The Wimbledon curse

It seems that young players who made their first slam breakthrough at Wimbledon inevitably fell into slump early in their career
Kournikova Dokic Stevenson Lucic...
Hopefully this will not happen to Kvitova

Justine Martina Kim Mary Na

Re: The Wimbledon curse

Well if you don't consider RG 2004 as Maria's first grand slam breakthrough.

Re: The Wimbledon curse

Kim Antonie Lode Clijsters?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Isn't that case with every slam-fluke player?! Otherwise they wouldn't be flukes
