Why do some players only do well in slams then suck in tour events?

for example Pironkova, Paszek, Stephens, Mchale, Makarova, Lepchenko

Why is it these players can only make it far in GS then seem to forget to play tennis in regular tour events.

What's the deal?

Not sure about the others, but Pironkova has benefited from easy draws throughout her career, except at Wimbledon, where she's a top-10 player.

Bratchikova too, I suppose they feel that the MM tournaments aren't worthy of their talent

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.

I wonder what made you create this thread. Makarova getting thrashed by Serena?

Stephens, McHale, and Lepchenko get their rankings up from tour events....
