What's the players(retired and active) achievement who won their last slam?

Anyone knows how they do after they won their last slam?
Momo has done barely nothing since her last big win in Wimbledon as far as I'm concerned.
Venus and Serena are still quite in decent if not the best form. Apparently their decent form are enough to put them above the rest.

How about other players?

Myskina won a slam then went on to retire
Justine won the USO got bored and retired
Venus wins wimbledon, retires mentally till her now famous shock defeats at the FO, gets fired up for the grass, wins the title and so the process begins all over again
Maria thinks she is allowed to win a slam every second year
Serena usually takes such a long break after a slam win she comes back all rusty again.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

It's still early to say. Perhaps FO 08 won't be her last slam.

Davenport went on to have 3 (count them 3!) years where she finished ranked number 1.
