Re: Which would you rather have? Career Slam or 5 titles of the same slam?
so you really think that player who wins 5 Wimbledons and who is always beaten everywhere except grass in early rounds and considered to be hardcourt and claycourt mug is a greater player than all-surface players?
Venus Williams was in all Finals and won Slams on 2 surfaces, so her 5 Wimbledons are not diminished by sucking on all other surfaces , that's why she is great ....
You can't possibly win 5 Wimbledons and suck everywhere else (even Pironkova isn't that bad
). It would be most possible with FO, but still a long shot. Sometimes it's not all about the surface
