Who did better on their FIRST grand slam final???

So who do you think have done a good job playing the final (only the final performance) despite losing in their first ever grand slam final in the recent years?
*I only include non-slam winners, so don't ask why Ivanovic or Sharapova isn't the list or bla bla bla.

Bar Maria, the Russians are really horrible in slam finals.It looks like the only way for them to win is to face another Russian (Sveta x2, Myskina).

JJ 08, if that went 3rd set it would've been one of the best finals ever.

Jelena by far.

But Dinara did a pretty good job in 08 actually. She came back from 1-4 in the first set and really looked to be putting on a show until Ana stopped hitting errors and Dinara started

Re: Who did better on their FIRST grand slam final???

Jelena most definately.
but I think Bartoli did pretty well (in the first set) and remained pretty toe-to-toe with Venus until Venus just became too much

Anna Chakvetadze • Venus Williams
• Bartoli • Hantuchova • Schnyder • A.Radwanska • Cibulkova • Szavay • Cornet • S.Williams • Hsieh • Chuang • Medina Garrigues • A.Bondarenko •
