Historically they always seemed to do great in this slam in particular.

Navratilova 9 titles
Novotna 1 title
Mandlikova 2 finals
Kvitova 1 semifinal

Vaidisova, Peschkle and Sukova also did good. I don't know if Hantuchova counts.

And I'm not even counting doubles.

Hantuchova is Slovak... and she have been playing for SVK all the time (wtf?! Czechoslovakia came to the end in dec. 1992!)... and Navratilova won only 2 Wimbys for Czechoslovakia (1978, 1979) cos she became US citizen after 1981...
