Your listed result for Martina N doesn't seem right. I might be mistaken, but didn't she play her final Grand Slam at Wimbledon, where she reached the final and then lost to Conchita? I could've sworn that was her very last Slam match, as she skipped the U.S. Open and then played her last pro match at the WTA Championships, losing to Gabriela in the 1st round.

From the top of the head, these are the ones I seem to remember:

Tracy Austin: 1R loss to Sabine Hack at the Aus. Open
Manuela Maleeva: SF loss to Sanchez-Vicario at the Aus. Open
Hana Mandlikova: 3R loss, U.S. Open (I'm not positive on this one)

I think mandlikova retired after wimbledon 90. I remember reading a little part about it in the tennismagazine that time, now I am wondering did a 4 time slam champion not deserve more space?

Dominique Van Roost Lost in the USO 2000 to Liliah Osterloh in Round 2 if I remember correctly.

Idd, Dominique won the last point of that match, but lost... :sad: 7-6 (7) 4-6 ret. ...second round...

Temesvári - RG'96 R2 lost to Huber 3-6 2-6 led in both sets with an early break. In the R1 she had beaten her previous doubles partner Shaun Stafford.
(But she played doubles at RG'97 with deSwardt, lost R1.)

What was Stafford last Slam match?

Austin's data is incorrect, twice.
That match against Hack was in the 2R 1-6 7-5 2-6 terrible it was, like a table tennis match...
But her last Slam match was at RG'94 vs. Marketa Kochta 0-6 1-6.

marion baroli :( beat arantxa at 02 us open 63 60 or so.

6-3 6-1 and Arantxa was leading 0-3 in the first set.
I couldn't help but think that she could have been in the same group as Alex Stevenson and Anna Kournikova for losing first round in all the grandslams last year if she had played Wimbledon too. :sad:
