The only paring to complete the "Grand Slam" is the team of Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver in 1984, and their eight consecutive slam win streak still stands as the all-time record. Maria Bueno in 1960 and Martina Hingis in 1998 won the yearly grand slam with various partners in the slams. Four players have completed a career doubles golden-slam by winning a gold medal at the olympics and all four Majors during their respective careers: Venus Williams and Serena Williams paired together, and individually Pam Shriver and Gigi Fernández.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list, grand, slam, women, doubles and/or champions:

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    We saw the machinery where murderers are now executed. Seven have been executed. The plan is better than the old one. It is quietly done. Only a few, at the most about thirty or forty, can witness [an execution]. It excites nobody outside of the list permitted to attend. I think the time for capital punishment has passed. I would abolish it. But while it lasts this is the best mode.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The evolution of humans can not only be seen as the grand total of their wars, it is also defined by the evolution of the human mind and the development of the human consciousness.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    It’s not a slam at you when people are rude—it’s a slam at the people they’ve met before.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    Can you not see that women could do and would do a hundred times more for the slave, if she were not fettered?
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)

    Despots play their part in the works of thinkers. Fettered words are terrible words. The writer doubles and trebles the power of his writing when a ruler imposes silence on the people. Something emerges from that enforced silence, a mysterious fullness which filters through and becomes steely in the thought. Repression in history leads to conciseness in the historian, and the rocklike hardness of much celebrated prose is due to the tempering of the tyrant.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of “the rat race” is not yet final.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
