It´s happened only four times in history and only three times legitly. ASV did it, Steffi did it at ´99 Sidney, Hingis did it at ´01 Oz open and Kim " did" it at last years championships. In fact Hingis is the only one who has beaten both of them at a slam.

I think Venus struggled more with Hingis than Serena did. Serena only once lost to Hingis at a slam, whereas Hingis usually owned Venus at the slams. Serena is a big-match player and she knows where and when to raise her level. Plus I´ve seen Serena totally and positively crush Hingis numerous times. Who can forget ´00 Montreal final where Serena won the first NINE games before getting injured?! Or the ´01 U.S. open semi´s?!

Good point, forehand. Lindsay and Hingis were no.1 and no.2 for so long but only two slam finals?! Contrast this to the Williams 6 slam finals already! In fact they play so rarely against each other, but they already have 8 finals ! Imagine if they would play more.....there would only be Williams-Williams finals!

Kim and Justine usually play the same tournaments, but how many Justine-kim finals have there been?! The Williams sisters don´t play that many tournaments together but there have been already 8 all Williams finals. Including 6 of the last 8 slams!
