The Grand Slam champions who lost 6-0 6-0

Sofia Kenin left Rome by bicycle. Just as the 6-0 6-0 defeat is called in the tennis language. The culprit was Victoria Azarenka, champion in Cincinnati and finalist in the US Open) in the WTA Premier 5 in the Italian capital, but what leads us to reflection is the data: How many times did something like this happen with Grand Slam champions?

The names are illustrious, both for the losers and those who accomplished the feat, and you don’t have to look far back to find an example, as Jelena Ostapenko suffered such a defeat in 2018.
