Season ending winning streaks. Several players were playing real well at the end of 2001. Wherever they ended it.
I'm not looking back past California hard court season. Further, I'm looking for how the player was doing as their season ended.

Lindsay - Three tournaments wins, and she gets hurt. Just pulled out of Sydney. It's a shame. She was on top of her game.

CH Stuttgart
CH Zurich
CH Linz
FN Tour Champs


Venus - Win, win, win. And she's in the Gold Coast final.

CH San Diego
CH New Haven
CH US Open
CH Gold Coast


Serena - Win, final, win - Hard to do.

CH Toronto
FN US
CH Tour Champs


Monica = Win, win, win. Like Venus, hasn't actually lost a WTA match in quite a while.

CH Bahia
CH Japan Open
CH Shanghai


************
A couple other players were more inconsistent, but put together a couple tournament wins, and consistent good performance

Jelena - Going DEEP into tournaments. 2 wins plus 3 finals in last 7 tournaments.

FN Bahia
CH Tokyo
16 Leipzig
CH Moscow
FN Zurich (Davenport)
FN Linz (Davenport)
QF Tour Champs (Davenport)

Kim - Up and down. But the 'ups' win tournaments.
[list]
CH Leipzig
16 Stuttgart
CH Luxemborg
SF Tour Champs


***************

Jenn, Martina, Justine, Amelie - All did their big winning early.

Hey LucasArg, make it 13!!! Venus won her last 13 matches without losing a set. Curiously, the last 3 setter she played (and won!) was against Justine Henin at the Pilot Pen!!!!
