Exactly! This isn't necessarily a "record" one can shoot for. When you're an athlete in any professional sport being able to win when you're NOT firing on all cylinders is the epitome of a true champion. Serena has the tools in her game to be the best like the other women ranked in the top 10, but mentally Serena is on a different level compared to the rest of those players.

I liked the OP because it is pretty remarkable that she has done it soo many times and won a Major title at that. There are so many other past Grand Slam champions who have probably never saved a MP and go on to win a match let alone a Grand Slam title.

Re: Serena noches yet another RECORD!

Slam Winners Saving Match Point



This was the best list that I could locate.

This one is great because the data also includes the number of match points saved.

Jennifer Capriati had the most saves in a slam Final, and that was vs Martina Hingis. at the 2002 AO.

There's one for the ATP as well but who cares.

The obvious reply would be, "No, your IQ isn't nearing 100," but I won't do that to you this time.

Surely any fan of Serena would devote time and analytical capacity to going into the specifics, the pressures a player might have faced in a given slam, on a given day, that affected form and performance rather than chiding other fans, getting into disputes over the verbal definitions and worrying about what insecure Serena haters will say.




This is actually a very good point.


As opposed to the common thinking way that usually look at the scorelines as the ultimate indicator, the fashion that you win and the strength of the opponents are what counts. Surely a 5 set win over Federer in the Wimbly final is much more impressive than routing Juan Monaco in 3 sets. Sharapova at the AO 05 was young, fearless, full of energy to run all over the court and had very good serves that could counted as one of her main weapons,. She also came in as a favorite having the last 2 matches between them, so Serena was able to come back to win being down match points was an incredible achievement.


Serena victory at the AO 07 was extremely impressive as she took it in a stunning fashion while she was at the worst shape of her tennis career. That Slam prompted Pat Cash to concede an apology for doubting Serena and made her fans ( myself included) most satisfied.
