who is in second place on this record?
 
Evert-

First player male or female, to reach singles semi-final or better in each of first six Majors entered[b] First 6 RG, First 6 Wimb, First 6 US Open, First 6 Australian - stands alone

Now mind some of this happened after her first loss in '83 wimbledon. For example she did not get that 6th Aussie semi until '88 because she only had entered 2 Aussies by '83, but she had never lost until '88 so her string was continuous

So the question is who reached the semis in each of their first entries of 4 majors, who reached it twice in their first two entries in each major , 3 times etc. who gets even close male or female

I can't think of anyone else, male or female, who even did it once (i.e. reached the semis on their debut at all four slams).

I looked up Maureen Connolly but she didn't do it at the US.

It might be more likely if the surfaces were more homogenous, like today, or a great grass courter, who got lucky in their first RG, but you have to find someone who did not begin to play prematurely. No 14 year girls or 16 year old men who could be overpowered by an adult
