"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

For Grand Slams - Monica Seles. After each of her wins at a Slam, she never lost the next year. Nine times. A record that nobody can hold up to.

91, 92, 93 Australian - didn't play in 94
96 Australian - didn't play in 97
90, 91, 92 French - didn't play in 93
91, 92 US - Didn't play in 93.

Serena did a great job of defending both her 2002 French and 2003 Aussie open titles!
