Longest time gap between tour title wins?

Jelena Dokic just clocked in at 8 1/2 years since her last title(summer 2002) which is remarkable considering she never offically retired from the tour. I know Date Krumm's 2009 title is Soeul breaks that record,but Kimiko had left the tour entirely for 12 years,so that has a asterix next to it. Whats the record for longest time between title wins??

KDK. Barbara Rittner also had a huge wait between her two singles wins.

Re: Longest time gap between tour title wins?

I was wondering too.I know JCap had a 6,5 years gap between Sydney in 1993 and Strasbourg in 1999 but I can't think of a player being close of what Jelena and Kimiko did.

Re: Longest time gap between tour title wins?

I just looked it up and between her two title wins, Rittner had to wait 8 years and nine months, so essentially Dokic's equivalent.

Re: Longest time gap between tour title wins?

Great stories.

I remember Rittner; I couldn't stand her game, yet still had a strange soft spot for her.

Safarova Kvitova
Jankovic Venus

Re: Longest time gap between tour title wins?

Surely the honours must go to Hantuchova, she went five years between her first and second IWs. I say so becuase she was in the top ten or thereabouts the whole time, she was not out injured or struggling with personal issues of the likes of Dokic. I know she had that 'weighty' prob, but otherwise she was a decent enough player to not have won anything else in between.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Not as long but Tanasugarn went 5 and 1/2 years between her 1st and 2nd wins (2003 Hyderabad - 2008 s'Hertogenbosch)

Hantuchova IW 02 to 07 is also remarkable.

Re: Longest time gap between tour title wins?

Subtracting the years they were off the tour - Date Krumm = 1 year, Dokic = 4 years. Approximately

I think the fact that they were off the tour says even more, not less.

Hingis waited 4 1/2 years between the last title of her first career and the first title of her comeback.
