and very close to some other number one players...in '79 at the uso, she lost the first game to BJK and then won the next 12, 6-1 6-0 (though i guess she had that same score in 1972 also, but not 12 consecutive games), and close-calls with monica seles in '89 6-0 6-2 (though she wasnt yet number 1, so that doesnt count), and 6-1 6-1 against goolagong twice in 1975 (hilton head & amelia).
