No, what it means is that she has a 100% record and is very strong at the business end of the AO relative to other players' records. The fact she actually has few unexpected losses here is reflected in her high W/L %age.

Yet you Kim for her 6 SF losses. A joke.

(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Re: Most SF at Australian Open

SF at Slam is something like World Championships Bronze Medal in other sports... Hantuchova might be more proud of her SF in Melbourne than of her Indian Wells
