Question Who can win 3 consecutive titles at 3 different slams again?

Only one player has done it. Helen Wills Moody who won three consecutive titles at French, Wimbledon and US.

So who can win it again? I bet no one.

It is possible I suppose - but with high competetion and injuries it will be unlikely.

Maria Sharapova can certainly win Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open back to back, if not the French Open too!

If I understand Sam L rightly Seles would have done had she played (and won) the French and US Opens in 1993.

i dont think maria is up for it and i cant think of anyone else doing it....if serena was 100% fit then she can have a federer-like impact....maybe Clisjters could do it.

Im gonna throw this name out cuz she has surprised me soo much....Mary Pierce.

she beat players i thought she had no chance with.... so im jus gonna say.

I'm not young enough to know everything.

Well, I'm going to say it'll be someone under 25, and they will be an all-around player who competes well (top 5?) on each surface. The only people who jump to mind equally at home on grass and clay that jump to mind are Clijsters and Kuznetsova, two great performers on both surfaces. Beyond them...I don't know. And they are a long shot.

no one can do it in 2006. He means winning the french three years in a row; wimbledon three years in a row; us open three years in a row.

I dont think its possible to do that again. it's possible for one player to three peat at a major, but not three in a row for three years. theres too much depth.

no one in the near future... there's not been anyone so dominant...

the closest was probably Seles in 93...
