Garbin, Sugiyama, Tanasugarn, Ruano Pascual: 1 of them gets a big win every GS

I like to think of these 4 players as the WTA "Grannies Club" (all are 32 or older). Every GS, one of these senior citizens is taking out a couple of seeds and reaching the 4th round. I can't stand any of their over-the-hill junk-balling games, but I have long given up hope that any of the 4 of them will ever retire or go away or stop their torturous and never-ending mid-runs to GS 4th rounds...

All four are amazing. It's not our problem you don't like players with a bit of variety.

Out of those, Garbin plays the most agressive.

...and Ruano Pascual the least agressive, as demonstrated right now.


serena, jankovic, venus, na, hsieh, date-krumm, jovanovski
makarova, diatchenko, halep, goerges and kvitova

I assume this was a jinx thread to make sure that VRP wouldn't take out Serena? Not that I really think that could have happened of course.
