Re: Grand Slam winners without dropping a set (1990-2010)

It's interesting to note that there are 4 who never got taken to a 7-5 or 7-6 set:

Navratilova - Wimbledon 1990
Steffi Graf - Australian 1994
Mary Pierce - Australian 1995
Venus Williams - US 2001

Lindsay almost had it at the 1998 US (her last set was 7-5), and Maria almost had it at the Australian in 2008 (first set of the final was 7-5).

Impressive that Davenport didn't drop a set in any of her GS victories, despite facing players like Hingis, Venus, Graf and Capriati.

Re: Grand Slam winners without dropping a set (1990-2010)

So, in the last 20 years the Fabulous Serena Williams, who also happens to be the most talented female tennis player ever, won the most Grand Slam titles without the losing of a single set in those particular tournaments.

Moreover, in the last 20 years the Fabulous Serena Williams won more Grand Slam titles while beating more of the WTA Top 5 ranked players than any other Grand Slam winners in that same period. In 11 of her 13 Grand Slam titles, the greatest player of the last decade on the WTA tour, has beaten at one player ranked in the Top 5 as follows:

1. 1999 US Open - #1 Hingis, #2 Davenport, #4 Seles.
2. 2002 French Open - # 1 Capriati, #2 Venus.
3. 2002 Wimbledon - #1 Venus.
4. 2002 US Open - #2 Venus, #4 Davenport (protected ranking).
5. 2003 Australian Open - #2 Venus, #4 Clijsters.
6. 2003 Wimbledon - #3 Henin, #4 Venus.
7. 2005 Australian Open - #1 Davenport, #2 Mauresmo, #4 Sharapova.
8. 2007 Australian Open - #2 (#1 Seeded) Sharapova. (Also, this particular Grand Slam win constituted the only Grand Slam won by any player while beating 6 seeded players in all of tennis history).
9. 2008 US Open - #2 Jankovic.
10. 2009 Australian Open - #2 Safina, #4 Dementieva.
11. 2009 Wimbledon - #3 Venus, #4 Dementieva.

Therein,
a. In 5 of her 13 Grand Slam titles The Fabulous One has beaten the #1 ranked or #1 seeded player in the world.
b. In 8 of her 13 Grand Slam titles she has beaten the #2 ranked player in the world.
c. In 2 of her 13 Grand Slam titles she has beaten the #3 ranked player in the world.
d. In 7 of her 13 Grand Slam titles she has beaten the #4 ranked player in the world.
e. In 8 of her 13 Grand Slam titles she has beaten at least two Top 4 ranked players in the world.
f. In 2 of her 13 Grand Slam titles she has beaten 3 of the Top 4 ranked players in the world.
Wherefore, the above statistics provided the greatest production at the Grand Slam level in the last 20 years on the WTA tour.

I´m sorry, there is no doubt that Serena is one of the greatest player in tennis history, but she´s just far FAR away from beeing one of the most talented

Greatness isn´t equal talent
