Re: Which would you rather have? Career Slam or 5 titles of the same slam?

I'd take 5 slams. Only having one on each surface is rather telling, and I really would be shocked if Maria didn't win another slam.
Finally someone who understands that Marbella is the only important thing in WTA. Career Grand Slam is a random excuse for wimps unless of course your first name is Serena

I believe winning a career grand slam puts her at a higher level in history books even though (so far) she's 'only' won 4 slams.
It's competent opinion.....
Davenport never won Marbella. So much for being "competent"
