And at the Maria beat big players during clay season. Beating them during the clay season and at Roland Garros are two COMPLETELY different obstacles.
You're trying SO hard, it's almost moving me.

It will soon be wide open for the men as Federer is getting old, Nadal is in serious trouble and Djokovic/Murray can't keep up such defensive style for too many years.

I fully expect Serena, Vika, Maria and Petra (if she can get it right) to dominate the next few years.
And let's not forget Aga.

So you still can't get over that Vesnina match, could you?

Or the fact that Serena has cemented her place as the greatest grass-court player of her generation, again snatching what remains of Venus' only wig.

I didnt mention Ivanovic since she is something in the middle, not an stellar win like Serena or Henin, and not a mug like Errani. If you are a 4 slam winner beating Serena and Henin in 2 of your slam finals is mighty impressive, as a 4 slam winner isnt typically a dominant player (and as we well know Maria never even briefly was a dominant player) so those are huge wins for someone with only 4 slams to win 2 of your 4 slam finals with. On average Ana isnt a super tough opponent, but isnt that easy an opponent either. I mean Ana is as good as a number of Serena Williams final opponents over her career.

Wow, TOP 4 ranked ATP players have won a GS singles title each this year

TOP 4 WTA have also won at least a GS title this year except Aga

well the old saying goes "you can only beat whoever is in front of you". the top players fell in RG, and maria didn't, period. it's nothing wrong to have a weak draw or whatsoever, stringing 7 wins in a row is always impressive especially in a slam. just saying that no one deserves to rag on both maria's RG draw and serenka's USO draw or any slam winner's draw, becuase they managed to do what other top players couldn't do during their respective slams : win 7 matches in a row, regardless of whoever the opponents are.
