Lightbulb Martina N. did it, Serena could do it.

Martina Navratilova is the only player I know of who managed to win a singles slam title in three different decades (70s, 80s, 90s). Since Serena is the only active singles slam winner of the 90s ('99 US Open winner), she could very well join Martina N. in this exclusive club.

Does anyone know if Martina is the only player to have accomplished this so far?

Re: Martina N. did it, Serena could do it.

I'd say it's quite likely Serena will do it. In fact, as she won the last Grand Slam of the 90's she may win the first of the 10's.

If only Steffi waited another year, she could have done it.

Re: Martina N. did it, Serena could do it.

If you win your first slam in 99 it's alot easier to do then if you won your first slam in 2001. I still think Chris Evert record of 13 consecutive years with at least 1 slam is incredible and probably will stand the test of time.

Good point, but '99 is still part of the nineties, so it counts. And there's only been one other player to do it, so it can't be that easy.

Chrissie
13 consecutive years with at least 1 is a great stat.

I.M.S.

Re: Martina N. did it, Serena could do it.

Alright, here's my Bud Collins moment:

Blanche Bingley won Wimbledon titles in the 1880s, 1890s, and 1900s ('86, '89, '94, '97' '99, and '00)

Nancye Wynne Bolton won Australian titles in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s ('37, '40, '46, '47, '48, and '51)

Also, in addition to Serena, Mary Pierce could still achieve this feat ('95 Australian, '00 French)

Well, if she continues with this kind of motivation on Slams, she'll most likely do it.

Jelena Janković & Ana Ivanović
Bojana Jovanovski

Jelena Dokić
Kim Clijsters & Serena Williams

Davenport can win the '10 USO and complete this, too.
