Grand slam plus one?

Does anyone know whether a player has ever won 5 slams in a row? Does Serena have a chance to make history?

I apologise if this has already been discussed - I can't keep up with all the messages.

Steffi won all in 1988 and the Australian Open the next year. Martina Navratilova won the final three in 1983 and the first three in 1984, making six consecutive.

Steffi made the finals in 13 straight grand slams (winning 9 of them) so that is another accomplishment Serena can try.
