Okay . . . that's impressive. She has so far always won in the 1R of a major. Every time!!
It's impresive in start of her carrier. Later it's logical. Once somebody realized to have Serena in first round, girls used to get drunk and enjoy Slam cities instead of training.Okay . . . that's impressive. She has so far always won in the 1R of a major. Every time!!
Chris Evert has by far the best record: she never lost before the third round at majors, and reached at least the semi-finals in 52 of the 56 grand slams she played during her career.So far I haven't found any other player that has always won in the 1R of a major- not Graf, not Navratilova . . does anyone know of someone?
Do you know which 3 matches she lost? I think one was Sanchez Vicario at the French and one against Capriati at Wimbledon? Forgot the years.That only loss is to Venus.
Also another interesting statistic they pointed out was of Serena winning 187 out of 190 matches in Grandslam after winning the first set.
