The only player that I can think of is Manuela Maleeva Franiair.
She player her final tourny in Japan and won it beating Majoli in the final.
Any other player who finished her career with a tounament victory?

Helen Wills Moody won her last ever event-the 1938 Irish Open

And Alice Marble ended her amateur career unbeaten in over two years in 1940

Althea Gibson too-she won her last amateur event in Canada in 1959:)

Mo Connolly won her last event before a horrible horseriding accident ended her career in 1954 :sad:

Still played Wimbledon, and even San Diego after that I think

graf retired in her first match at San Diego to Amy Frazier.... i think Frazier was leading 2-1 at that stage.

Chris Evert kind of did... After losing to Zina G. at the U.S. Open, she teamed up w/ Martina N., Zina, and Pam S. to help the U.S. win the Fed Cup title. Chris was on fire, beating players like Novotna and Martinez easily in straight sets.
