Semifinal Grand Slam

Which players (active and retired) have reached the semifinals of all 4 majors?

(I'm going to update the second post with all of the names of players as they are added)

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

Re: Semfinal Grand Slam

I initially said active, but I think the list is small, so I'm going to add retired players too.

Re: Semfinal Grand Slam

Just a few names that come off the top of my head here......

Four Semis

Hana Mandlikova
Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario
Mary Joe Fernandez
Gabriela Sabatini
Jana Novotna
Martina Hingis
Conchita Martinez

Three Semis

Kimiko Date (active)
Helena Sukova
Zina Garrison
Pam Shriver

I'm sure there are quite a few others too particularly from the 70's.
