ATP
1990 Dutch Open Francisco Clavet def Eduardo Masso 3-6 6-4 6-2 6-0. Masso was himself a qualifier.

1991 Benespa Open(now defunct) Christian Miniussi def Jaime Oncins 2-6 6-3 6-4.

2008 PBZ Zagreb Indoors Sergiy Stakhovsky def Ivan Ljubicic 7-5 6-4. Ljubicic was the #1 seed.

2009 Hall of Fame Tennis Championships Rajeev Ram def Sam Querrey 6-7 (5-7) 7-5 6-3. Sam was the #3 seed,

These are the only known cases on either tour of Lucky Losers winning.
