Re: BOMBSHELL! 2012: 4 different slam winners in ATP and only 3 in WTA

Sharapova was an opportunist, and so, what is wrong with that. She was given an easy draw and she capitalized. Wasn't Federer's WImble draw to the semis same thing. There us nothing wrong with taking the opportunity by the neck, i will find something wrong with it if she didn't take the opportunity given to her. Much like what Radwanska didn't do at the 2012 US Open. As a Serena fan, she also grabbed the opportunity being given an easy draw.

Back to the thread title, it's great that Serena, Vika and Maria made the WTA ATP like in the slams, but the WTA haters are never gonna acknowledge that which sucks

Wrong. Serena had two play two Grand Slam champions and played three as opposed to ONE top 20 player. You know nothing.

The women goes to show how great Vika and Serena are this year, and how big of an opportunist Maria is.


Now I know why you came for me, for mentioning Maria's silver medal in the sig.

Umm, so now its Maria's fault Serena bombed out in R1? Hmm.


Most people don't realize, Maria defeated Azarenka, Stosur, Li Na, Venus, Ana, Petra(x2) on red clay this year. And Serena couldn't manage to reach that stage in red clay tourneys where they were supposed meet.

Ivanovic - irrelevant, it's a nobody now, Azarenka was 1-9 vs Serena with 0-3 this year

Actually Azarenka had 100500 times tougher road to the Final than the winner , probably it was one of the reasons why she didn't win it.

Playing with words, as whole TF does.
Now Errani is some monster because there is "top10" next to her name, but when made final on a surface where she is much more dangerous, back then she was just a "cakewalk".
And VIP is a "grand slam champion", even she had no respectful results for 4 years.

The defensive Maria fans. She was an opportunist. She hadn't won a slam in 4 years and she did so with her weak draw. The top players fell and she took the opportunity to complete the Career Slam. If you people can't admit that then you all are crazy. Otherwise there should be no attack on my comment.

And at the Maria beat big players during clay season. Beating them during the clay season and at Roland Garros are two COMPLETELY different obstacles.

Stop trying this hard. She reached Wimbledon final, OZ final and the FO final she was due to win a major and it happened to be on the surface she won 4 titles since her comeback.

And at you thinking that the top players were going to be in the latter stages at the French Open, when was the last time top players were in the QF of this event ? This is clay and only Henin was consistent and very good on the surface.

If you go with your weirdo logic, Vika is an opportunist too. Afterall she has not won a slam before this year, she can't beat Serena, and the only other consistent player this year is the opportunist Pova who she can get her only slam win from.

And Murray must also be opportunist because of Nadal's absence, Federer bombing out to Berydh and Djoko getting screwed by the rain.

This has actually been a great year for tennis for the ATP and the WTA.

For the Big Four to all scoop up one Slam each is wonderful and it does give credence to why people even talk about the Big Four. Murray also winning the Olympic Gold in his home country gives his status a bit of oomph.

As for the ladies, Serena, Maria and Vika were the Top 3 who dominated the tour this year so it's only fitting. Then you've got Errani and Radwanska as credible anomalies.
