When in doubt -

Just a quick question for WTAWorld subscribers.

If two players had a similar career with the only exception being slam success.

Player A - 5 Slam Finals, 0 Wins.
Player B- 1 Win, 1 Final.

If all other stats, money, titles, etc were about even.

Do you consider 5 Finals to be greater than 1 Win?

Re: When in doubt -

But I would criticise their mental fortitude in failing to win a single slam.
The other player could be passed off as a fluke. Wrongly, in my opinion, because winning a slam is a monumental achievement.
