Enough Already!!!!

Reading the releases from AP, they are calling Lindsay's win a california slam....How the hell is that a california slam? Did Lindsay win Indian Wells and have she also won the year end championships? I am not trying to be scarcastic here, but why is everyone over using the word "slam"? Everything is a slam nowadays.

Is there a Dokic slam? showing up at tourneys everywhere and not winning?

An Alexandra Stevenson slam?

A Momo slam? or a cllijsters slam? making it to finals and never winning it..

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

I don't know I guess some people feel the need to classify winning a handful of Tier 2's a mini slam. I have never heard anything such as a California slam. LOL

The Acura Classic was a tier 1

Californian slam, california swing, california sweep, same thing. Its a great achievement though

I would call it a mini slam

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

I know, this is stupid. The girl is on fire, dont hate because Lindsay beat your favorite. All of your examples contradict yourself. None of the people on there have won a slam. Everybody is using the word "Slam" because thats exactly what she's doing to every opponent.

I don't know, but nowhere in my post did I say I wasn't happy for Lindsay. I am mentioning the slam thing.

To bad she seems to run out of steam where it counts most. A Slam. I sure she's bound to repeat that same ole losing form in slams.

She can't help herself.
