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.
In the Open Era:
Evonne Goolagong (6) 1971-1976 *
Martina Hingis (6) 1997-2002
No player has reached five consecutive French Open finals in the Open Era.
Chris Evert (4) 1983-1986
Steffi Graf (4) 1987-1990
Martina Navratilova (9) 1982-1990
Chris Evert (5) 1978-1982
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.
