Serena has successfully defended 3 majors......

Wimbledon 2002-2003
Australian Open 2009-2010
Wimbledon 2009-2010.

What other grand slam champions have successfully defended their major titles? Who has the record?

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Graf's:

AO 1988-90.

RG 1987-88, 95-96.

Wimbledon 1988-89, 91-93, 95-96.

USO 1988-89, 95-96.


So, like a bunch.

Re: Serena has successfully defended 3 majors......

Monica Seles has never lost at a GS where she was defending champ.

AO: 1991-1993
RG: 1990-1992
US: 1991-1992

She either successfully defended or missed the ones as defending champion due to the stabbing (except AO '96; she missed AO '97 due to injury)

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Re: Serena has successfully defended 3 majors......

I'm not sure, I just googled her results because I figured she's defended a bunch. I'd say yeah, unless Court has it or Navratilova maybe?

It's probably between Graf, Court & Navratilova. Martina won 6 Wimbledons in a row and Court won 6 AOs in a row, so that's 5 successful defenses right there. Steffi has a total of 10.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.
