2012 - One of the Best Quality Years for WTA

This year there were 3 players that reached at least 2 major finals.

The first time since 2003 (when tennis was at its arguable peak)


2013 - S. Williams (2/2), V. Azarenka (1/2)
2012 - S. Williams (2/2), V. Azarenka (1/2), M. Sharapova (1/2)
2011 - N. Li (1/2)
2010 - S. Williams (2/2), V. Zvonareva (0/2)
2009 - S. Williams (2/2), D. Safina (0/2)
2008 - S. Williams (1/2), A. Ivanovic (1/2)
2007 - J. Henin (2/2)
2006 - A. Mauresmo (2/2), J. Henin (1/4)
2005 - L. Davenport (0/2), M. Pierce (0/2)
2004 - E. Dementieva (0/2)
2003 - S. Williams (2/2), J. Henin (2/2), V. Williams (0/2), K. Clijsters (0/2)
2002 - S. Williams (3/3), V. Williams (0/3)
2001 - V. Williams (2/2), J. Capriati (2/2)
2000 - V. Williams (2/2), L. Davenport (1/3)

It's interesting that even in years with questionable quality in majors that at least 1 person has made +1 GS final going back at least to 2000 (and I'm sure waaaaaaaaay past then).

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
