Re: Is Francesca Schiavone an opportunistic and her Slam just a fluke?
Fluke is too harsh a word, as it's not like she was just rolling dice or laying a bet on a roulette wheel, and it was strictly up to the mathematical odds.
She worked her ass off to win her trophy.
But on the other hand, some draws are easier than others. If she'd been on Stosur's side of the draw, I doubt she's in the final.
But, as they say, you play who's in front of you, and she is hardly the only slam winner who's had a few breaks go her way.
Is she likely to duplicate it? Probably not. Does that mean she didn't earn it? Definitely not.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
