Players that haven't lost in 1st Round of a GS

From the current Top 100 there are 2 players that never lost in the 1st Round of a Grandslam.
Serena Williams is by far the top of the list. Only once she lost in the 2nd Round. It was her debut at a grandslam tournament. (AO'98)

It looks that Chris Evert has the ALL-Time record.
56 Grandslams and never lost in the first 2 Rounds.


After Wimbledon









After RG










After AO








Wimbledon 09





Wimbledon 2010



1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Mary was on the tour for ten years before she first lost in the opening round of a Slam, (Wimbledon 1998).

I don't think Seles lost in a first round until her last grand slam, where she lost to Petrova in the first round of the French

yes if it's possible,cuz many of outsiders have also played grand slams...of course i mostly meant the times they have played slams cuz obviously all of them have lost in early rounds...
