
had won 1 match on clay in 2004 prior RG...

Yeah. Thats why the top half of the draw was garbage.

I remember the heartbreak of Sabine screaming in pain and JJ losing short after
