Martina

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

Not to mention the T1 titles Hingis won in 2007, 2006, 2002 and the two she won in 1998.

Yeah I was quite surprised not to see Lindsay in the list but she usually only played Tokyo, IW, Miami, San Diego and Zurich in her prime time.

Re: 3+ Tier I tournaments won in one season

So If Safina wins this title she'll be among those big names. Wow. And then she'll have a great change to make it four, since the last Tier I of the year is at home. Go Dinara!.

Re: 3+ Tier I tournaments won in one season

prestigious list. Thanks Kworb

Safina's got a good shot at making this list.

For Serena, it all comes down to Moscow

Re: 3+ Tier I tournaments won in one season

It is strange Lindsay didn't get on the list.

Admitedly, she could rule out Charleston, Rome and Berlin right away... she also seemed to favour certain tier 2's over tier 1's in her usual schedule.

I can't be bothered to look, but I assume she got 2 on multiple occasions.
