I guess this must be the most NID qualifier QF slam run ever. :lol:

'99 Wimbledon QF: Dokic vs Stevenson. Epic win for Stevenson.:spit:

Were any of the others coming back from injury/slump?

Kanepi is more likely a special case, is she not.

Gavaldon doing it twice, at the same slam, is kinda random.

Stevenson reached semifinal in Wimbledon 1999 as a qualifier.

Between 1981-1998 it happened 3 times.
Between 1999-2010 it happened 8 times.

Interesting...

Suarez Navarro reached QF at AO '09 at least, so it wasn't a complete fluke. :p
