Clijsters could achieve a "SF Slam"...

If Kim Clijsters is eliminated in the semi finals of the upcoming U.S. Open *probably by Henin-Hardenne as I can't see the top 4 seeding for the U.S. Open chaning from what it was for Wimbledon* she will have been eliminated in the Semi Finals of every Grand Slam tournament played in 2006.

I was wondering who the last person was that was eliminated in the semis of all 4 grand slams in the one calendar year?

Thanks.

I don't know but this isn't something she should want to achieve. Because:

1. She's the defending champion
2. She's most likely the 2nd seed

So this would be a big underachievement.

She has remarkable consistency. I think everybody, especially the top players, are aiming to win these Majors, but four SF is one year is a remarkable achievement, as well.

Let them eat cake.

that would he a HUGE underachievement for her!
hasn't she been #2 ALL year? and not living up to her seed isn't something to strive for when you're as good as she.

that's actually a good achievement for her. she's had a lot of struggles, and she's knocking on the door to be getting back into the final 8 of slams. i hope she achieves this feat!

oh, and i wish she could win 3 matches in a row at a tour event
