Woz: the slamless player with the most titles?

Woz won her 20th title I believe today.

Has any player with that many titles ended up her career slamless?
I know at some point Sin Clijsters had 20+ titles with 5 or so Tier I and 10+ MM (a Shreck mess ).

Is Woz the only broad to be that non-substantial?

Probably, but then she only has 2 titles (Indian Wells and the Canadian Open) that are actually worth anything, so....

Re: Woz: the slamless player with the most titles?

she's basically took her opportunities well to hoover so many titles.
she's never had to face rena, masha, vee or henin in a final and most of her title wins have been over a vast majority of russians, lower ranked players. I think peak vera and sam today were the only highly ranked players she managed to beat in a final

Pam Shriver was never a contender to win a slam during her whole carreer. Unlike Woz.

Re: Woz: the slamless player with the most titles?

Jana Novotna was slamless but then won Wimbledon. I think she has 24 titles in total and it must have been her third-fourth last (from the top of my head I can also remember Prague right after Wimbledon and Hannover in 1999).

FLAVIA PENNETTA

US OPEN CHAMPION 2015

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

I think she was top 3 for a long time and made a major final...

She was in the U.S. Open final in 1978 and lost to Evert 7-5, 6-4. In addition, she made the semifinals in numerous other slams.

When was Woz ever a contender to win a slam? She never was.

Even if that was true (which it isn't), that still doesn't change the statistic.

Look at Shriver's record againt Evert and Nav and you'll get my point. In h2d she was
0-16 against Evert till 1987 (3-18 all-time)
3-40 against Nav

Kim had like 27 titles before winning USO 05, I think...But then she had already been to more than one GS final at that point

Poor Woz will stack up many titles but no slam
