Is this a first in a major, non slam event?

If Samantha loses today, not a power player will be in the semis at Indian Wells.
Will this be a first in a non-Slam major event? Can't seem to remember the last time we have seen counterpunchers dominate a Tier 1 event.

Yes

Not because a millonaire (Tiriac in Madrid , Ellison here in IW, the chineses in Beijing) puts a lot money , the tournament is important

There is something called tradition that makes a tournament big
