Zvonareva was in slam finals, a YEC final, won IW and was a YE #2.
She's not awful. Its just that now it looks like Caro had a small window, so the Zvonareva SF and Li SF now look like big losses.
But in reality, Kim played very well in that USO final. Maybe the Li loss with matchpoint was closest to a slam win, because Kim never played the AO as well as the USO.
But every good player has some slam losses at least as bad as losing to Zvonareva.
The problem is that getting to a slam semi to face a nonslam winner seems far away now
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
