Name a Dubious Achievemnt of Your Fave

We all, some more than others, blindly defend our faves actions even when sometimes their actions are inexcusable. So to lighten up the mood, let's name dubious achievements for our favorite players. In case you don't know what a dubious achievement is, it is something a player has "achieved" that they wouldn't necessarily be proud of. Here's mine:

Venus Williams is the first woman to lose in 5 consecutive Grand Slam finals

Your turn

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams



[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]


I GOT 5 ON IT!!!!! VENUS WILLIAMS 5 TIME WIMBLEDON CHAMPION!!!!!

Martina Hingis has not reached a GS final outside the Australian Open since 1999.

Although Serena is 25, she still plays the schedule of a player under AER. Since turning pro in 1995 to 2006, Serena has played less than 70 tournaments her entire career. That's an average of less than 10 tournaments a year.
