Re: GS champions' worst losses in terms of games

"only completed matches counted" - was this taken into consideration to avoid the 1 game that Henin would have won against Mauresmo in AO 06?

no, this was taken into consideration because of common sense. Otherwise I had to include several losses by retirement with the scorelines like 0-3-ret., 1-4-ret. or 2-3-ret.

Joannette Kruger from RSA reached No.21 in 1998. Scored wins over the likes of Huber, Davenport, Tauziat, Coetzer, Sanchez-Vicario. At Oklahoma City she beat Serena in QF before losing to Venus in the final.
