Re: Lucky Losers

wonder how much time it would take to compile a list of lucky losers that have made it into the MD and then had to play the same player they lost to in the qualies? AND how many times out of those instances that they avenged their qualies loss?! Hmmm....

Stakhovsky's win today got me curious, and I went to check what I thought was the lone instance of a LL winning a title on the WTA.

My source for Kay McDaniel winning a title as a LL was the Victory Records (Open Era) section of the tour's official media guide, from where it has found its way to blogs and lists of assorted oddities about the Tour.

But Kay McDaniel isn't featured on the full list of Open Era Tour Singles Champions later on in the same guide, and the list of Tournament Finals gives Mandlikova as the 1980 Atlanta champion, which is confirmed by the ITF website:

Kay McDaniel actually lost in the 1R of the 1980 Atlanta tournament:

Kay McDaniel's playing record at ITF features no tournament wins.

Thanks to the withdrawal of another María José...Mary Joe Fernández

And the reason she went that far is because play had already started and seeds stayed the same so she took Mary Joe's spot in the draw. Back then there were just 16 seeds in Grand Slams so she didn't have to play any big player

That got me thinking, but also I was reading an interview online and one of the coaches mentioned how the game is not over even when you lose a match as many LL have gone far in tournaments and some have even won. But I haven't been able to find out who has won any WTA tournies as a LL.
