Surfaces in Women's tennis

This could just be from my stupid perspective, but I have the opinion that surfaces are less decisive in womens tennis than in mens. Most good female players are good on all surfaces, but sometimes have a slight preference of surface. I don't think the Williams sisters have any problems on any surface. They are dominant on clay, hardcourt and grass.
Any other opinions

Dominant on clay? How many clay tournaments have they won this year?


But I agree that there are no real surface specialists on the women's side.

Sorry about that, I meant when they were in top form (sorry Venus) and uninjured (sorry Serena)

dont forget venus did pretty well last clay season so they can dominate on clay (venus can anyway) if they really get in form. but agree surfaces dont mean much in womens tennis, at least not with the best players (top 10/15). lower down the ranks i think there are more specialists though.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Yeah Venus won those 2 tournaments last year but she didn't beat a single top-10 player. You can hardly call that dominating the field.

Sesil is really a clay court specialist?
That's cool because I love players who like playing on clay.
