Re: How does Sharapova's career slam stack up against the Career slams before hers?
It sure is a great achievement to win a GS in Grass/Clay/Hard, there are even fewer players doing that. Of course it's not as impressive as when Serena's or Graf have done it since it was in a shorter period of time. BUT Maria did have a huge step back during her career with that nasty shoulder injury. Some people may argue that she has now became a better clay courter and it's her new specialty so it makes that long time her career grand slam less impressive. On the other hand, she has finals on GS finals all surfaces and in all GS exept at the USO where she made the SF and that AFTER her shoulder injury...not many player has done that...actually she's the only active player to have that kind of record in the last 2 years. She sure has not became a claycourt specialist then, so her career is very impressive to me. I think most people doesn't really realize what kind of achievements Sharapova has done. Still would get behind Serena but still Maria's record is very impressive.
