Grand Slump owners

In Bud Collins's "History of tennis" there is information that Anna K. has lost singles in the first rounds of all Grand Slums during 2002. Do you know any other good player with the same "record"

Poor Anna. People only remember what she didn't achieve.

Let them eat cake.

Re: Grand Slump owners

there probably are a lot in the lowest ranled player

I Know that in Gagliardi has failed to win a MD match at the Us Open, having played the MD 10 times but that's a bit different

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

In '01 and '06. She narrowly escaped the same wrath in '02 when she made the 2R of the USO.

You're right she's achieved it twice, first in 2001 and then in 2006 and was on her way for her third time in 2007 but didn't play at the USO
