That should be Martina Navratilova. I read it last week in the media guide. I think it spanned from USO some year to Australia. I have to check though.

But Only Lindsay does 4 tournaments win in 4 weeks!

She did it thrice in her career.

1998 California Summer Hardscourt Season sweep
2004 California Summer Hardcourt Season Sweep
2002 European Fall Indoor Season Sweep

All 4 weeks and 4 tournaments sweep.

Can't beat that!!!

Margreat Court did the same thing at the 1970 USO, at a time when the top players played doubles and mixed.

Hopefully JH can join this elite list by winning her first three (or more) tournaments next year.

Achieving these records in the modern era of tennis is much more difficult. There is way more competition than in the past and the increase in power and speed make that fatigue and injuries are major factors today.

Navratilova, Evert and even Graf had simply less competition to deal with.

I think Justine can do it...win Sydney, AO, and I guess Dubai/Doha?

Huh?
2002, Lindsay didn't even win a title.
and in 2004, Lindsay won 4 titles, yes, but Toronto broke it up into 5 weeks.

I think QUEENLINDSAY meant 2001 - Filderstadt, Zurich and Linz in three consecutive weeks and making it to the YEC final.

1998, she won 3 tournaments, lost in New Haven, then won the Open.
2004 she did it in 5 weeks
2001* she won three in a row and made it to the final of her fourth before withdrawing w/ injury.

A bit overstated, but for the most part, probably true if you consider just singles. But Court, King, Nav, played lots of doubles which probably made up for the different style of play.

Venus won 6 tournaments in a row in 2000, and I guess Justine is around that.

I don't think Serena even won 3 tournaments in a row. Funny because you'd think she'd be more consistent than her sister.

Right that was the year she had came back from surgery. But the year before she went on a Fall tear winning three titles.

Doesn't Margaret Smith Court hold the record for the most tournament titles in a season - something like 20 not sure though....
