1) Do we count Virginia Wade's 68 US Open and '72 AusOpen titles as flukes as well?
2) NONE of those are flukes. ALL those players were top ten players for YEARS before winning that title.
3) You want a seemingly 'flukey' GS win. Chris O'Neil 1978 OZ champ. The only tournament she ever won. She could have been Kournikova. Instead, she's a GS champ.
A fluke win is one that isn't backed up by a solid body of work, at or near that level. Majoli had been a top ten player for three or four years before winning RG, and clay was her best surface. If you had asked who would win if none of the big names did, Majoli would have been most people's reply that year.
If you've won a Tier I or two, and have been a top ten player for 3+ years, before OR after, no GS win is a fluke.
When you've done nothing in your career anywhere near the level of a win, that's when you've got a fluke. The most obvious recent example is Hantuchova's win at IW. She did spend a good solid year in the top ten. But she never won another tournament, and her game has tanked. But if she came back and won a couple Tier II's, I'd stop saying that wn was a fluke, and recall the words of the Grateful Dead.
'What a looooooooooong, strange trip it's been'.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
