Re: "Iron-Women" of the WTA Tour

Whilst Amy Frazier has played for a long time, she never really plays in many events.

Re: "Iron-Women" of the WTA Tour

Most matches played is more important, as it means consistently going deep into the draws.

Re: "Iron-Women" of the WTA Tour

Wow, that's a lot... 25 tournaments a year for these ladies :shocked:

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

which is exactly what these 3 players have done, on average, more consistently than anyone else on the tour in the last decade. Averaging 25 WTA/GS events per year (qualifying, ITF challengers, and Fedcup NOT included!) for 10 years is phenomenal.

And, to your point, who has played more WTA matches than these 3 in the past 10 years? I doubt anyone has - *maybe* Davenport, but i don't think so.

Amy doesn't play a really heavy schedule, also her ranking hasn't always stayed high enough to play only WTA events.

I didn't realize Likhovtseva is that old.

not "very soon". Ten years is a long time in tennis. Many players are able to play a heavy schedule for 3-4 years. But to do it for a decade is much more rare. I doubt Bartoli and ALG can keep that pace up.
