I was born in 1984 when this woman named Martina Navratilova ruled the world. I don`t know much about her, was she ever any good?She must have quit tennis a long time ago.
Well that year she won the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
And the Australian Open was won by Chris Evert. Was this a guy? What kind of a name for a girl is Chris?

No.

1976:

Australian Open: EVONNE GOOLAGONG CAWLEY def. RENATA TOMANOVA
French Open: SUE BARKER def. RENATA TOMANOVA
Wimbledon: CHRIS EVERT def. EVONNE GOOLAGONG CAWLEY
U.S. Open: CHRIS EVERT def. EVONNE GOOLAGONG CAWLEY

Pretty fun stuff. I've never even heard of Renata Tomanova, I guess it's true what they say about only remembering the winners of slams.

I was born in 1918 (shut up, Joan, it was NOT 1917) and there was no Australian Open for women, I believe at that point, and the French and Wimbledon there was no competition due to WW1. So, Molla Mallory (U.S. Open) was the only slam winner my year!
