Is Kim setting a record for most matches played?

I'm sure someone knows this, but I don't.

How many matches has Kim played this year?

And what is the record? Who else has played 100 matches or more in a year? Martina Navratilova I know. Anyone else?

The final tonight will be Kim's 102 singles match of the year. I think it is the most matches played in a single season, but don't quote me on that.

There was a thread about this after Luxembourg . . . so I think there is some sort of record . . .

Yes I saw both numbers, so I was having this confusion. Tennis Corner has her with 99 matches, including Fed Cup, but I saw in the articles that it was 101.

I found out nav's record: 102.
I don't know if anyone else ever topped that.

it's a pretty amazing accomplishment.

This is what I hate about the WTA site, they never keep updated match counts during the year They only update at the end of the year.

Guess we'll know soon enough . . .

Maybe I figured it out. Tennis Corner includes the 2 April Fed Cup matches, but no Fed Cup for July.

Did Kim play in July?

Also, some sources include Hopman Cup, which is an exhibition.

Anyway, Kim's 87 or 88 matches won has to be the most in like 20 years!

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

All credit to Clijsters for her great year-and she's played doubles on top of it-but she's no where near the record of matches won in a season.

Chris Evert won over 100 matches in 1974, and Billie Jean won about 117 in 1971. Those are singles stats only.
