...for a tournament tier 2 or above?

I could be being really stupid and it could have happened last year or i could be on to something!

Which?

What year was it and what was her result there?

She won 2004 Miami as the #1 seed and I believe that's the only time since 2003.

Miami and Beijing -- both in 2004.
BUT she was the top-seed despite not being the highest ranked player in the draw (back then special rankings could be used for seeding purposes).
