(b) received bye in first round
(d) won one match by default.
Green = Played on Grass
Red = Played on Green clay
Blue = Played on Hardcourts

Quite an impressive list, the player who did it the most times (4) is Helen Wills. :worship: Also impressive is Chris Evert's 3 consecutive years without dropping a set.

Also worth noting that in 5 out last 7 years, the winner has won the title without dropping a set along the way. Will we see another one this year?

You should note the US Opens that were played on grass and clay.
