Top 10 Player win streaks 2008 so far.

*edit* In view of the streaks posters have posted before, this has sort of become rank the top 10 player win streaks.

10th Best: Svetlana kuznetsova = 6 wins: Fed cup (2 matches), Tokyo Final (If not for Fed cup which is technically ITF I think, Kuzzy's longest and most recent win streak is her French Open Semi = 5 wins)

9th Best: Vera Zvonareva = 8 wins: Fed cup (I match), Guangzhou, Beijing Semi.

8th Best: Agnieska Radwanska= 9wins: Pattaya, Doha Semi.

7th Best: Ana Ivanovic = 9 wins: French Open – Wimbledon 3rd round

6th Best: Venus Williams = 10 wins: Wimbledon – Olympic quarter

5th Best: Elena Dementieva= 11 wins: Olympic Gold and US open Semi

4th Best: Jelena Jankovic = 12 wins: Beijing – Stuttgart – Moscow

3rd Best: Dinara Safina = 15 wins: LA – Montreal - Olympic final

2nd Best: Serena Williams 17 wins: Bangalore – Miami – Charletson - Berlin quarter final

1st Best: Maria Sharapova 18 wins: Australian Open – Doha – Fed cup (2 matches) – Indian wells semi-final.

Maria's streak was most impressive (BUT If not for Fed cup though, Serena has the longest streak). Bar the loss to Kuzzy, she went on to win Amelia Island too. Surprised Jelena's isn't longer, I thought winning 3 titles in a row would put her on top, but guess it's down to the events she won needing only 4 wins at a time.

-
Honourable mentions to Errani and Dokic amongst others for their impressive runs, though sadly they do NOT meet the criteria for a ranking in this list. But a round of applause to them please

Yeah, that was soooooo impressive by Jankovic. That win streak, you know, considering all the top players she defeated in route to those titles,
Thanks for those stats Marsh!

She played six matches against top ten players. It's not her fault other players lost early or couldn't be bothered to show up.

Q. So it went under or through the net?
JELENA JANKOVIC: I think through or underneath, and then somehow -- I have no idea...
