and for good reason, because the player is subsequently not fresh for the GS. Demi probably won't win the Aus Open.

No, 1985 Brisbane, Sydney, AO. And also, if you start a thread and say EVEr and not check every year and are wrong, you look like a fool.

Navratilova won Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in 1985. More recenlty Clijsters won 2 preceding events before Flushing Meadows in 2005, but had the week off before the tournament.

of course winning 2 warmups and then having the week off before the Slam is not what I was talking about.

Re: No player has EVER won a Slam after winning the 2 preceding warmup events

Meaningless observation. Only a handful of players play in the two weeks before a GS, and they are usually not the favorites for a GS title. Even fewer actually manage to win both events.

2016 saviors of the WTA

ANGELIQUE KERBER 63 75 DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA 60 60
LOUISA CHIRICO 60 60 IRINA-CAMELIA BEGU 63 62 KARIN KNAPP 63 67 60

that just re-inforces my point - that Demi is not a favorite for the AO title.

Don't act to high and mighty bud, since somebody proved you wrong within 10 posts of the thread.
