Top 4 seeds into SF at Wimbledon

All top 4 seeds made the SF in women's doubles at Wimbledon

(Babos/Mladenovic, Krejcikova/Siniakova, Hsieh/Strycova and Dabrowski/Xu)

When is the last time that happened?

10 years ago. 2009 Wimbledon.

Re: Top 4 seeds into SF at Wimbledon

Oddly enough, I think all 4 women's singles seeds made the SFs that year as well. Lots of chalk.

Azarenka/Barty would have been better than Dabrowski/Xu though.

Doby/Xu actually played quite well in their last match I thought which is surprising given the pretty poor season so far.

If Babs could win it it would top off an incredible Wimbledon. But not sure if she has even reached a GS final before....

Re: Top 4 seeds into SF at Wimbledon

It's not a surprise tho... the field overall isn't that strong

I'd love for Hsieh to win Wimbledon again (I'm not that keen on her partner tho )

Not a surprise consider Collins... not a very good doubles player to be honest.

Strycova has never reached a final before in grand slam. Playing Babos/Mladenovic could be very difficult.

Re: Top 4 seeds into SF at Wimbledon

Apart from Wimbledon 2009, how often has that happened in the last 30 years in Slams, say?

Thank you!
