Well an example that comes to mind is the 2001 YEC when Davenport basically totally schrewed up her leg on match point against Clijsters, but just managed to whack at the ball hard enough to win that point. If she played she would have likely retired and would have screwed up her leg, and therefore her career, even more. She then withdrew from the closest thing to a Grand Slam final, a Championships final, and gave Serena the walkover. So it has happened. It's not looked upon as really a highlight of Serena's career, but that's because she has achieved so much after that in the grand slams. If Kim got a walkover in a GS final, she might take alot of crap, especially if she never won another one after that.
