With her win at the Aus. Open, Serena completes the "Big 7".
So, what is the "Big 7"? Here's the answer.
I consider these to be the "Big 7" titles:
1. Aus. Open
2. French Open
4. U.S. Open
5. WTA Championships (aka Virginia Slims/Chase/Sanex Championships)
7. Indian Wells (tier 1 status from 1997-present)
Olympics are not included because not all the top players play in it.
I'm too lazy to look up info on players before Steffi Graf's era so I won't include them.
So, who has won all of these important titles? We shall take a look.
These are ordered from most complete to least complete. The stats are the number of times a player has won each of them.
