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 :bounce:

Michael Chang RG 1989 ........ he was dead on his feet vs Lendl and he came back to beat Edberg in final :mad:
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! :eek:
All of them good surprises, I should add. :D

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

i will when i win 1. :D j/k
07-26-2002, 11:02 AM
Johansson!!! The final was so bored!
07-26-2002, 12:18 PM
He beat Marat!
07-26-2002, 01:24 PM
I never would have guessed Johansson to win a Grand Slam; the same thing for Kuerten when he won the French for the first time. I remember thinking that year that Kuerten was a guy who might make the top 20, but never dreamed he would be a Grand Slam winner!

Sampras when he won his seventh wimbledon :D j/k
07-26-2002, 07:32 PM
Johannson moreso than Costa, because Costa has had a lot of success even before Roland Garros.

pete sampras at the us open 90, see that time I was already a Steffi fan but I also loved Andre so when they both lost the finals again I was shocked then I decided only to support Steffi because two favs was not good for my health;)
so when steffi retired and started to date Andre the circle was round again;)
