Re: Which was Serena's easiest road to a Slam title?
2010 AO was not a cakewalk. Stosur leads Serena H2H in slams to date, Vika and Na play their best tennis on Plexicushion, and Justine wasn't as good as she was, but she was a dangerous floater with the unknown factor on her side.
Doesn't get easier than Zvonereva in a Wimbledon final though.
USO 2012 would have been a cakewalk if not for the final.
Biggest cakewalk of all time is still Ivanovic's slam win.
Don't know why people always think this.
Sure now you look back and say oh haha Jankovic and Safina in the SF/F but to be honest they were among the best players on clay at the time. Safina was on the rise and had taken out Henin, Serena, Sharapova, Dementieva x2 during the clay season. Jankovic was near her peak and contending for the #1 ranking...Serena wasn't good on clay that year and Henin was gone.
Anyway back to Serena, 2010 AO =/= cakewalk. Wimbledon wasn't all that much of cakewalk except for Zvonareva in the final...on the other the 2012 US Open was a cakewalk until the final. Not to take away anything from Serena, she's had incredibly tough draws before and conquered them all.
