Question When Was Last Time Serena/Vika Won 2 Premier In 2 Weeks Ala Aga/Caro/Kim/Dinara ?

there are some #1s (and future #1s) that have what it takes to win two big Premier tournaments in two consecutive weeks ... we all know about Kim's 2005 Indian Wells / Miami, Dinara's legendary 2009 Rome / Madrid, Caro's 2010 Tokyo / Beijing and Aga's 2011 Tokyo / Beijing

on the other hand it seems like past #1 Serena and current #1 Vika don't want to risk their bodies to win two Premier events in consecutive weeks ... just looking at recent history:

2011
Vika reaches Madrid FINAL (plays same # of matches as winning) >>> retires in Rome QF
Serena wins Toronto >>> withdraws from Cincy after winning one match to attend a wedding
Vika reaches Toronto SF (plays one less match than winning) >>> withdraws from Cincy
Vika reaches Tokyo SF (plays one less match than winning) >>> withdraws from Beijing after playing one match

2012
Vika wins Doha >>> withdraws from Dubai
Vika reaches Madrid FINAL (plays same # of matches as winning) >>> withdraws from Rome after playing one match
Serena wins Madrid >>> withdraws from Rome

does the SEWTA need to stop holding 2 Big Premiers in 2 consecutive weeks

IW/Miami aren't 1 week events, therefore Kim shouldn't count here :P
