The Tier I and Tier II events that haven't been mentioned here don't have any champions with 3 or more titles.
It is also to be noted that the women had two tours in the 70s and the early 80s: an indoor circuit of events held in the United States (sponsored by Virginia Slims until 1978 and then by Avon from 1979 to 1982) followed by a worldwide circuit (sponsored by Colgate until 1980 and then by Toyota in 1981-82). As a result, the women had two season-ending events, one for the Slims/Avon circuit and another for the Colgate/Toyota circuit. It wasn't until the two tours were merged into a single circuit sponsored by Virginia Slims in 1983 that the women had a single tour ending event.

Navratilova's numbers go higher if you take into account the fact that she won both the Avon and Colgate events in 1979 and the Toyota Championships in 1982.

Year Champion
1978 Evert (Colgate), Navratilova (Slims)
1979 Navratilova (Colgate), Navratilova (Avon)
1980 Austin (Colgate), Austin (Avon)
1981 Austin (Toyota), Navratilova (Avon)
1982 Navratilova (Toyota), Hanika (Avon)

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

Re: Open Era Tournament Ownership

The Virginia Slims/Avon title was the more prestigious one of the two though and is usually referred too as "the real" YEC of old. The Colgate/Toyota event only existed from 1976 up to including 1982. The Virginia Slims Championships got started in 1972.

Re: Open Era Tournament Ownership

Reigning US Open champion Angel Cabrera will lead a field that includes four Major winners and two Presidents Cup campaigners when the South African Airways Open tees off at Pearl Valley Golf Estates in December.

Cabrera will join defending South African Airways Open champion Ernie Els, former champion Retief Goosen and former world number one Greg Norman on the fairways of the Jack Nicklaus-designed Pearl Valley when the €1,000,000 Championship is played there from 13 to 16 December 2007.

Pearl Valley Golf Estates will become the home of the Championship for the next three years, it was announced today. The three-year deal is aimed at ensuring greater investment in the medium and long-term success of the Open.

The deal, and the presence of five of the world's leading golfers and the iconic Norman, offer powerful examples of the growing status the South African Airways Open enjoys on the international golf schedule.

Cabrera returns to the Championship having claimed his first Major in the US Open at Oakmont this year, while Els and Goosen bring a total of five Majors between them - and Norman brings a record of 88 tournament wins including two Majors.

The world-class field also includes Presidents Cup campaigners and former South African Airways Open champions Trevor Immelman and Tim Clark.
