But to be fair, any player who has multiple Grand Slam wins is bound to have some that are easier than others. I am sure if we dissected either Graf or Navratilova's slams wins we would find some pretty pathetic draws .
None.

Each slam title she won required conditioning, preparation, drive, motivation, athleticism, mental toughness, a small degree of luck, and defeating the opponent on the other side of the net.
A slam tournament is essentially a 2 week marathon.
To think otherwise would be to diminish ALL opponents that she's faced in those respective tournaments. Is that what we're doing here?
Come on now.

Seriously...
What's up with these Serena threads?

HEY MAX, CAN I BORROW YOUR HAMMER?!
