Margaret Court had 102–5 in 1973 and won 3 GS to boot.

In fact Jelena is a mother of modern vulturing.

But when she became GOAT she started to play less.

Almost all Tier II's had 4 byes for the top 4. So Scottsdale, Princess Cup, Leipzig were only 12 wins for example.

2 wins in Sydney, 4 Scottsdale, 6 Miami, 2 Charleston, 3 Berlin (had a walkover), 5 Rome, 7 RG, 7 Wimbledon, 2 LA (this was rare Tier II with 56 draw), 7 USO, 4 Toyota, 4 Leipzig, 3 YEC. Brings you 56 for 2012.

Re: 70+ match wins in a single season?

I think this kind of wins are not as possible today due to this slow hardcourts. Before you had clay, but clay doesn't beat up the body. And then grass, points tend to be quicker and grass is also less on the body.

During Martina's days, Aussie was on grass, and the hardcourts were mainly pre-US Open which were fast. there were no slow hardcourts.

She also had 100+ wins in 1970. What a legend

That said, biased as I am, I think what Serena has done is just as impressive. Most events were either on grass or clay back in the 70's, so to rack up this many wins not just on hard (shout out to Hingis in '97), but given the increased physicality of the game, is just phenomenal.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.
