    It didn't occur in the same calendar year, but the last time there were 4 new winners in a row at a slam are as follows:

    2001 Wimbledon - Ivanisevic
    2001 US Open - Hewitt
    2002 Aussie - Johansson
    2002 French - Costa

    For the women, it is very recently:

    2011 French - Li
    2011 Wimbledon - Kvitova
    2011 US Open - Stosur
    2012 Aussie - Azarenka

    There was an even longer streak in the 90s:

    1995 Muster
    1996 Kafelnikov
    1997 Kuerten
    1998 Moya
    1999 Agassi

    Before Kuerten regained the title in 2000.

    The most recent at Wimbledon:

    1972 Smith
    1973 Kodes
    1974 Connors
    1975 Ashe
    1976 Borg

    Surprisingly, four new winners in a row has not happened at the Australian in the Open Era.

    2001 was a great year...they actually showed these matches on Canadian TV. I willl never forget the Ivanisevic wins over Henman and finally Rafter. Classic matches of their time. Such drama...
