Its been 5 years when will it end?

Its been going on 5 years since a woman has won back to back grandslam titles. The last person to do it is no other than Justine Henin. When she won the 2003 USO and 2004 AO. Can Serena end that streak?

No, Serena can't end that streak. Venus probably will at Wimbledon and the United States Open this year. She plays better than just about everyone else at those events and I think she has the best chance of winning them back to back.

If JJ wins the AO, then it will end, cause I think she will win the FO
Serena def has a chance at it this year, esecially right now with the AO

No, Serena can't - 100% wrong. Yes she can. Whether she will, or whether it is particularly probable is another matter.

Venus has the best chance of winning the US Open and Wimbledon back to back, by virtue of being the best player at Wimbledon, but she is a bit of a roll of the dice when it comes to the second week of the US Open, every time she's ever played it, except 2001.

So, who knows really? It's possible anyway.

Re: Its been 5 years when will it end?

I like Serena's and Safina's chances. Serena USO-AO or even RG-Wimbledon and Safina with AO-RG.

Other than that, Venus has been the most consistent contender at Wimbledon-USO for the past decade.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
