Re: Question : Players who have won a grand slam without losing a set ?
Very interesting indeed thank you very much for the time to research this for all of us!
This interests me the most:
1972: Billie-Jean King
1983: Martina Navratilova
1988: Steffi Graf (The Golden Slam Year)
1997: Martina Hingis
2002: Serena Williams
2007: Justine Henin
Would Chris Evert be there if we included the non-Open Era? That looks like a list of the very best :P hehe!
