Re: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"
I don't think Francesca's win was a fluke as much as the others. Francesca BARELY lost to Na because she was too exhausted playing all of those LONG 3 set matches just to make it to the finals. Had not she had to play so hard, I do believe she would have had the energy to beat Na. Francesca is the only one who was able to make it back to the finals the following year.
None of the other players have been able to make it back to the finals to defend their title. Bartoli retired, so we don't know if she would have made it to the finals again, and I doubt that she would have.
The others are one slam flukers.
But that is mainly because she had the biggest cake draw ever and barely had to play any high ranked players.
Bartoli's Wimbledon was a fluke, since she would have lost to half of the players in the draw.
Not only had Bartoli played another GS Final….but she played another WIMBLEDON FINAL. The same event where she has wins over Serena Williams and Justine Henin
