GS finals that have finished with a winner

I can think of only four:
2001 AO - Capriati hits a backhand down the line serve return winner
1993 AO - Seles hits an inside out forehand serve return winner
1992 US Open - Seles hits a cross court forehand passing shot winner
1992 Wimbledon - Graf hits an ace
Any others?

All three of Jen's slams ended with a winner on match point!

2001 Aus - mentioned abovwe
2001 French - Inside out forehand just out of Clijsters reach
2002 Aus - return winner from Hingis' serve. Can't remember if it was forehand or backhand, I think it was a forehand

i thought capriati's winner at AO in 2001 was a down the line forehand in the middle of a rally.

There's been a lot of them.

And Gabby's forehand at '90 Open was out. Poor officiating.

A couple that I remember are 1989 Wimbledon and US Open Finals, Graf aces Navratilova in both.

1988 Wimbledon.. Graf.. not 1987.. in 87 she lost.

The 1988 final ends with a backhand crosscourt return of serve that clips the net.

1985 French when Evert beat Navratilova with that backhand down the line. I think Evert also beat Jausovec in the 83 French final the same way too. Mandlikova over Martina in the 85 US. Open final......I think it was a volley winner but cannot remember.
