Anabel ties Venus Williams for most clay court titles among actives!

Quote:
It was the 28-year-old Medina Garrigues' 10th WTA title and ninth on clay, tying her with Venus Williams for most clay court titles among active players. The former Top 20 player is projected to return to the Top 50 on Monday.

I'm just shocked that it's Venus who had the most titles on clay.

Unfortunately I gotta run to church, but do discuss.

Re: Anabel ties Venus Williams for most clay court titles among actives!

It's not surprising that Venus has the most clay titles (now with Anabel) because she is GOOD on clay. Despite what people think, Venus is more than capable on the surface plus has been around a while. It is just once she steps foot in Roland Garros, she is dreadful.

Re: Anabel ties Venus Williams for most clay court titles among actives!

Venus Williams has one of the highest percentage win/loss on clay among active players.

But she always has problems during Roland Garros, and that's why a lot of people don't give her any chance to win big title on clay...

Venus is pretty much proven on all surfaces. It's only the recent 'PEnUs SUUcKs' naysayers who believe she is some kind of one-surface hack.

Re: Anabel ties Venus Williams for most clay court titles among actives!

To have the 2nd. highest W-L record on clay and not have at least 1 RG title. Claps. Vee. THIS is your real accomplishment.

That is not true. Maria has 77.33% (after today's win) and Venus has 78.29%.

Just like Mauresmo? What is both of them and their mental blocks there?

Re: Anabel ties Venus Williams for most clay court titles among actives!

Venus has been playing for much longer than any other top player and bothers to play clay MM tournaments than no other top player cares about. 9 titles doesn't really make her better clay courter than Kuznetsova or Jankovic.

Venus doesn't suck on clay. She sucks at Roland Garros.
