Re: Performance of top seed at Grand Slam singles tournaments
Updated through 2012 Wimbledon.
Serena Williams was the second #6 seed to win Wimbledon, with Maria Bueno in 1959 being the other. Williams's victory was the 10th time that a #6 seed has won a Grand Slam singles title.
Maria Sharapova has never won a Grand Slam singles title as the top seed, in four attempts.
