Re: Question : Players who have won a grand slam without losing a set ?
 
In one out of four slams the winner doesn't lose a set. This makes winning a slam without losing a set no big deal.

There is a significant difference between on one hand the Australian Open and the US Open and on the other hand the French Open and Wimbledon. This comes as no surprise since the French Open and Wimbledon are played on so called "specialist" surfaces.

1988: Steffi Graf (The Golden Slam Year)
1997: Martina Hingis
2002: Serena Williams
2007: Justine Henin

Re: Question : Players who have won a grand slam without losing a set ?
 
Remarkable fact

Lindsey Davenport won all her grand slams without losing a set!

So did Chris O'Neil but she was a one slam wonder.

Re: Question : Players who have won a grand slam without losing a set ?
 
Very interesting indeed thank you very much for the time to research this for all of us!

This interests me the most:
1972: Billie-Jean King
1983: Martina Navratilova
1988: Steffi Graf (The Golden Slam Year)
1997: Martina Hingis
2002: Serena Williams
2007: Justine Henin

Would Chris Evert be there if we included the non-Open Era? That looks like a list of the very best :P hehe!
