i'm not sure Monica made the final in her first GS? is that the best Grandslam debut or has anyone could win GS in their very first competition?

Monica's 1st GS was the '89 French. She lost in the semis to Steffi.

Evert made the semis at her 1st GS (71 US Open)
Navratilova made the QF of her 1st (73 French)
Sanchez made the QF of her 1st (87 French)

Goolagong (French 71), Wade Aus (72) and Barbara Jordan (Aus 79) won the first time they competed in that particular GS tournament.
