Re: The Serena Slam is Safe

How could a Rafa Slam even threaten the Serena Slam? It will still exist even when the Rafa Slam happens.

• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •

Re: The Serena Slam is Safe

I would be more worried about Kim Clijsters winning the Grand Slam this year...the way this year is going, she'll win all four averaging 50+ unforced errors a match

Re: The Serena Slam is Safe

Poor Rafa injuries are tough and he can't defend against that with the way he plays

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Oh stop bitching about it all the time We get it, you hate her. Go and worry about Serena and Venus, they need your concern more than Kim.

Swiss champs.

Re: The Serena Slam is Safe

Agreed, it would steal Serena's spotilight...

There's no such thing as Rafa slam or whatever, Serena slam is something it wont be matched in a long, long time!!!!

The Serena Slam is far from being unique...

Martina Slam 83/84
Steffi Slam1 88/99
Steffi Slam2 93/94

Re: The Serena Slam is Safe

It was safe regardless. It is forever etched in time and nothing anyone does after will take away from her achievements. Personally, I wanted my boo Rafa to win, but oh fucking well.

But she's the last one to do it and the only one in 21st century so far. It'll be interesting to see if anyone can actually do it in the future. The level of competition has gone up. As dominant as Federer and Nadal were they weren't able to do it, so far.

Re: The Serena Slam is Safe

It was never a "Serena Slam" anyway as she was the 3rd player to do it.

So Serena is simply a follower of greater players in Steffi and Martina

It really should be called the "Martina Slam"

Cornet // Diyas // Jankovic // Dellacqua // Pironkova // Halep // Hingis
Dulgheru // Gajdosova// Kanepi // Cetkovska // Svitolina // Niculescu // Errani

Re: The Serena Slam is Safe

...It wouldn't matter anyways, since Serena is a woman, and Nadal is a man.
