Which Slam Champion has shocked you the most with one of there Slam wins?

Hi Guys,

I was just wandering when were you the most shocked that a player won a Grand Slam. It might be for different reasons, maybe because of surface, timing, or you may just not have expected it.

Just wandering guys.

Enjoy the thread

hehehehe

Michael Chang RG 1989 ........ he was dead on his feet vs Lendl and he came back to beat Edberg in final

Stefan Edberg US 1992 was a break down in 5th set in 4th rd(Krajicek), QF(Lendl) and SF(Chang) and still came thru to beat Sampras in final that was the best, i can still remember that.

Thomas Johansson AUS 2002 do i need to say anymore

Albert Costa RG 2002 ........ ditto as above

Thomas Johansson was a shocker win, and the best of the year so far But as I watched the Aussie Open progress, it seemed almost like Goran at last year's Wimbly--destiny!

Guga in RG 1997, of course. No one knew about him even here in Brasil!

Johansson this year was big surprise too.
Goran last year in Wimbledon!

All of them good surprises, I should add.

I would never expect Costa to win a Grand Slam before Ferrero and Corretja for example, and he shocked me most I believe.

Also Johansson, I know he was a good player, but not enough to win a title like a Grand Slam. It's pretty weird.

When Korda won a GS title. I mean, I never expected

Nicolas Almagro ~ Igor Andreev ~ Fernando Verdasco ~ Jo-Wilfred Tsonga ~ Mario Ancic ~ Marat Safin

Gaël Monfils ~ Thierry Ascione ~ Alejandro Falla ~ Paul-Henri Mathieu ~ Robby Ginepri ~ Simone Bolleli ~ Cecil Mamiit ~ Ivan Miranda ~ Thiago Alves ~ Bjorn Phau ~ Ivan Ljubicic ~ Frank Dancevic ~ Mariano Zabaleta ~ Mariano Puerta ~ Gilles Simon ~ Richard Gasquet ~ Janko Tipsarevic ~ Andreas Seppi ~ Gilles Mueller ~ Thomas Bellucci
