Re: The biggest R1 upset

Maybe Dinara, but I figured Date-Krumm would play Dinara tough.

However, MJMS was, I guess, injured.

Re: The biggest R1 upset

Both three are injured, or coming from an injury so I wouldnt really consider them big upsets.
Pick Dinara

Re: The biggest R1 upset

1st round losses for 'big' players are not as shocking as one might think. A player like everyone else has bad days, is unwell, feels down, injured etc. It happens. Graf and Hingis at Wimbledon spring to mind. Both bounced back - Graf more so than Hingis, but Martina still did well. It happens and I hope Safina and Azarenka put this down to 'life' and bounce back.

Re: The biggest R1 upset

Three seeds eliminated in the first round out of 32, pretty reasonable all things considered. Last year there were more.

Akgul vs MJMS on clay would have been a big upset if it wasn't for the circumstances.

Victoria and Dinara's loss were not surprising to me at all. MJMS's was.

Re: The biggest R1 upset

I didn't know MJ was injured. That was a key to that one.
Vika and Dinara werent winning any matches this clay season.

MJMS was a shocker. The others were foreseeable.

Amanmuradova. That was shocking, even with MJMS injury.

Azarenka has been slumping/injuried for half a season and Safina is pushing like a mediocre club player.

Re: The biggest R1 upset

Maria Jose was the biggest shock but she was injured. The one I can't understand is Sevastova losing to Johanna Larsson!

The way Lena's been playing, Martic was the biggest upset.

Re: The biggest R1 upset

Dinara's loss.Yes she's been injured and lacked match practice,but I would have expected her to beat a 39 year old who was struggling to move
