2000 - Mary Pierce wins Charleston AND Roland Garros.
2001 - Jennifer Capriati wins Charleston AND Roland Garros
2002 - Iva Majoli wins Charleston but not Roland Garros
2003 - Justine Henin wins Charleston AND Roland Garros
2004 - Venus Williams wins Charleston....??????????

Ah, but see...Iva won Charleston 5 years after she won Roland Garros which is one less than the number of games Hingis got in 1997!

Heh... this is what I thought when she won, but I didn't want to say. I think it's a tradition which goes back even further - I remember when Iva won in '02 I got all excited about Iva's chances at RG, until I realised that she'd go back to sucking again very quickly.

well, if the pattern of win, win, lose is correct... venus is then in line to win RG


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Hopefully Venus will keep up the trend of Charleston and Roland Garros winners being one and the same.

I just want Venus to be happy and healthy. If she is both of those things, she will win Roland Garros...because she is the best player in the world when she is 100% healthy, 100% determined.

Go girl...do you thang.

Although this is true, the only person to throw a wrench in this perfectly planned out history is SERENA! In '02, when Majoli won, her side of the draw was really depleted, much like Venus', but Venus is a GS quality player. When Majoli got to RG, she lost in the second round. I can almost guarantee however, that this year's RG final will be a repeat of the '02 final with similar results!

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

very good research!!!

Had only Patty won Charleston that year, she could have been the RG winner, cuz she do have lots of finesse...
