The 600 Club

http://www.wtatennis.com/news/201203...256076_2693866

MIAMI, FL, USA - Stuck on 598 career match wins since August while battling Sjögren's Syndrome, Venus Williams got to 600 and beyond in just her first event back on the WTA at the Sony Ericsson Open.

Williams' first round triumph over Kimiko Date-Krumm was her 599th, then her elimination of World No.3 Petra Kvitova on Friday put her at 600, her outlasting of Aleksandra Wozniak on Sunday gave her No.601 and her three-set victory on Monday over Ana Ivanovic was her 602nd.

Here is a list of all the players with at least 600 wins in the Open Era:

Player Record (Win Percentage)
Martina Navratilova 1442-219 (.868)
Chris Evert 1309-146 (.900)
Steffi Graf 902-115 (.887)
Virginia Wade 839-329 (.718)
Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario 759-295 (.720)
Lindsay Davenport 753-194 (.795)
Conchita Martínez 739-297 (.713)
Evonne Goolagong Cawley 695-158 (.815)
Billie Jean King 695-155 (.818)
Gabriela Sabatini 632-189 (.770)
Pam Shriver 623-271 (.697)
Helena Sukova 618-308 (.667)
Nathalie Tauziat 605-365 (.624)
Venus Williams 602-147 (.804)

Notes: Several players on this list started their careers before the Open Era, but this list reflects Open Era wins in main draw and qualifying of WTA and ITF Women's Circuit events … Only three active players besides Williams have at least 500 wins - Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams and Tamarine Tanasugarn.

Most shocking is that both sisters should have way more, which is why it's hard to put them in contention with all time greats.
And it isn't an era thing, because Wozniacki, Azarenka and Radwanska are all over 300, and will hit 600, bar significant injury or serious drop off a la Ivanovic, at around 27 or 28.

Re: The 600 Club

Elena finished her career with 576 wins, she could easily get the 600 wins...

I don't really consider Venus' total that low. She'll likely pass Tauziat, Sukova, Shriver, and Sabatini before her career is over which would put her at 10th all time in the Open era which isn't bad.

Serena is the one who has such a low level of wins compared to her other accomplishments.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

How does Chris Evert have 4 less slams than Steffi Graf?
