What's with Czechs and Wimbledon?

Historically they always seemed to do great in this slam in particular.

Navratilova 9 titles
Novotna 1 title
Mandlikova 2 finals
Kvitova 1 semifinal

Vaidisova, Peschkle and Sukova also did good. I don't know if Hantuchova counts.

And I'm not even counting doubles.

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

Re: What's with Czechs and Wimbledon?

Hantuchova is Slovak... and she have been playing for SVK all the time (wtf?! Czechoslovakia came to the end in dec. 1992!)... and Navratilova won only 2 Wimbys for Czechoslovakia (1978, 1979) cos she became US citizen after 1981...
