Dorothea Douglass Chambers in 1914. Douglass Chambers beat Ethel Thomson Larcombe 7-5, 6-4 that year at Wimbledon for her second consecutive win. It was far easier to win back-to-back titles then - the defending champion merely had to play in the final after a challenger tournament was held!!

Margaret Court (AUS) - 1973 Australian, French and US Opens - In 1970, the Australian, known as Margaret Smith before she married, became the first woman during the Open era and the second woman ever to win all four Grand Slam singles titles in the same calendar year. The next year, Court lost the Wimbledon singles final to Evonne Goolagong while pregnant with her first child, Daniel, who was born in March 1972. The following year she went on to win the Australian, French and US Opens. She retired in 1977
