Top Seeds in a Grand Slam Final

The top seeds on both the men’s and women’s singles made it to the finals this year. The first question that came to me when I first realized this after the men’s semi-finals between Nadal and Richard Gasquet – when was the last time this had happened? Turns out it was the 2000 Australian Open. Andre Agassi def. Russia Yevgeny Kafelnikov, 3–6, 6–3, 6–2, 6–4 in the men’s and in the women’s it was Lindsay Davenport over Martina Hingis, 6–1, 7–5.
