Re: GS champions' worst losses in terms of games

"only completed matches counted" - was this taken into consideration to avoid the 1 game that Henin would have won against Mauresmo in AO 06?

no, this was taken into consideration because of common sense. Otherwise I had to include several losses by retirement with the scorelines like 0-3-ret., 1-4-ret. or 2-3-ret.

For Kuznetsova you wrote Hobart 2006, but she didn't play Hobart that year. She played Sydney where she lost in the SF to Henin and Aus. Open where she lost in the 4R to Davenport ;)

Joannette Kruger from RSA reached No.21 in 1998. Scored wins over the likes of Huber, Davenport, Tauziat, Coetzer, Sanchez-Vicario. At Oklahoma City she beat Serena in QF before losing to Venus in the final.
