Quickest Amount of Ten Top Ten Wins!

Just something to get you thinking.

Monica Seles - 19 tournaments*
Serena Williams - 21 tournaments**
Jennifer Capriati - 22 tournaments
Martina Hingis - 34 tournaments
Venus Williams - 44 tournaments
Maria Sharapova - 45 tournaments


*Monica Seles had 15 Top Ten wins after 21 tournaments!
**Serena Williams had 14 Top Ten wins after 22 tournaments!

Let them eat cake.

Seles THE legend

You are and will always be the greatest ever!! We miss you Monica!
Ferrero get back to the top soon where you belong!!!
Grand old man of Tennis Andre Agassi - All-time most adored & well-loved & respected player ~ we'll miss you
I look at people like Andre Agassi and Monica Seles, and of course what they did. I was always amazed at how Monica came back after so long and did so well. I try to keep that as an inspiration. He who doubts loses. (Serena Williams)

It's remarkable how good those players were at such a young age.

it depends a bit on how young they were when they went on tour? Jennifer, monica and Martina I would think played more at a younger age which makes their figures even better?

True. But, to me - if you are 15 and play one tournament, or you are 17 and play one tournament, at the end of the day, you still only played one tournaments and have only a tournament's worth experience.

Let them eat cake.

Well, it depends on your draw and what tournament you are playing. Top 10 seeds could be out before you can even play them.

These stats is meaningless!!

No, not really. If you look at some of their tenth Top 10 wins, you'll see that most of the players went on tears after that. Serena won the US Open. Hingis had a dominating 1997. Venus dominated.

Let them eat cake.
