Exclamation In 6 out of the last 8 years...

The winner of Wimbledon had also gone on to win the US Open.

1995 - Graf
1996 - Graf
1997 - Hingis
2000 - V.Williams
2001 - V.Williams
2002 - S.Williams

Even in 1998 and 1999, Davenport was the holder of both US Open and Wimbledon crowns at one point.

So what's going to stop history from repeating itself this year?

Nothing much. Write her name on the trophy now.

Light of the Seven: Himalayas, Gobi, Baikal, Taiga, Steppe, Reef, Aurora

Yes, and 4 of the 5 years before that she didn't. There is a correlation (fast courts) but not a huge one.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

If Venus is healthy, she'll have something to say about that. If Venus is still hurting, give the title and trophy to Serena
