That a player has WON a Grand Slam without defeating a single player in the top 10?...(.and no not the infamous Sue Barker win where not a SINLGE TOP 10 player even played the event.)

It will happen when Serena wins on Saturday.

The irony is that Francesca beat 4 of the top 11 to win RG.

But of course, no one will call it a cakewalk draw because it's Serena. ;)

Imagine the number of threads that will be made about this if it was Caro.

Li Na is ranked 9th. And even though Maria is in the teens, we all know she is clearly a top 5 opponent

You're pushing.... Maria has played better but she is not "top 5" yet.... anyways noones draw to the semi's was all that impressive.... Serena *IS* the number 1 seed so her draw is suppose to be easier, I'd say she had the 2nd toughest matches and opponents getting to the semis (vera having the hardest road) even with Jelena retiring.

I think it happened a few times at the Australian Open and the French Open in the 70s, but too lazy to research it in depth at the moment :)

It looks like Serena will have another record then - that's if she wins.
That's because of the top 10 players, only Serena (#1seed) and Kim (#8seed) lived up to their seeding.
And Kim was not in Serena's quarter of the draw.

The top 10 players in Serena's side of the draw were #9 Radwanska (#7seed), and #4 Wozniacki (#3 seed).
Both didn't live up to their seeding.

:lol: Nice...but what can u do? Serena did her job. Well it ain't like this will be Serena's first major, so the point is moot.

After her ' 99 u.s. open win, I think she already proved she can beat the top guns.

Li Na is ranked 12th, but she's one of the in form players going into Wimbledon.

And she also beat Sharapova - a former #1 and Wimbledon champion.

Yeah ofcourse she is top 5, she lost in the 4th round 6-7 4-6 , but Serena's serve was out of this world, if she played like that she wouldwin against evryone in the top 10 at this moment

So people now will have to laugh at Serena's road to GS title, not Ana's :sad:

No, that will be her rank next week. When the tournament started she was out of top 10.

Hmm, no she isn't. Not this year or since her comeback.

So in reality it would have been a bigger cake for Serena, if the players lived up to their ranking. :devil:
