That should be Martina Navratilova. I read it last week in the media guide. I think it spanned from USO some year to Australia. I have to check though.

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Who holds the record for most number of consecutive tournament wins in WTA?

But Only Lindsay does 4 tournaments win in 4 weeks!

She did it thrice in her career.

1998 California Summer Hardscourt Season sweep
2004 California Summer Hardcourt Season Sweep
2002 European Fall Indoor Season Sweep

All 4 weeks and 4 tournaments sweep.

Can't beat that!!!

Martina Navratilova won the triple crown in 1987, winning the USO singles, doubles, and mixed doubles titles. Three events in two weeks.

Beat that!
