Re: TOP10-their first WC's Interesting stuff!

Thanks for the interesting information! Henin and Mauresmo did really well! But I wonder how old Hingis was, she started everything so early. 1994, she was just 14?

Re: TOP10-their first WC's Interesting stuff!

Yeah I think Hingis and Serena were under 16 when they had their first WCs.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Serena.[21]
