If she was facing Danielle Collins there would have been no chance in hell that she would have been on Rod Laver. It was Kerber that got her there, not her. Also, the other women's matches that day that weren't on Rod Laver weren't that potentially interesting either. The only match that maybe might have been more interesting for the day for the Australian crowd was Kvitova against Bencic, but Bencic hadn't been playing all that well for about 3 years at that time and had yet to have that Dubai run that cemented her as a great player again.

Sloane and Venus and Su-Wei and Angie and Aryna and Donna and Danielle and Pavs and Alize and Margarita and Amanda and Elise and Kiki B and Xinyu and Anett and Kaia and Cici and Mandy and Petko and Lauren and Naomi and AKS and Vera and Shelby and Eugenie and Serena

Absolutely embarrassing!
The number of WC should be reduced for sure

Maybe - but not six of them. And I doubt the 4 slams do it for altruistic reasons.
