Who has beaten Serena and Justine in same tournament since 2003?

Is Dinara the first? I assume not, but I can't think of anyone else right now.

No-one has. If you actually think about it, apart from 2007 and 2008, seeing Justine and Serena on the same entry list in any given tournament has been quite a rare thing. It's not all that surprising that Safina is the first.

The surprising thing is that Safina had just beaten Justine and Serena back-to-back, and not Venus, or somebody else

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Re: Who has beaten Serena and Justine in same tournament since 2003?

whats so magical about 2003? They both turned pro years before that.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Maybe both of them are already slam winners after the year.

well did anyone do it before 2003? Justine was just an average top ten player before 03 though. It wouldn't be the same. Like Arantxa beat Venus and Serena back to back in like 1998 I believe...but...seriously, that's not as big of a deal as when Justine did it last US Open, and no one did it when both girls were at their peak. Wow...dinara...lol who would have thought!

Well, they were never really healthy at the same time and Serena played so little since then. It's not a huge surprise IMO.

The most likely place they'd meet are small tournaments (and they rarely if ever have played the same tournaments outside of slams in that time frame) or slams and out of the 12 slams from 2004-2006, they only played in 6 together.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

No one has.
The last time is Kim Clijsters in 2002 YEC.

Since 2003, no one did that.
For Serena only lost 3 times in 2003;
Henin just played 8 events in 2004;
Justine has only lost 5 matches in 2005; 4 in 2007;
Serena only played 4 tours in 2006.
So Safina is first.

And what does Safina get for this outstanding effort? A place in the quarterfinals. What a tough draw to come through.

Who has beaten 2 straight slam winners/#1s at any event?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.
