List of Grand Slam women's singles champions

This article details the list of women's singles Grand Slam tournaments tennis champions. Some major changes have taken place in history and have affected the number of titles that have been won by various players. These have included the opening of the French national championships to international players in 1925, the elimination of the challenge round in 1922, and the admission of professional players in 1968 (the start of the Open Era). Since then, 55 women have won at least one grand slam.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Marharet Court
Margaret Court has 24 singles majors, an all-time record. In 1970, Court became the first woman during the Open Era to win the singles Grand Slam.
Serena Williams is the winner of 23 Major singles titles – Open Era record.
Steffi Graf – winner of 22 Major singles titles, and the only person to win the Golden Slam (1988).
Helen Wills Moody – winner of 19 Major titles, the first woman to win more than 10 titles.

Chris Evert has won 18 Major titles, tied for the third most with Martina Navratilova in the Open Era.
Martina Navratilova has won 18 Major titles, tied for the third most with Chris Evert in the Open Era.

All of these tournaments have been listed based on the modern definition of a tennis major, rather than when they were officially recognized by the ILTF. The Australian, French Championships, and U.S. tournaments were officially recognized by the ILTF in 1924, though the French Championships were not played in 1924 because of the Olympics. The United States Lawn Tennis Association (USLTA) had several grievances with the ILTF and refused to join when it was formed in 1913.[9]

From 1913 to 1923 there were three official championships recognized by the ILTF:

During that same time period the USLTA recognized the U.S. National Championships and did not recognize any world championship.
