I'm bored lol so heres mine

In 1999 Amanda Coetzer became the only player in history to have beaten

Steffi Graf, Martina Hingis and Lindsay Davenport.. while they were ranked No.1.

No other player has beaten ALL of those 3 players while they were ranked No1.

That's a hot Myskina picture. I think she's ugly, too.

Anyway, my piece of trivia is something I've shared on here before: all three times Dementieva beat Sharapova, Dementieva won the tournament.

On her way to the 98' Miami final Kournikova had to beat four top10 players in a row; Seles (4), Martinez (9), Davenport (2) and Sanchez-Vicario (8), before falling to #11 Venus Williams after leading her 6-2 and a break in the second set.
