Take my Sporcle Quiz

Name all of the women's grand slam finalists since 2000 in under 5 minutes. But obviously no cheating; no researching. Just knowledge:

Re: Take my Sporcle Quiz

Done with 0:30 left, I had trouble remembering Zvonareva

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Take my Sporcle Quiz

Only Finalists
I thought about winners as well and wondered why Kvitova wasn't right
Missed: Sharapova
Davenport
Misspelled Schiavone
Mary Pierce
Martinez

Probably because she's a very forgettable runner-up and those were awful finals.
