It must be pretty difficult to do, since only 4 women come to my mind who have achieved the Hat-trick at Roland Garros.

Suzanne Lenglen

Hilde Sperling

Helen Wills Moody

Monica Seles

Anyone else I might be missing out? Anyone other than Monica in the Open era? I'm sure the history buffs would know the answer to this one. :)

Thanks in advance. :wavey:

Chris never done it? :eek: I'm surprise! I mean... she had the record on this tournament.
But I'm glad that Monica was on that list! Sure, she would get higher than that if ... :sad:
Get well soon Monic! :hearts:

I know Chris won back-to-back a couple of times, but never 3 in a row.

I was just wondering, because it seems really rare to have won 3 in a row at RG.

Chris stupidly did not play in 76, 77 and 78, at the time she clearly was the best claycourter in the world (and the best player, period), but the French Open did not then have the importance it fortunately has regained in the meantime.

She made back to back in 74-75, 79-80 and 85-86.
