Yep, Goran Ivanišević... He was not just unseeded, he got the wildcard (he was in 3 Wimbledon finals before that one, first time in 1992.) and won it (has beaten Pat Rafter,
9/7 in 5th set, on his 4th
MP) - 4th time lucky!

Venus Williams, first (and only woman) to hit a 127 mph serve. (Zurich 1998)
