Its been going on 5 years since a woman has won back to back grandslam titles. The last person to do it is no other than Justine Henin. When she won the 2003 USO and 2004 AO. Can Serena end that streak?

No, Serena can't end that streak. Venus probably will at Wimbledon and the United States Open this year. She plays better than just about everyone else at those events and I think she has the best chance of winning them back to back.

If JJ wins the AO, then it will end, cause I think she will win the FO
Serena def has a chance at it this year, esecially right now with the AO

No, Serena can't - 100% wrong. Yes she can. Whether she will, or whether it is particularly probable is another matter.
Venus has the best chance of winning the US Open and Wimbledon back to back, by virtue of being the best player at Wimbledon, but she is a bit of a roll of the dice when it comes to the second week of the US Open, every time she's ever played it, except 2001.
So, who knows really? It's possible anyway.

I like Serena's and Safina's chances. Serena USO-AO or even RG-Wimbledon and Safina with AO-RG.
Other than that, Venus has been the most consistent contender at Wimbledon-USO for the past decade.

^^^^^ Very true

i think it'll happen this year, and whoever wins the AO will be the player to do it IMO.... Either Serena Wins AO
Safina wins AO and FO
Venus wins AO, W, US
Dementieva wins AO and FO?
