We've done the Bagel Girls, what about the Teeth Skinners?

That is, those girls who've clung on by the skin of their teeth to win the most close matches?

I nominate Arantxa for queen of this field - she's played 27 final set tie breaks (or extended third sets, 8-6 or more) in her career and won 16 of them. On four occasions she's played two consecutive final set tie break matches.

Can anyone beat that?

Too lazy to look up the actual stats but Arantxa is #1 in this field. At a slightly lower level I would say Chanda Rubin also.
