Re: Which was Serena's easiest road to a Slam title?
Every slam run has its own particular challenges. Also, the finalists have no control over the draw or the winners/losers in the draw. The Olympics was easy for Serena, we can say after the fact, even though the draw didn't suggest it would be. As for the Slams, I think none were easy, including 2012, because there was a lot of pressure, self- and publically induced, on Serena.
