Kim = record number of finals in one year ?!

Kim has reached 7 finals (+ she lost two times against Serna in a semi final) so far this year.

Can someone give me the statistics regarding to the biggest number of finals a player has reached in one year ?

I believe she will reach her 8th final at Rosmalen before Wimbledon.

In the second half of the year she will begin playing indoor tournaments. Everybody knows she is very hard to beat at those tournaments. So, it wouldn't suprise me one bit if she reaches more than 15 finals this year.

Has a player ever done better ?

I think Hingis was in 13 finals in 1997 and only lost one...the infamous FO

Also, I think in 2000 Davenport was in about 11 finals...

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

so she must have been in at least 10 finals...

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Navratilova was 86-1 one year, so that must represent 15 or so finals?

ASV in her best years would have made those finals or more. I wonder how many did in the 94-96 era

Yeah.

That underpins Navratilova's dominance of 29 finals and 28 titles in 2 years in 83-84

I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Steffi Graf's 1989 must have been spectacular. She lost only 2 matches that year - to Sanchez Vicario and Sabatini.

Monica had an incredible streak of reaching finals -- 21 in a row from 90-92. In 1991, as MR says above, she reached 16 finals -- all her events.
