Has it ever happened before that a player has played all 4 Grand Slams during a year but has not played any WTA events during the same time period :confused:

if not, congrats Venus Williams :eek: after her 2010 European clay points drop off and before she plays Brussels, the only events she will have played in the last year are RG, Wimbledon, USO and AO :spit: :worship:

Wow. Really? :speakles:

Where does she rank if we count only her GS points?

She will be something about 32-34th in the ranking.

I can think of only one other example: Anna Smashnova. Her last four career events were Wimbledon 07, Roland Garros 07, The Australian Open 07 and The US Open 06.

So a great trivia question would be "what do Venus Williams and Anna Smashnova have in common?". That would stump a lot of people I suspect. :)

Yes, that were her last events, but she still had in ranking some more events - even one tournament's win I think.

True, but prior to the US Open 07, she would have had only the 4 slams in her ranking...same as Venus.

but did she remove herself from the rankings before USO 2007 :shrug:

in Venus' case, she has Beijing, Doha YEC, IW, Miami and Madrid in her rankings :tape:
