13 Slams played since Jan. 2000 and Serena, Venus & Jen won 11 of them

I read that stat on some sports site this morning and I was like "whoa!". Well when certain players get on a roll it's hard to stop them. I wonder if we're ever gonna have it like 1999 and 1998 again where the 4 Grand Slams were won by 4 different ppl.

We may not see four different players sharing the slams for quite a while.
Looking for 3 players to share the slams is a lot more likely.

Things always come in cycles. Who knows.

This is a kind of a repeat of '90-AO '93 more or less. From '90 to AO '93 only 4 players won the combined 13 slams held during that time (Sabatini and Navratilova won 1 apiece, Graf won 3 and Seles swept the rest). Mark's right about the cycles. Clijsters will probably be the first new slam winner since Capriati 2 years ago. Not sure if it will happen this year or next though.

actually, 11 slams played since Wimbledon 2000 and the same 3 people have won all 11 of them. if you go back to US Open 1999, you get 13 of 14 won by 4 different people.

Lindsay Davenport - Anna Smashnova - Lisa Raymond - Sandrine Testud - Paola Suarez - Amelie Mauresmo - Virginia Ruano-Pascual - Nadia Petrova - Chanda Rubin - Cara Black - Tathiana Garbin - Anne Kremer - Monica Seles - Fabiola Zuluaga - Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo - Amanda Coetzer - Rita Grande - Meghann Shaughnessy - Magui Serna - Nathalie Dechy - Kim Clijsters - Elena Tatarkova - Maria Sharapova - Alicia Molik - Julia Vakulenko - Elena Likhovtseva - Anastasia Myskina - Emilie Loit
