No offense, but all it shows is that she can't do it when it matters on a consistent basis.

i don't see what that's got to do with it but i hope you got some petty satisfaction from making your post

it must be rare for anyone to have had the chance, much less actually done it.

Serena in ' 02...she beat them back to back at Miami and at RG. Good for Masha too though, respect!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

There aren't usually 4 different women holding the slams.

Yep, Henin beat Serena at Charleston 03, too.

Ciljsters defeated Kuznetsova in Cincinnati in 09 and then Serena at 09 USO.

Re: has anyone ever beaten all 4 current slam champs within a month?

oh my god, why do some people seem to think there's some crazy fan subtext to everything? or make some petty little derogatory remark?

i was asking from a neutral interest in the historical perspective.

sometimes this board really stinks.
