but he has proven he can win slams , slamless no 1 was for players got who got no 1 without ever having a slam .This goes to Kim , Amelie , Caro , JJ , Safina etc
Thats why Lindsay Davenport never got criticism in 2005 despie not winning a slam that year
I'm not trying to say they are the same thing. If you want to argue semantics we can call it a 'slamless year #1' or something.
If it happens, it will be a notable occurrence. Just as it would have been if Soderling had beaten Nadal in the RG '10 final.
