Re: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"
I see so often on this board that some Slam winners are called Fluke winners (like Bartoli this year)
So the question is: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke". Is it enough to win second Slam to confirm legitimacy of joining Grand Slam winners' club?
Also, what are the reasons, criteria for calling Slam winner -"Fluke" winner.
Which Slam wins do you consider "Fluke" and why?
As long as you have another appearance in a slam final, or a couple semis, it's hard to argue a win was undeserved, which is what a term like 'fluke' implies. Schiavone and Bartoli both had ended up losing in the finals, as well as winning their particular slams. And in Bartoli's case, what all the players commenting on her win talked about how hard she works.
When you put the work in, year after year, to the level that your fellow player players find your work ethic exceptional
, and then you finally reap the benefits, words like 'just reward' and 'wel deserved' are far more applicable than 'fluke'.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
