What is the record for most tourneys played in a year?

I ask because with all of the talk of Wozniacki overplaying this year, similar to Jankovic in prior years, I looked at the current rankings and Sandra Zahlavova is listed playing 38 tournaments. Out of curiosity, I noticed that she entered all 4 slams, but lost early enough to enter the ITF event playing the 2nd week of the slam. The only gap in her year is the mandatory Indian Wells/Miami.

38? Where did you see that? I'm looking at the WTA page and it shows 28. According to that, the most tourneys in this 52-week period is 34 by Patrcia Mayr.

Edit.- You're right. I looked at another player.

Zahlavova was at 41 once, if I remember correctly.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Is Zahlavova crazy? I mean no wonder when she won't be able to play one day due to injuries...

ATP doubles player James Cerretani played 45 or 46 tournaments last year, IIRC.

Re: What is the record for most tourneys played in a year?

Zahlavova always plays huge number of tournaments, but not that many matches. So far in 2009, she has played less matches in singles than Wozniacki, Pennetta, Wickmayer etc. Plus, she has played one doubles match in 2009.

Re: What is the record for most tourneys played in a year?

Zahlavova must spend more time travelling and packing unpacking moving into hotels than she does practising, which is why she bombs out early, and can then travel again. It's a vicious cycle.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Well if one comes off a 10 tournament 1R losing streak, and just start winning, could you blame them for tournament whoring?
