Your listed result for Martina N doesn't seem right. I might be mistaken, but didn't she play her final Grand Slam at Wimbledon, where she reached the final and then lost to Conchita? I could've sworn that was her very last Slam match, as she skipped the U.S. Open and then played her last pro match at the WTA Championships, losing to Gabriela in the 1st round.

that nav match against sukova at the us open was in 93

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

From the top of the head, these are the ones I seem to remember:

Tracy Austin: 1R loss to Sabine Hack at the Aus. Open
Manuela Maleeva: SF loss to Sanchez-Vicario at the Aus. Open
Hana Mandlikova: 3R loss, U.S. Open (I'm not positive on this one)

I think mandlikova retired after wimbledon 90. I remember reading a little part about it in the tennismagazine that time, now I am wondering did a 4 time slam champion not deserve more space?
