Masha, Lindsay and Mary were much more consistent in GS. I hope they sweep the 2006 GS

Is that because there is more depth? Or is it because of basic unhealthiness/illness/injury etc

I think you are right although it is to be expected when first time Russian winners won 3 GS and Justine was sick after AO

It's because there are no great players.
Same situation as at the end of the 1950ies.
After that we had Court, King, Evert, Navratilova, Graf. Almost 40 years with at least one all-time great who swept the slams.

Today Lindsay Davenport is #1.
Enough said ...

I think was a result of illness/injury or recovery. Just a bad year for that. Hopefully and I know it was said in 2004, in 2006 we can have all the tour healthy and in top form.

I think it's a testament to the depth in womens tennis, at the same time look at the 4 players - 4 very established women. I also think it's attributed to injuries. Look at the DNPs and the early round exits. Those are abnormal.

excatly.

what is everyone whining about in here. You should be thankful that the slams were good this year, as this is where all the action was for 2005. The rest of the year (outside the slams) sucked Big time!
