Only ONE player has ever beaten Serena and Sharapova in the same tournament

That one player being Elena Dementieva in Toronto in 2009

Any thoughts? And is there a chance of a second person doing it in 2013?

Let's see if a certain fanbase can actually READ and COMPREHEND what the point is this time, rather than misreading it as "Maria > Serena"

Vika almost did it this year...so it could be her to do it next year. Doesn't have much trouble beating Masha, so it's about learning how to beat Serena.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

How many players have beaten Serena and Henin or Serena and Hingis?

No one is beating Rena and Maria at the same tournament ever again. The one who can come close to it is definitely Azarenka at AO or Kvitova at Wimbledon.

That's not what the thread is about. Go create your own thread.

The Serena/Henin combo has been done a few times. I was actually preparing a thread a while ago about players who'd beaten 2+ players of the Top 5 of the 00s Generation in one tournament a while ago, but got bored...I shall see if I can dig it out.

Azarenka came within two points of doing it this year, she'll probably do it eventually.

I remember Stosur beating Henin and Serena at FO 2010, and then choking miserably in the final. Oh Stosur.

Of course you are, you lack imagination to come up with a original idea for a thread so you have to copy somebody elses threads.

That's only because Serena goes on a rampage anytime she smells Maria near her in the draw. Like blood to a shark.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Or maybe someone random at Roland Garros.
