Re: Performance of top seed at Grand Slam singles tournaments

Margaret Smith Court has been seeded #1 in singles at Grand Slam tournaments more times than any other woman. She received the top seed 30 times, and went on to justify her seeding by winning the tournament 18 times.

Martina Hingis was seeded #1 in singles at 18 Grand Slam tournaments but won only 3 of them. Her 15 defeats as the top seed is the most ever by a woman.

Updated through 2012 Wimbledon.
