The Worst Grand Slam Winner?

well, i mean they are all great champions with great play styles, all of them
they all earned their crown by hard work in a fortnight.
but isn't it interesting to see who was the luckiest to win a grand slam?

1. Iva Majoli | 1 Win, 5 QFs
2. Anastasia Myskina | 1 Win, 5 QFs
3. Ana Ivanovic | 1 Win, 2 Fs, 1 SF, 1 QF (overall, she has made QF only 5 times but her career isn't over yet )
4. Conchita Martínez | 1 Win, 2 Fs, 9 SFs, 3 QFs
5. Jana Novotná | 1 Win, 3 Fs. 5 SFs, 13 QFs

i think 4 options are enough...right?

love will come through

Re: The Worst Grand Slam Winner?

There is no worst, at the time they won they all deserved it.

Ana is an absolute mess now, but nobody can take her achievements away from her, and the same goes for any other player, she once was a very good player!

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Exactly. Threads that are designed to denigrate Grand Slam champions don't deserve a great deal of respect. Particularly this one where it is very clear that the poster did not do their research properly, perhaps because doing so would have provided an answer he or she wasn't looking for. The very obvious correct answer by the way is what Uranium wrote here. Although even they deserved their titles and don't deserve to be involved in stupid pointless threads like this.

You have already fucked up with your original post which won't give you the answer you were looking for so you change the question. Very clever and mature.

Why don't you choose one after the 70s? And when you have done so, go away and leave the rest of us alone.

Re: The Worst Grand Slam Winner?

These were all great players. Go back further and you'll find much worse.

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.
