So, what wins surprised you this year?

What tournament wins suprised you this year? For me, it was Nadal winning the title on hard court in Montreal - against Agassi of all people.

What's your choice for most suprising tournament win in 2005?

Safin winnin the AO.
Did not expect Fed to lose.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Croatia handing it to USA Davis Cup. but not a suprise to Croats. we saw it coming. USA was just to cocky.

Definitely Serra in Bucarest. He had never passed the second round in an ATP-tournament before! It really was a win out of the blue.

But I agree with all the winners mentioned by Grinder (+ Monfils in Sopot and Moodie in Tokyo)
