I know Monica Seles obviously made many. Just wanting to know, because I am fairly ignorant in this area. Have there been others that hit doublefisted on both sides to reach Grand Slam finals?

Haha nevermind, I feel like an idiot. If I had only searched around WTA World, I would have found in the Bodo thread in his opening paragraph.

I've been wracking my brain, trying to come up with a bigger upset than yesterday's barnburner, in which Marion Bartoli, a plump, cheerful, star-struck (if not by her WTA sisters) French lass took out the top seed at Wimbledon, Justine Henin. The closest I can come, ironically enough, featured the only other woman who reached even a Grand Slam quarerfinal using a two-fisted grip on both sides: Monica Seles. That match was a second-rounder, at Wimbledon in 1996; Seles was shocked by journeywoman Katarina Studenikova.
