No, Goolagood did.

But she is the first unseeded and WC to win a Slam.
She is the first no-top ten to win the US Open.

She will have the greatest bump in rankings of the history

Considering that Kim is the first ever WILDCARD MUM to win a Slam, that is surely something to behold

Re: Clijsters first ever WC mum to win a Slam?

Clijsters is actually 2nd Wilde Card Player ever which won Grand Slam. First is Goran Ivanisevic at Wimbledon 2001. But on other hand Kim is first ever UNRANKED player which won some Grand Slam tournament since ranking existing!

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Clijsters first ever WC mum to win a Slam?

- She is the first player in history to win a slam without a ranking (WTA 9999)
- She is the first player in history to win a slam as a WC
- She is the first player in history with a top-20 debut-ranking (virtually #19)

(I copied my post from mine in another thread )
