Sorry if I left out your favourite, just PM me to let me know-- thanks.
Good point. How long has it been since there was a surprise winner at Wimbledon? Doesn't happen very often (and even less often at the USO).
The last two were hardly surprises, and whilst Ivanisevic's win wasn't expected in 2001, he wasn't an unlikely winner, having been in the final three times previously.
Krajicek would be the last one, I suppose, or maybe Michael Stich?
