Wozniacki was not a surprise, she was that inevitable mistake that happens during a process :d I blame Fett!

If she was the mistake, then what would you call Bartoli or Pennetta? Personally i blame Kerber, it was her slam to lose and somehow she managed to need 3 sets to beat Hsieh and then to choke the match away against Halep, otherwise i am 99% sure that she would have won the title.

Yes, Felix has everything it takes, but there is a huge question mark whether his health issues will allow him to play multiple best of 5 matches in a short time in the future. Who knows, maybe ATP will decide to have best of 3 at slams too, then Felix and Zverev might have a serious chance at slams.

 

I really, really hope they will never ever change best of 5! :zip: 

I am actually not worried for Zverev. He is just too good not to have one.

There's a difference with inevitable mistake and random mistake :lol: Most us expected that one day the starts will align and Woz is gonna win a Slam :d Her consistency was the key. But again - Bartoli and Wimbledon (already one final in 2007) and Pennetta at US Open (regular quarterfinalist) were surprising winners but when you look more carefully - they somehow always were next in line at those events.

 

Hsieh played sooo good in that match, you cannot blame Kerber for being dragged in a long match. And honestly, with 2017 she had, she needed that run in Sydney which even might have surprised her.

If they wont change it to best of 3, Zverev will never win a slam. Personally i prefer best of 3, thats why i prefer watching womens tennis. Best of 5 just takes to long, its the same as with football. I think i never watched a full football/best of 5 match because after 2-3 hours it just gets too boring for me.

Wozniacki was the most surprising slam winner ever and she still became number 1 if i remember correctly, gonna be hard for Osaka to top that.

 

Huh? Wozniacki winning a singles GS was far less surprising than Ostapenko or Samantha fuckin Stosur! Hell, Ostapenko winning was more surprising than Osaka too.

Ostapenko winning on clay was actually surprising, especially after she told she doesn't like to play on clay. :d But again, Sharapova called herself "cow on ice" and won two RG titles :d
