Re: BOMBSHELL! 2012: 4 different slam winners in ATP and only 3 in WTA
I was pleased to see Maria win Roland Garros, but in all honesty her supposed clay court prowess has more to do with the complete lack of depth and talent on that surface in the WTA more than anything else. She has improved her sliding to the backhand side and added a touch of topspin to her forehand, but that does not equate to a RG title without external factors coming into play. She plays her natural power game on clay and does not use variations of spin or all dimensions of the court in the way that Henin, Sanchez Vicario, Graf or Evert would do.
