Have any players won a game by 4 consecutive aces/return winners?

Also referred to as "A Golden Game"

That means from 0-0 they hit 4 aces or return winners to win the game at love.

I think I remember hearing that Alexandra Stevenson did it in 2002? Not too sure.

Does anyone know??

I'm sure Serena's done it a few times

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

I'm almost CERTAIN she's done it a few times during that 6-3 6-2 Hingis DEMOLITION at the 2001 US Open

Stevenson is the only one I can remember for sure . But I don't think it was from the very start of the game. If I remember correctly, she was down 0-30 and then hit 4 consecutive aces to take the game.

Re: Have any players won a game by 4 consecutive aces/return winners?

oh ok aces....i know Serena hit 4 service winners in a row, but I guess that's different because I know Venus did it too againt Mauresmo @ the 2002 US Open SF to get out of that match.

Sprem almost did it against Maureen Drake at the 2004 Rogers Cup in Montreal! She led 6-1 5-2 and served I think three aces in a row to finish it. My fag bench could help me and confirm this
