Serena is the only top 4 seed to have reached a GS semi this year!

Serena Williams is clearly the only top player worthy of the name in 2010 as she is the only top 4 seed to have made a semi this year!

In Australia, seeds 2-4 all crashed out at last 16 stage (Dinara,Caro,Sveta)

In Paris, all top 4 (Serena, Venus, JJ, Caro) were gone before the semis

At Wimbledon, seeds 2-4 crash out for the loss of 11 games in total!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Not only that, but in the last 5 slams, of the 20 spots SF available, Serena has made 4-5. Dementieva has been in 2(09 W/10 F). 14 other women have made one appearance.

Radwanska and Pennetta are the only current top 10 players not to reach a semi in this stretch.

i'm no fan, but respect to serena for being the only top player who is consistent. even in paris she was close to reaching the semis.
consistency used to be kim's strength, too bad that seems not to be the case anymore

She is also on a consecutive streak reaching at least the QFs of all the last slams she's entered since missing the french a few years back. How many is that now for her?

Marti Pary- HINGIS
SERENA WILLIAMS
Monica Seles
