Lightbulb Grand Slam winners since French Open 2002

2002 French Open: Serena Williams
2002 Wimbledon: Serena Williams
2002 US Open: Serena Williams
2003 Australian Open: Serena Williams
2003 French Open: Justine Henin-Hardenne
2003 Wimbledon: Serena Williams
2003 US Open: Justine Henin-Hardenne
2004 Australian Open: Justine Henin-Hardenne
2004 French Open: Anastacia Myskina
2004 Wimbledon: Maria Sharapova
2004 US Open: Svetlana Kuznetsova

2005 Australian Open: Serena Williams
2005 French Open: Justine Henin-Hardenne

That's two players sharing 10 out of the last 13 slams. The other three split between 3 players.

I don't want to say "I don't told you so" but I remember I said it'll be Serena-Justine show over the next few years. Barring health issues, of course. The Russian Revolution was very much overrated. Sharapova, though, is course here to stay. She's the Czarina after all.

Divas: Seles, Sharapova, Muguruza
Pas de Quatre:
Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppélia

Its a little scary when u look at it like that! They have really dominated.
I hope, for the health of the game, that serena gets fit and motivated, henin stays healthy and finds her best from.
They could be the new Graf/ seles, nav/ evert.

After all both are the two best fighters and mentally strongest players out there!

So i guess Justine is right, winning is not about luck, its how you play the big points and both are famous for winning and closing big points!

I don't think Serena is Justine's rival. Serena gets injured too much and doesn't take it seriously enough.

yeah, i though about it as well.... it is scary!

i hope Kim wins her first slam soon, looking at Myskina's name as a slam winner makes me sad... Kim could have won RG and US Open last year if she wasn't injured...

Sharapova
Azarenka Kerber
Zvonareva Kirilenko Pavlyuchenkova Sakkari Vaidisova Muguruza Goerges Wickmayer Kleybanova Kuznetsova Halep Shvedova Bencic Kanepi Svitolina Cirstea Tsurenko Vekic
Dementieva Clijsters Petrova

For regular tournamens you might be right, but when it´s major time...you know Serena will step it up and that is more than can be said from most top 10 players....

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
The truth:
Serena Williams: Greatest African-American tennisplayer in history
21 majors:6366

but its also interesting to note that three of justine's four slam wins the tournament did not include serena williams....and the one that did justine barely escaped defeat....
