That is crazy! So I guess I'll be rooting for Jen to lose in these tourneys before a slam

well, here's to another 2R loss (not in a GS, though)

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

You know, I think when Jen gets to a Grand Slam final she clicks into another gear. She simply refuses to lose. 3-0 is some kind of record in Grand Slams, especially your FIRST THREE Slam finals ever. Wow. Go Jen in 2002!!!

One more thing, Jenn had won 4 titles since 2001 and in each occasion SHE BEAT MARTINA HINGIS! Does this mean that she should follow the same schedule as Martina?

ROGER FEDERER
7 Wimbledons 5 US Opens 4 Australian Opens 1 Roland Garros 1 Olympic Silver Medal


ELENA DEMENTIEVA MARTINA HINGIS JENNIFER CAPRIATI LI NA PENG SHUAI ZHENG JIE MARIA KIRILENKO ALIZE CORNET
