Re: Which would you rather have? Career Slam or 5 titles of the same slam?
Not really if thats all you have. And thats all Sharapova have going for her so far.
Open era CGS:
Margaret Court, Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova
Anyone can see Sharapova as the odd one out. She doesn't quite fit.
I suspect she doesn't give a damn about whether she fits or not
She has a CGS and you can only weep and bang your head against the wall

I am still proud of that. Losing to the best player of the decade is no reason to be ashamed of. But you wouldn't understand that and I don't think any Serena fan will. It's the part of cheering for an inferior player and Serena fans have it much easier in all the comparisons. Besides it's not like Maria lost the Career Golden Slam to Kudryavtseva or other mug
