Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

Another thing missed off is winning a slam title and Miami, that sets your Serena's, Venus', Vika's, Steffi's, Martina's from you Pova's, Stosur's and Bartoli's.

Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

I think it's an accomplishment when you can win a slam and retain a waist.

Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

Faking an injury timeout then admitting it and not being fined is also up there.

Yes.

I'd take 2 hard-earned Australian Opens where I didn't cheat and showed off my beautiful waist over a career slam any day.

Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

Boxed Set Grand Slam, obviously. That is, winning the AO, FO, W, and USO in singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Second most impressive accomplishment would be winning the Bogota Slam, followed by winning the Baku slam.

No one has ever won both Baku AND Bogota - obviously the hardest to do

Yea i thought that wasnt well thought of.

I thought Navratilovas complete set of Singles/Doubles/Mix is an amazing feat.

No one on Mens Tour has done it so far. I think...

And weak competition. I guess that's included in luck.

What about watching your opponent break her ankle and rather than doing the human thing and rushing to see if she's ok carry on shadow playing and practicing your serves while her career crumbles before everyone's eyes, surely thats up there two?
