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?

10-09-2005, 02:30 AM
Safin winning the Aussie Open. :worship:

10-09-2005, 02:32 AM
There's a couple:
Kenneth Carlsen winning Memphis
Wayne Arthurs winning Scottsdale
Florent Serra winning Bucharest
Jonas Bjorkman winning Ho Chi Min City

Rafa = Fed Killa

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

Bjorkman's recent victory was a big surprise, definitely!

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

10-09-2005, 07:53 AM
Moodie :eek:

10-09-2005, 08:17 AM
Safin at Oz, Nadal whole year, Jonas last week, and David at Munich.

10-09-2005, 08:20 AM
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)

10-09-2005, 08:26 AM
AO by Safin.. that was amazing!

10-09-2005, 08:48 AM
Croatia handing it to USA Davis Cup. but not a suprise to Croats. we saw it coming. USA was just to cocky.

Agree with u...

And another suprise Moodie winning in Tokyo!!!!!!!!! :sad:

10-09-2005, 08:54 AM
Slovaks going all the way to Davis cup finals :worship:

10-09-2005, 11:52 AM
AO by Safin and Nadal^s great year.

10-09-2005, 12:02 PM
SLovakia in the davis cup finals :yippee:

10-09-2005, 12:09 PM
Moodie in Tokyo !!!

This was the first and will be the last time in my life that i bet money on Ancic :sobbing: ... although Moodie made me to win a lot of money against Nieminen ;)

Ancic , one of the most overrated players that i know :o

10-09-2005, 12:13 PM
how about this Moodie win :eek: that was quite surprising!

10-09-2005, 03:12 PM
Is Moodie an Aussie or South African?

10-09-2005, 03:18 PM
South African

10-09-2005, 03:31 PM
Actually, since Moodie has beaten Ancic previously, I was not at all surprise. Moodie also deserved the win after beating the people he did.

10-09-2005, 03:57 PM
For me: Slovakia making DC finals :), Gasquet winning Nottingham :), Wawrinka making Gstaad finals, Serra wins Bucharest, Davydenko's rise into the Top 6 :), Tojo making a GS semifinal again :), Monfils winning Sopot, Bjorkman winning HCM, and Moodie winning Tokyo!

10-09-2005, 04:06 PM
Is Moodie an Aussie or South African?

Moodie is a South African, I think the Aussie you are referring is his doubles partner who is stephen huss.

10-09-2005, 04:19 PM
Davydenko's rise into the Top 6 :)

I posted about this earlier. His rise into the top 10 has been pretty astounding.

10-09-2005, 05:14 PM
Puerta's RG final, also

10-09-2005, 05:22 PM
Gaudio winning 5 titles also surprised me.

10-09-2005, 05:34 PM
The three veterans Carlsen, Arthurs and Bjorkman winning in Memphis, Scottsdale and Ho Chi Minh City.

Serra's win in Bucharest and Moodie's in Tokyo.

I suppose Ginepri's win in Indianapolis was a bit surprising.

I didn't think Gasquet would win his first ever title on grass in Nottingham.

Slovakia or Croatia lifting the Davis Cup is possibly the biggest surprise.
