Who was the first GS winner of your lifetime?

That is, who won the first major played after you were born?

Mine was Sue Barker!

1986 US Open
In the year of the all-Czech singles finals, Ivan Lendl defeats Miloslav Mecir for the men's crown and Martina Navratilova defeats Helena Sukova for the women's title. All four players in the singles finals where born in Czechoslovakia. Navratilova, however, is an American citizen and Lendl is a resident of Greenwich, Conn.

Chris Evert won the singles, while Navratilova/Shiver won the doubles...

I think I was conceived during a Margaret Court victory run at the US Champs but the first major winner after my birth was that scintillatingly exciting, raunchy sex kitten: Ann Jones

It was Ginny Wade. She was the very first Slam winner I can remember I’ll tell you why, because there’s a fascinating story as to why I can remember Ginny winning the Wimbledon title.
I was quite young at the time, and I hadn’t been very well, so my mother Ethel phoned for the doctor. When the doctor arrived the final had just begun. The doctor came in and asked “Is he breast fed or bottle fed?” “Breast fed” was the reply.
Okay then "Strip down to your waist," the doctor ordered.

As the doctor examined her breasts. He squeezed and pulled each one for a while and then he sucked hard on each nipple. Finally he remarked, "No wonder this child is suffering from malnutrition. You don't have any milk!"
"That's right," said the woman. "This is my sister's child. I’m his aunty Ida"

That’s how I remember it so well, because shortly after social services arrived and I was taken into welfare for a short period. I think it was due to the fact that my aunty Ida was a transsexual.

Thanks for the link, Drimal.

Some people will need to remember that the Australian Open was played twice in 1977 (Jan. and Dec.), and from 1978-1985 it was played in Dec. It was not played at all in 1986, and moved back to Jan. in 1987.
