To be fair to Serena, I can't recall her winning a GS when she wasn't playing great and her opponents got injured in the F or QF like this year.

AO2005 she wasn't playing that great but she fought and fought and that's why she won.

Can't say the same for Vika.

Azarenka's case is different , because only luck(injuries) and cake draw gave her this trothy.

Kim People need to watch Clijsters-Bartoli USO 2009, Clijsters-Serena USO 2009, Clijsters-Kvitova USO 2010, Clijsters-Venus USO 2010, Clijsters-Zvonareva USO 2010, Clijsters-Safina AO 2011, Clijsters-Zvonareva AO 2011 and tell me where is the awful level.

i prefer winning slam with poor performance than playing great winning 6-0 6-0 left and right but no slam title in the end.

Clijsters obviously. Also with the incompetence of her opponents unable to brush her aside

This thread is so disrespectful. not only disrespecting the winner of the slam (those being mentioned), and also indirectly disrespecting to all the players that have competed in those slams.

Zvonareva and Safina

And Venus choked as usual. Was 2010 not the year she had like 4 double faults in a row during the tie break?

Make a post the day you have watched these matches, cause you obviously did not.

Absolutely this.

Can't say the same for Vika.
Um, last year at Wimbledon she played poorly, and still barely limped through the final against a player with the flu That was certainly the least impressive tennis anyone played to win a Slam last year. Princessrenka's title is no less deserved than that one.

Also, at the continual myth that Kim played badly to win all of hers. That only works for AO '11 (and even then only up to a point); she played fantastically to at the US Opens in 2009 and 2010, with the sole exception of the '10 QF against Stosur.

Overall, least impressive tennis to win a Slam in recent years is between Serena at last year's Wimbledon, Kim at the AO'11, or Schiavone's RG win (Princessrenka's latest is slightly above those 3). Honourable mention to Stosur at the USO 11: she was very mediocre in her first 6 matches there, even for her standards, but then played brilliantly in the final.

I'm guessing you didn't actually watch any of her matches other than the final. That's okay, most people didn't.

With the exception of a couple of minor, short-lived lapses, Sam played at a high level for the whole two weeks. That's why, going into the final, the tiny group of commentators who had been paying attention gave her a decent chance of pulling off the upset that she did.

I'd go as far as to say the only really poor match Sam has played at the USO in the last 3 years was the '10 QF against Kim that you already mentioned. It was an abominable match from both of them.

Re: Slams that have been won by a player playing awful the whole tournamnet?

I doubt there are very many occurrences of this happening. Serena didn't play horribly for 7 rounds at Wimbledon last year and Kim didn't play horrible for 7 rounds in Australia 2011 or USO 2010.

If anything the way this would be measured is a player receiving W/O in multiple rounds either because their opponents were too injured to go out and play or they got a freak injury in the middle of the match. Other than that people don't just win 7 straight matches at a slam on a whim. They played the close points better than their opponents, or they handled the pressure of the moment better and didn't hit UEs left and right.

Im not sure where this thread even comes from because Vika didnt play awful the whole tournament, she didn't play her best but she deserved the title.

Might be that much more a punchy finish to the post if she hadn't beaten Princess in straights in the semi, and the defending champion in the QF in decent quality matches. And Serena did not "limp" past Radwanska in the final, the final set was comprehensive and included a one minute game on serve. Serena set new standards for serving that Wimbledon that she has been chasing and seeking to maintain ever since. What a laughable joke you are implying she was rubbish the whole tournament.

At the end of the day you don't "deserve" slams, you win them.
