I've always thought Amanda Coetzer's victory at the Australian Open was very underated. Many have said how the heat affected Steffi, she risked her life etc etc, but in my mind the conditions were the same on Amanda's side of the court as well.

Is there a victory by someone, who is not your favorite, that you feel has been slightly dismissed?

adrian the conditions where not the same since Amanda had no fever and had not taken antibiotica for a inflammation on her toe before the match(and this are no excuses but known facts) but other then that I agree that I underrate these victories while Amanda deserves credit for not making errors these days(I include Berlin and Paris)

I think one of the most underrated victories is JC in Paris this year, I heard many times that she only won because a lot of players were injured but afterall she beat the number 1 in the world and Serena so it cannot have been that bad.

Amanda does have wins over Steffi when Steffi was not injured -- the Australian Open that year just isn't one of them. It is a known fact that Steffi not only had a fever and an infected toe, but that the doctors failed to warn her to avoid the sun and strenuous activities while on the particular antibiotics given to her (guess the doctors forgot they were treating an athlete that competes outdoors).
