Can Venus make it 5 consecutive finals at Wimbledon?

I know it is still early, but I was just wondering whether you think Venus will get to her 5th straight Wimbledon final. And will she win it? It'll be a great achievement for her if she does!

And who are the other players in history who have made appeared in the final of the same GS for at least 5 years, I know Martina Hingis has at the Australian Open.

Yes, and she will win. Without injury, she has 3 of the last 4 titles

Usually she would have been a lock, but things are getting interesting...

Always bet on black!

I think she has a good chance as about 10 other women in the field. Recent results at this slam would indicate that she's almost a lock for a SF spot, at least.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

In the Open Era:

Australian Open
Evonne Goolagong (6) 1971-1976 *
Martina Hingis (6) 1997-2002

French Open
No player has reached five consecutive French Open finals in the Open Era.
Chris Evert (4) 1983-1986
Steffi Graf (4) 1987-1990

Wimbledon
Martina Navratilova (9) 1982-1990
Chris Evert (5) 1978-1982

US Open
Chris Evert (6) 1975-1980
Martina Navratilova (5) 1983-1987

* The Australian Open was played twice in 1977, once in January and again in December. Goolagong played and won the December 1977 Open, but she missed the January event due to pregnancy, so her appearance in the 1977 (D) final doesn't count as a seventh successive final.

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
