Was Razzano's win over Serena the most stunning upset ever in women's tennis!?

Razzano, as 111th in the World, beat the No.5 ranked player Serena, who had been unbeaten on clay that season (winning Madrid and semis in Rome) and who had never lost a 1R match in a GS.

I think it was a big shock, but was it the biggest ever?

What do you think?

Definitely the most shocking out of those listed. Hingis was emotionally wrecked following her French Open fiasco, Henin was sick, and Ana is mentally ill.

Re: Was Razzano's win over Serena the most stunning upset ever in women's tennis!?

It's up there for sure. Because it came from out of nowhere. Serena has had success and decent results at Roland Garros and has had a good clay court season. So this was very shocking.

Re: Was Razzano's win over Serena the most stunning upset ever in women's tennis!?

it's shocking due to the fact it's Razzano who defeated her and Serena never lost 1st Rd GS ever, until yesterday

Re: Was Razzano's win over Serena the most stunning upset ever in women's tennis!?

I feel like all of these other losses have an excuse:

Justine had that cytomegalovirus or whatever against Garbin
Steffi began to aggravate a back injury.
Ivanovic's form indicated that she was going to be upset.
Hingis was still hungover from that Roland Garros debacle.

Serena's loss seemingly comes out of the blue, unless she's hiding an injury or something. So yes, Serena's loss probably is the biggest upset in the past couple of decades.

You do realize McNeil was ranked #22 when she beat Graf, right? Definitely showing some ignorance of tennis history by including that match.

But Serena's loss is definitely up there.

All I can say is who the hell knows what is going to happen the rest of the tournament.

How can that be possible? They met first round. That's weird.
