Players who won GS titles in juniors and seniors

There are very few players who won GSs both as juniors and seniors. The last one who did it is Justine Henin-Hardenne, and before her Martina, Lindsay (I think she won US as junior, no?) and Jennifer. Am I missing someone here?
On the other hand, 95% of junior GS winners never come close to doing the same in seniors. Musgrave, Tu, Black, Razzano, Widjaja, Kapros, Salerni, Srebotnik and such can only dream of repeating their junior success. So, do you think any of previous junior winners stand a chance? Mauresmo IMO is capable. Maybe Petrova, if absolutely everything goes right? Lina and Iroda, very unlikely. Will Vera Douchevina ever be close?

You forgot about Gabriela Sabatini, Hana Mandlikova, Mima Jausovec, Evonne Goolagong & Chris O'Neil

Among those active players with a chance I'd say next to Petrova & Mauresmo players like Rubin, Maleeva or Dokic although their chances are quite limited I believe

I only wanted to include active players (OK, Hingis is retired, but that's special case).

Anyone knows anything about Katerina Basternakova? Apparently she lost AO '99 juniors final to Razzano, but I haven't heard else about her.
