Women who have won multiple slams

Leads
---------
Pierce 5-1
Seles 4-1
Mauresmo 10-2
Davenport 10-4
Capriati 10-7
Sharapova 5-2
Hingis 7-6
Henin 7-6

Lags
------
Sanchez 3-4

Tied
------
with Graf (1-1)
with Venus (9-9)

We can ignore than Seles and Sanchez head to head. Sanchez won 3 of
the matches before 1999 and she wasnt good post 1998. And Seles wasnt
playing that well post 1998.

But if you look at the rest. Serena has had trouble vs bigger
champions like Graf, Hingis, Henin and Venus. She also had a quite a
big discomfort with Capriati for some reason. Sharapova and Serena
were tied 2-2 until 2006. But Sharapova has suffered three defeats
since then, two of them very humiliating.

I highly doubt Sanchez was at peak in 1998. Seles and Sanchez made the
finals that year, but Steffi Graf was MIA. I doubt any of them would
have won it that year, if Steffi played.

And Venus beating Sanchez has nothing with do with Serena's matchup
with Sanchez,

Venus beat Sanchez at the Italian Open in 1998, when ASV was in
FO-winning form, so no doubt Serena would have mopped the floor with her
at-peak.
