27 Mandlikova

25 Mauresmo
24 Sharapova
24 Novotna
21 Shriver

* Titles pre-open era not included.
Bold - active players

Active players:

43 Venus
41 Clijsters
39 Serena
24 Sharapova
18 Wozniacki
13 Kutznetsova
12 Safina
12 Jankovic
12 Zvonareva
11 Garrigues
10 Ivanovic
10 Petrova
9 Pennetta
8 Chakvetadze
8 Date Krumm
7 Azarenka

It will be interesting to see whether Venus, Kim or Serena ends up with the most titles when retired!

Players u/25:

24 Sharapova 19-4-1987
18 Wozniacki 11-7-1990
10 Ivanovic 6-11-1987
8 Chakvetadze 5-3-1987
7 Azarenka 31-7-1989
5 Kvitova 8-3-1990
5 A. Radwanska 6-3-1989
5 Szavay 29-12-1988
5 Peer 1-5-1987
5 Kirilenko 25-1-1987
4 Rezai 14-3-1987
4 Safarova 4-2-1987
3 Pavlyuchenkova 3-7-1991
3 Wickmayer 20-10-1989
3 Lisicki 22-09-1989
3 Krajicek 9-1-1989

The young ones. I considered to exclude those born in 87, somehow Sharapova and Ivanovic doesn't seem like the 'next generation'...

Edited: Things have happened since April. Serena has come back winning again. Patty has retired. Dinara has turned 25.

Re: Most career titles

I still find it incredible that Martina and Chris both have so many titles, especially since they played a large part of their careers in the same era.

Re: Most career titles

Thank you OP. Could Venus win one more title to earn the 10th place?

To be fair, she should have won only Cincinnati.

Yes amazing! There were a lot of tournaments back then, and they played a lot of them.

It wasn't unusual to play 80-90 matches a year, Martina played 100 a year on multiple occasions and that's not counting doubles

Re: Most career titles

I already knew about Martina's 167 titles, but holy crap it's freakin insane!!

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...
