Re: When was the last time a player won a slam without facing a TOP 5 player?

The flaw to this question is none of the top 5 faced another top 5 player. In fact Vika beat the players that beat 3 of the other 4 in the top 5. So what could she do if they couldn't beat the players to reach her? I suppose she was supposed to let Li win just so Li could boast a tough run having beaten 3 of the top 4 yer?

When was the last time a player had to play 3 of top 4 seeds in a row during a slam?

Hunny, don't play innocent. You seem to stick your nose in every thread involving Serena or where you can throw a dig. If I wasted as much time trying to throw shade @ Maria as you do Serena, I think I would have to make it my full time job.

I think we all know the rankings can be misleading. We all know the Kuzzy that Vika played in the QF is better than the Caroline Wozniacki she would have faced. Same goes for Li Na. She was a tougher challenge than Aga or Maria would have been.

Again, all I stated was facts.

But I trust, given this viewpoint you've just explained, that I'll never see you criticising Maria's "cakewalk" draw at RG last year.
