Francesca Schiavone made QF of French Open 2001.A first in the open era.

Adriana Serra Zanetti made QF of Australian Open 2002.A first in the open era.

Raffaella Reggi and Sandra Cecchini won quite few titles...I cannot remember how many, I think Sandra won 8 and Raffaella 4 or 5. Gaudenzi won the ATP event in St Pollen 2001, and Sanguinetti won in Milan this year.

Sanguinetti won Milan and Delray Beach this year,and made QF at Wimbledon in 96 i guess.
in history: Pietrangeli won Roland Garros 2 times,and Panatta won RG once.
