How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"

I see so often on this board that some Slam winners are called Fluke winners (like Bartoli this year)

So the question is: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke". Is it enough to win second Slam to confirm legitimacy of joining Grand Slam winners' club?
Also, what are the reasons, criteria for calling Slam winner -"Fluke" winner.
Which Slam wins do you consider "Fluke" and why?

Re: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"

I don't think Francesca's win was a fluke as much as the others. Francesca BARELY lost to Na because she was too exhausted playing all of those LONG 3 set matches just to make it to the finals. Had not she had to play so hard, I do believe she would have had the energy to beat Na. Francesca is the only one who was able to make it back to the finals the following year.

None of the other players have been able to make it back to the finals to defend their title. Bartoli retired, so we don't know if she would have made it to the finals again, and I doubt that she would have.

The others are one slam flukers.

Re: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"

Bartoli perhaps

But that is mainly because she had the biggest cake draw ever and barely had to play any high ranked players.

All Slams are flukes, because *Baku is the real Slam

Nothing can be considered as a "fluke" in tennis, especially not Grand Slam title.

Why not? Let's say Sharapova breaks her leg after leading Errani 6-3 5-2 in the RG final, and she got there by better players' tank-jobs That would totally be a fluke

Re: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"

A win is a win. If you are the last bad bitch standing at the end of a Slam, you deserve that win. You can only beat what is in front of you, if others can't do that it is obviously their loss - not yours

Re: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"

Bartoli win wasn't fluke at all . She played the best and the most beautifull tennis at this Wimbledon . And her attitude
deserves to be studied by young players .

Re: How many Slams won by one player can be called "Fluke"

Anything that MUG Maria Sharapova does is fluke.

Her career slam is the biggest fluke and tennis and everyone knows it.

She's been exposed by the experts on this board.

She hasn't even defended a slam.

There are flukes but Bartoil's win was not one. Of course it was fortunate that Lisicki took out Williams but that doesn't make it a fluke.

Bartoli's Wimbledon was a fluke, since she would have lost to half of the players in the draw.
