Which would you rather have? Career Slam or 5 titles of the same slam?
 
A career slam vs 5 titles at say, Wimbledon or US open, etc

:oh:

5 titles of the same slam.

5 titles > 4 titles, at the end of the day. :shrug:

No Sharapova is not greater than Venus if that's what you're implying.

In either case you're helluva successful, so who cares?

5 titles - especially if it's Wimbledon :)

Depends on if it's 5 Wimbledon's or 5 of the other ones. If not, the career slam.

Venus has 7 slams, so this hypothetical situation is clearly not about her.

Career Slam. It shows you were better on all surfaces :shrug:

However winning 5 of the same slam, would mean a player was good consistently, even if only at one slam.

She has 5 Wimbys, but no Career Slam.

Yeah but she has two other slams. My hypothetical question is about a player who only has 5 slams total.

What player(s) are you referring to then?

I can't really think of anyone who has 5 GSs of the same title.

It would be cool to win 5 Wimbledon or French Open because it would mean you're the best, at least on that surface.

You didn't say that in the OP. :p Either way, it's a problem that 99,9% of players would love to have.
