Great accomplishment, but do they even have Tier 5's anymore?

If only Ree had won some more Tier IVs... perhaps she wouldnt be stuck with a pathetic 9 slams.

at people reactions.

This is NOT about being the best, more its just an interesting statistic, especially since not many players achieve this feat.

And it's a feat that can't be accomplished ever again, as the Tier V has been discontinued and the Tier system will be retired at the end of the year.

That's cool. And ofcourse, this thread wouldn't be complete without the rampant paranoia from representatives of certain fanbases.

JJ seems to be driving everyone on TF crazy in 2008. Ajde! Hehe.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Another interesting note: Molik only won FIVE titles in her career, and they all came at the different Tier levels.

JJ will become the last player to do so, as Erik pointed out.

Cool achievement.
