The numbers say 'yes'. Take a look at 'points per tournament' for some representative players. Serena and Veus maximize the hell out of their chances to get points. Others do not.

Keep in mind 'points per tournament' is NOT the WTA rankings. They only take the 17 best results. I divided points by number of tournaments. This hurts players like Dokic and Clijsters, who play hurt and under-perform a lot. The top ten remains the top ten, but the order shifts.
Serena (#1) averages 445 points per tournament
Venus (#2) averages 351 points per tournament
Lindsay (#9) averages 293 points per tournament
Jenn (#3) averages 246 points per tournament
Martina (#8) averages 234 points per tournament

Monica (#4) averages 206 points per tournament
Kim (#5) averages 151 points per tournament
Justine (#7) averages 137 points per tournament
Amelie (#10) averages 126 points per tournament
Jelena (#6) averages 99 points per tournament

Daniela (#12) averages 81 points per tournament
Meghann (#20) averages 53 points per tournament
