Really? I can't really see this happen nowadays. That would mean one player dominating WTA competions in an incredible way.
The last player to do this in women's singles was Steffi Graf: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steffi_...eer_statistics
Although Serena Williams was close, she won 4 GS tournaments in a row, but not in the same calendar year (in 2002-2003)

There are a lot of promising Slovak juniors coming up! Number 1. should have already been completed by Daniela in the 2008 Australian Open Technically if you count mixed doubles Daniela has already completed 1. and 2.!!!

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!

I need not to do, that others already do this.

Despite everything, I hope that a girl from Slovakia with Romani background in TOP100 is.
Romani girls today have it doubly difficult in Slovakia.
Should it be in 100 years.

No problem, but it would be desirable if Slovak Roma girls would have positive role models, not only singers.
