I dont see any pattern to 1st time slam winners. Schiavone, Li, Stosur were all surprises.Only 2 majors have been won by all the players under 25. But until Serena won the last 2, 7 different slam winners in a row, 4 were 1st timers. So I never thought a slam final & 3 slam semis were a bad slam record for a 21 year old.I think the big problem is that she didnt believe the foundation of her consistent game was worth keeping.She's not a steady player anymore. Now its past 3 years since that one slam final, and it seems far far away
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
