BTW, did you know that Serena is also just the third woman to have a career Grand Slam in singles and doubles (she joins Margaret Court and Martina Navratilova).


I didn't know this special but it brings to mind another

question. Who else in the history of Tennis has the

career " Golden Slam " in both singles and doubles.

In fact I think she has a Double " Golden Doubles Slam "

Does she stand alone on this

Tell me about it! As much as I respect and love Martina Navratilova, only Chris Evert and Hana Mandlikova challenged her seriously! During Sampras' reign at #1, you could have 12 other players with majors including Becker, Rafter, Edberg, Agassi, Chang, Courier, Lendl, Stich, McEnroe, Connors, Kuerten, and others! Martina had rivals early on from the past, but on the decline like King, Court, Wade, & Goologong! Things didn't start to get tough for her until Graf and Seles came around late in her career and even then she represented herself well! Her last major runs were in '91 USO taking out Maleeva, Sanchez-Vicario, and Graf before losing to Seles and of course '94 Wimbledon succumbing to Martinez in the finals; respectively!
