Re: Lowest Ranked Slam Holder

Chris O'Neil, Barbara Jordan, Mima Jausovec, Virginia Ruzici all finished the season they won their lone GS title outside top-10. But Australian and French Opens they won were Mickey Mouse events without top-players competing.

As for "real" slams (when majority of top guns showed up to play) Serena Williams is the only winner who didn't finish the year in top-10 (#11 in 2005).
