Yeah pretty much. It would be like if Navratilova racked up a bunch of Australian Opens with Evert, Mandilikova, Austin earlier on, Graf later on, all not playing most of the time. Yet all the other top players like Shriver, Hanika, Jaeger, Jordan, Durie playing each year. It is pretty much the same kind of thing.
