Re: Which was Serena's easiest road to a Slam title?

Why don't people seem to realize that Sereta ALWAYS has a cakewalk draw not because she draws scrubs, but because she is a billion steps above EVERYONE else.
Put the question this way, other than Enna and St. Kimberle (both long since gone and forgotten), who exactly would be a NON-cakewalk draw for Sereta ? Azarenka ? No. Sharapova ? Hell No. Ludmilla ? Don't make me laugh.

This is off-topic too.

I know that every single time you write something like this, people bring poor Tsvetana into a discussion, but it's just hard to resist. Calling Ivanovic a scrub, while your fave is a girl who couldn't reach top 30 even with a slam SF points in her ranking, that's just priceless. While slumping Ana is a top 15 player.

That was absolutely not the point, so far we were just arguing about Errani and she is indeed a bigger cakewalk on HC than she is on clay and I think we've seen this on the respective surfaces this year.

I'm not comparing Maria's FO draw and Serena's USO draw because it's true that having Vika in the final was a big challenge and if I wanted to compare their draws I would have mentioned Kvitova because we all know she is a more talented player than Vika and a more dangerous one too I would have certainly not mentioned Errani

Being more talented doesn't even mean that you are more dangerous or a toughest draw, heck it doesn't even mean you're a good player.

Last year? Well, considering Maria went 3-0 against Petra, while going 2-4 against Vika...clearly that dispells your logic. Nice try though.

Yeah, "slumping Ana". The perennial "slump" of the tour. Last time I checked, slumps don't last for 4 fucking years.

And I wouldn't even bother talking priceless when it comes to VIP's career either. Do you really have time to hear about all those embarrassing losses from somebody who used to be ranked #1 and won a GS?

In this case, it does. Kvitova will always be a bigger threat on clay than Vika will ever be. I'm not even sure that Vika will ever reach FO semis.

That doesn't make any sense. Obviously 15 is far more than four, but I don't understand why Serena having 15 majors means Maria has barely four
