Which tennis players won their first tournament on debut?

Which players won the first professional tournament on their debut? There are six womens which did it, but I know only about Justine Henin (Antwerp, 1999) and Angelique Widjaja (Bali, 2002). Do you know the other?

I guess it would rather be 1st tournament or 1st WTA performance,cause 99% of players start out at ITF.

Katarina Srebotnik won her 1st wta tournament in Lisbon in 1999, with Henin, Widjaja and Lucic that makes four, I can't remember the 2 others butI'm sure there is a young American girl in the 80's (Jaeger, Rinaldi or Horvath), have to check it!

But Hingis and Vaidisova won their first ITF Event I think!

Rest in Peace Bally!
