Yes she is !!!! In 1980 was the lowest ranked player to win a Tier 1 tourney, I think place 40 or something.
This was great, wasn`t it?

I'm not sure about that. Eurosport commentator said there was a player (i don't remember her name) who won in Tokyo (Tier I), she was the lowest seed.

I'm really not sure

Thank you for great moments and inspiration!

I will watch this great match again tomorrow, maybe I will catch the name, but I am sure it will be written on some tennis-news, on TV or Internet.

Joao, last year, Jelena Dokic won her first title at the Italian Open, a tier I event but still not as big as IW.
And when I was watiching the match on ESPN (or ESPJen and ESPMen as they call it), Pam Shriver said that the lowest seeded player to ever win a tier I was the 14th seed (Didnt mention name) so I guess Daniela was the lowest seed to ever win a tournament!

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Dokic was the lowest to win Rome last year, but the lowest EVER to win a tourney, a Tier 1, was in 1980. I heard it on Eurosport, but can`t tell you exactly who.... and where...

I believe Serena was unseeded when she won Indian Wells in '99 -- although there were only 56 players and 16 seeds in the main draw at that time. In fact, my reading of the draw (she defeated #2 seed Davenport in the R32) says that she was indeed unseeded.

I don't know what her rank was at the time, however.
