In searching for a stat on SERENA, I think that I came across an interesting stat for Capriati.

For women that may have appeared in three or more Grand Slams finals, Capriati may be the only one from that select group to have won every final that she has played.

I do not think that any man has performed that feat as well.
A very good stat for Capriati.

SERENA has the highest winning percentage for GS finalist with 6 or more appearances. :)
VENUS is the only player to lose in four straight GS finals. :(

Lindsay was 3 for 3 in her first Grand Slam finals. All straight set wins to boot.

Da Forehand - PLEASE, PLEASE, carefully read my post.
Capriati is the only player to have won all of the GS finals that she has played in to date, in more than three appearances.

There is a clear inference for a player being 100% for total GS finals.

Lindsay has lost some finals to date.

Tee, Martina Hingis lost her last 5 grand slam finals. And all of those losses took a tremendous toll on Martina's once strong psyche. I wonder if the same thing will happen to Venus.

I read your post very carefully, I wasn't trying to refute that. I was just stating a fact. Not trying to knock you or Cappy.

Martie - I did not check the men's records yet, but thanks for the info because I do belive that Guga, on of my male faves, has been in 3 GS finals and won all of them. Guga has also won them all in the same GS event.

Reading comp test failure for Queen Lindsas well:

Not so impressive when you look at how long it's been since she's won any kind of title.

I like Cappy too, when she's not being a biotch on court. I could careless what she does away from the court.

Petrova played a helluva match, I thought Cappy played well, she was just slightly outplayed. The serve def. made the diff.
