Four of the most dominant tennis players of the last 30 years were Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, and Pete Sampras. They're the only players to have won more than ten Slams in that time period and here's the similarity:

Evert: First Slam - French Open 1974
Last Slam - French Open 1986 (same Slam as the first, 12 years later)

Navratilova: First Slam - Wimbledon 1978
Last Slam - Wimbledon 1990 (same Slam as the first, 12 years later)

Graf: First Slam - French Open 1987
Last Slam - French Open 1999 (same Slam as the first, 12 years later)

Sampras: First Slam - US Open 1990
Last Slam - US Open 2002 (same Slam as the first, 12 years later)

Strange coincidence, isn't it? :)

Great, so that means Serena's got another 7 years of winning slams and her last is going to be the US Open 2012. Cool!
