Venus only active player with the chance equaling Martina's record is now gone.

I guess she can still retire happy knowing she has the best record of her generation on grass, but wow talk about possibly doing the impossible.

I don't see Venus winning 4 straight Wimbledons.

We don't know. What if Venus went on a tear and won the next four Wimbledons? Or what if she plays at this level for a long time?

To win 4 Wimbledons from 30 onwards is hard but it's not impossible.

Martina won her last as a 33-year-old.

I'm really bummed that Venus lost because I know how much she likes Wimbledon and I so want her to get this record.

I'm just glad that Serena is getting her overall slam numbers up.

ahhh,everyone here knows about the 2012 which is a very realistic date. She had to win in order to tie martina.

When Martina won in 1990 everbody said that this is a record for eternity.

I still believe that but Steffi was quite close and Venus would be close to it - if her sister didn't beat her 3 times in the final! ;-)

Well it looked in danger (actually a lot of people thought it was going to be broken) when Graf had 7 at the age of 27..... So I dont know, maybe it will be the opposite with Venus and she'll end up winning her 10th at the age of 35.

Maybe she can equal Graf's record?
