Has an unseeded female player ever won a slam in the Open Era?

Has an unseeded female player ever won a slam in the Open Era?

Going into the Australian Open 2007, I am thinking of the Williams sisters and just wondering? Is this another record they might break?

If anyone WAS to break this record, it'd be them.

Really, don't even look at me...

WELL - if anyone is to break it at this Australian Open it would be them. Two future hall-of-famers, multiple Grand Slam titleists, former world #1's both coming in ranked lower than #32 , of COURSE they are the most likely, we all know that but REALLY - has it ever happend before?
