Tournaments Won not dropping a Set

I was thinking about players who have won WTA tournaments without losing a single set - which is a great feat.

I remember Davenport won the US Open once without losing a set - and Maria Sharapova came close to equalling that this year.


US Open Sep 10 2006
1 M Sharapova(3) - M Krajicek..... 6-3 6-0
2 M Sharapova(3) - E Loit ..........6-0 6-1
3 M Sharapova(3) - E Likhovtseva(32) ....6-3 6-2
4 M Sharapova(3) - N Li(24) ............. 6-4 6-2
QF M Sharapova(3) - T Golovin(27) .....7-6(4) 7-6(0)
SF M Sharapova(3) - A Mauresmo(1) ....6-0 4-6 6-0
F M Sharapova(3) - J Henin-Hardenne(2).... 6-4 6-4


Checking Maria's stats, she has won three tournaments without a set loss this year

Linz Carpet Tier II Oct 29 2006
F Sharapova(1) - Nadia Petrova(2) ...... 7-5 6-2
SF Sharapova(1) - Patty Schnyder(3) ..... 7-5 7-5
QF Sharapova(1) - Ana Ivanovic(5) ...... 7-6(3) 7-5
2 Sharapova(1) - Eleni Daniilidou-Q ...... 7-5 6-1
1 Sharapova(1) ............. bye

San Diego Tier 1 Aug 6 2006
1 M Sharapova(2) bye
2 M Sharapova(2) - V Bardina-Q .....6-4 6-1
3 M Sharapova(2) - V Zvonareva .....6-4 6-4
QF M Sharapova(2) - M Pierce(6)...... 6-2 6-3
SF M Sharapova(2) - P Schnyder(5).... 7-5 6-4
F M Sharapova(2) - K Clijsters(1)..... 7-5 7-5

Indian Wells Tier 1 Mar 19 2006
1 M Sharapova(3) bye
2 M Sharapova(3) - J Jackson........ 6-4 6-3
3 M Sharapova(3) - L Raymond .......6-4 6-0
4 M Sharapova(3) - S Peer(21) ..........7-6(2) 6-1
QF M Sharapova(3) - A Groenefeld(7).... 6-1 6-3
SF M Sharapova(3) - M Hingis(19) .......6-3 6-3
F M Sharapova(3) - E Dementieva(4).... 6-1 6-2

Before that Maria won a lower Tier title in straight sets in 2004

Seoul Oct 3 2004
1 M Sharapova(1) - E Gagliardi 6-1 6-3
2 M Sharapova(1) - M Saeki-L 6-3 6-1
QF M Sharapova(1) - S Stosur(8) 6-2 6-1
SF M Sharapova(1) - A Kremer 6-0 6-2
F M Sharapova(1) - M Domachowska 6-1 6-1

Who else has been good at winning tournaments in straight sets?

Re: Tournaments Won not dropping a Set

Lindsay Davenport won all three of her slams in straight sets.

I think Venus Williams didn't lose more than 4 games per set in winning the US Open in 2001.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.
