I was trying to look up when this has last happened but I can't think of any Slam where this has happened before :eek: Is this the first time or am I missing something?
Of course we have had two girls in a third round together a billion times, but three...

I thought that it happened at Wimbledon 2002, seeing Els Callens got through to the third round then, but apparently Clijsters lost in the second round to Likhovtseva that year. (Henin reached the semis)

Can't think of any either. Maybe somewhere in the nineties with Appelmans, Van Roost and Courtois?

Belgium:worship:
A year ago, they couldn't get anyone into the second round. What an improvement:hearts:
On the other hand, Greece hasn't even had 3 girls in the first round:tape:

Two Belgian girls in the Final would be great!
