Open Era female Grand Slam winners by country: has your country won a Slam?
Since the Open Era started 50 years ago there have been 48 different women who have claimed at least one Grand Slam title.
An incredible 200 Grand Slams have taken place since the new age started in 1968 with America dominating women’s tennis over the last half a century with notable exceptions.
Unsurprisingly it’s America who boast the majority of title winners with 12 champions to their name, seven more unique winners than Australia in second. There are also 11 countries who have just a solitary champion flying the flag, but can you name them?
Denmark is one of the nations with just one title and they are the latest addition to the list following Caroline Wozniacki’s success earlier this year at the Australian Open, while Jeļena Ostapenko won Latvia’s inaugural title at the 2017 French Open.
Should you cast your eye before the Open Era to the days of ‘Little Mo’, then America’s star of the 50s Maureen Connolly heads the list of consecutive titles alongside compatriot Martina Navratilova and Australian Margaret Court.
Court, of course, sits top of the all-time list with 24 Grand Slams while Serena Williams is just one behind.
Interestingly only five countries have seen a final contested by two of their nationals. While Australia displayed dominance through the 70s, four decades since 1978 have seen an American blitz disrupted only by the Belgian brilliance of Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters. Into the 21st century and a flurry of Williams-sister finals have been punctuated by all Russian affairs and the meeting of Italian pair Flavia Pennetta and Roberta Vinci at the 2015 US Open.
One woman who skews the statistics in Europe’s favour is Steffi Graf whose 22 titles collected is remarkably still more than the five-person haul taken by Australia. Li Na sits as Asia’s sole representative with two Grand Slam titles.
