More special French Open victory; 2012 or 2014?

Just curious to see your guys thoughts, for me it's 2014 because I really thought last year after her shoulder problems came back that she was done winning slams, and it was won on her sheer determination and will.

2012 completed the career slam. My vote goes to 2012 and nobody ever thought she could ever win on clay. By 2014, she was already a clay-great, if not clay-goat on tour.

2012. It was her first major in what felt like eons, completed the boxed set, and got her back to #1. This year was more dramatic for sure, but the only achievement at this point that would top the 2012 French for me would be another Wimbledon.

2012. Completed the Career Slam, got back to number 1, plus I thought that that FO was going to be The One. To explain-I always felt after the shoulder injury, Maria had one more Slam in her. We waited some time for it, but it was worth it. For her to win another FO, especially after last year's shoulder wobbles was simply an icing on the cake

2012, four years since her last title, career slam, and massive reward for her fighting back from what could have been a career-ending injury.

Most dramatic would be 2014 though, took years of my life FFS.

Re: More special French Open victory; 2012 or 2014?

But is it just me or did Maria seem happier when she won 2014 FO than 2012 FO?

She was like 'Wait! Is it for real?! I did it again after all those death matches" but if serious it was most difficult GS title for her and it felt more surreal than usual and that is way she couldn't believe in it first minutes after win.

Yeah, I was actually kind of dissapointed with her 2012 French Open reaction.

Re: More special French Open victory; 2012 or 2014?

More special was def 2012. First GS after her shoulder surgery, the title that made her ultimately a tennis legend. Brought her right back on the top where she belongs. Very satisfying win but not that euphoric, bc she was a big favorite going into RG and the final vs Errani was just a formality.

Euphoric was 2014 bc she her game was so up and down and she could have been easily crushed in the first rounds. Every round was so shaky and nothing was granted til the last point in the final. So, of course the joy was bigger here.

at this point of her career, the victory which more special than 2012 French Open is only 2004 Wimbledon
