There's something to be said about the players who can tap into their own personal best and do well when it counts the most. It's all about peaking at just the right time and elevating your game, your fight, and your belief in yourself to get the job done on the biggest stage their is in tennis, the slams. IMO, Serena is that best at doing that, beating her during the other tournaments is never easy, but beating her at a slam is a worthy feat! A player that can get in the "zone" during the Slams is a multiple slam winner, guaranteed! That last set @ AO was Serena, peaking at just the right time- that's what champs do...
JCap was good at bringing out her best ball during the slams, especially considering she won so few other tournaments. I'm still not sure I would include her in this discussion only because of her problems with clossing out her SF matches at the US Open. Major props to Maria and Justine for being equally fierce competitors during the majors.
