my, my, who would expect THAT!

Both 2008 Australian Open Champions fell in the semis of the Pacific Life Open.

This was an afternoon the public will long remember. And not only because it was absolutely sun-drenched and most of them were probably in a near-sunstoke state,
but because of a certain performance by a 98th ranked player.. Now you might say that Federer did not play his best - ok, but you have to admit that the way Mardy Fish set the tone during his semifinal against the world number 1 was really impressive:
hitting the ball early, going for winners, consistency throughout the game... Long story short: The Roger Federer had to say adieu in just over an hour.

After his winning match Fish said: "It feels pretty good". Oh, we bet it does!

In the ladies event Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated Maria Sharapova, thus ending her compatriot's All Perfect Start of the 2008 Season.

Sharapova had a 18-match winning streak this season and she hadn't been defeated not even once! Until this fatal semifinal.. but don't worry Maria, it's all probably just because you forgot your Lady Speed Stick that day!
