As we all enjoyed last year's tennis which culminated at the TMS Cup, we had no idea the landscape would change so very quickly. For years the main rivalry was Rafa and Rog with both men racking up titles and ranking points. Greedy, the both of them, they left very few crumbs for the other pros... Fast forward to 2008, and both of these titans went months into the new season without a tournament win, something none of us could have forecasted. The first grand slam of the year is history and neither one of the two most loved players are spending their days dusting it, rather an ingenue, who warned us that he meant business has entered the fray. What are some of the shocking surprises so far? Here's mine: 1. Fed and Nadal going into April before getting their first wins! 2. Fish, Roddick, and now Stepanek defeating Federer. 3. Nadal going out on clay in a first round where he was defending champion. 4. Safina playing cool, calm, and collected tennis to defeat Serena Williams. 5. Henin not being talked about as a factor. 6. Maria winning in Oz. I truly thought she was done for now. That's all I can think of for now, but so far I'm really enjoying seeing a return to competition!
