Not even close to the record, which is held by Martina Navratilova, with a first slam win in 1973 and the last one during her last brief singles comeback, Wimbledon 2004 (aged 47y 8m - hard to see this record being broken) - 31 years apart.
Without that last win, she'd have shared the mark with both of them, having retired shortly after reaching her record 12th Wimbledon final in 1994.

Connors holds the OE mark for men, but Ken Roswell won slam matches from 1952 to 1978 (aged 44).
