Simply put-a list by month and day of women who won a grand slam.

Let's celebrate our Calendar Girls"

Still need to nail down the following Birth Dates:

Helen Homans (1906 United States winner. A quiet champion in a quiet year)
Simone Lafargue (1943 Tornoi de France winner)
Adine Masson (5 times French winner from 1897-1899 and again in 1902-1903. She was French-Canadian by birth)
Helene (or Yvonne) Prevost (1900 French winner. Her exact identity is still shrouded in mystery)
Aline Terry (1893 United States winner. This was the one and only slam she ever entered)

Re: Calendar Girls (Birthdays of Slam winners)

Added in all the slam winners from the 1980s.

If teams were decided by months the big winner so far would be December. Austin, Sanchez-Vicario, and Evert all have birthdays coming up soon.

Re: Calendar Girls (Birthdays of Slam winners)

You got me interested, Rollo.

I looked for each month's all time great and come with this:

January: Darlene Hard (Jan 6). By far the hardest month to find among the greats. But I know Kerber comes here as well since she shares my birthday (18).

February: Mandlikova (19). Second rarest month to find among the greats. Mandlikova is the only one born this month among the greats who won more than 2 slams.

March: Molla Mallory (6) comes first. Then Brough and Osborne (4 and 11). Also Bessie Moore (5), Hilde Sperling (26) and Jennifer Capriati (29).

April: Maria Sharapova (19) takes it. Followed with Daphné Akhurst (22) Angela Mortimer (21) and Juliette Atkinson (15).

May: third rarest month among the greats (above 2 slam winners at least). That's for Suzanne Lenglen (24).

June: a big month to become a champion. Steffi Graf owns it (14). Followed with Venus Williams (17), Justine Henin (1st), Doris Hart (20), Kim Clijsters (8), Shirley Fry (30), Lindsay Davenport (8, same as Kim), Mary Browne (3) and Joan Hartigan (6).

July: the one and only, Margaret Court (16). Also Evonne Goolagong (31), Virginia Wade (10) and Dorothy Round (13).

August: Helen Jacobs, Pauline Betz and Althea Gibson share it! All 5 slams winners. Jacobs and Betz also shared the same birthday, August 6th. Althea was born August 25th.

September: by far the biggest month to become an all-time great! Even intriguing to notice a streak of pairs: 22, 24, 26, 28 and 30 september. Serena Williams takes it indeed (26). Followed with, but not the least: Maureen Connolly (17), Dorothea Lambert Chambers (3), Martina Hingis (30), Alice Marble (28), Lottie Dod (24) and Charlotte Cooper (22), all 5 slams winners or more.

October: Helen Wills (6) takes it to Martina Navratilova (18)! 19 slams to 18 slams, excusez du peu. Maria Bueno (11) comes third, Ann Haydon Jones fourth (7).

November: Billie Jean King (22)! Then Blanche Bingley Hillyard (3), who also did much for womens tennis in the pioneering years! One hell of a constructive month.

December: Chris Evert (21). The Queen. Then Monica Seles (2), Nancye Wynne (2), Arantxa Sanchez (18), Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman (20).

Now we need old fashioned pictures!
