Last time two left-handers in WTA top 10?

Was just thinking about this earlier; with Kvitova and Kerber both in the top 10 in the next rankings list, when was the last time this happened on WTA? I've been following the tour since around 2003 and can't ever remember there being more than one lefty ranked in the top 10 at any given time. I know Seles and Navratilova were both top 10 in the 90's but any since then?

cibulkova - dementieva - giorgi - m.inoue - king - lucic-baroni - nara
olaru - pivovarova - rogowska - tsurenko - vögele - wolfe - wozniak

I'm pretty sure the last time 2 lefties were in the top 10 at the same time was Seles and Schnyder, April 1999, so this is a first for this millennium.

Sharapova can hit a left forehand!!!!!!!! You know, because that's so much better than being mobile enough to hit an adequate slice. Does Sharapova count as a lefty?

of course, she does!!! and more IMPORTANTLY, she actually has hit a WINNER from her lefty forehand. Not many of the supposed GOATs can do that
