Open era slam tally

1) Graf 22
2) Evert 18
2) Navi 18
4) Court 11
5) Seles 9
6) King 8
7) Goolagong 7
7) S.Williams 7
9) Hingis 5
10) Sanchez 4
10) V. Williams 4
10) Mandlikova 4
10) Henin 4

How far will Enna go?
King and Seles are within reach, IMO!

However, who would have thought that Hingis won her last slam as a 18-year-old at AO 99 or V. Williams her last one as a 21-year-old at USO 01?

I think it's possible
Oh I like t he way Court's tally has been reduced
By the way, I notice you get a lot of bashing on the site for your love for Steffi. I enjoy your posts. Keep it up. I fSeles fans can throw their words around for Monica then so can Steffi fans

"Open era" = era of PROFESSIONAL tennis (since 1968).

Because until then there was no prize money.

surprised to see Serena so high....considering she isn´t even top 10 of peak-players and all...

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

You really think without BJK there would be no professional tennis for women today?

Has the BJK propaganda train traveled that far in the U.S.?

Amazing isn´t it Cali? You wouldn´t believe all the things being said on this board. There´s was even talk that had Serena played in the Graf, Novotna, Sabatini era that Serena wouldn´t have even cracked the top 10, much less win majors.

Always bet on black!
