*Current streak before this year's USO 3rd round.
**Current streaks including this year's USO 4th round.

Notes: Maybe I shouldn't call Safina active. She's is certainly taking a temporary break at the moment. And I'm not sure about Osterloh's status but I assume she's not retired yet.

The list is sorted so the player with the most recent streak is listed first (in case of equal streaks).

Same as above - only retired players. It's not an all-time best list; it's rather a selection of good, interesting or popular players:

Martina Navratilova 35
Steffi Graf 19
Helena Sukova 18
Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario 17
Lindsay Davenport 14
Martina Hingis 12
Jennifer Capriati 10
Conchita Martinez 10
Justine Henin 7
Amelie Mauresmo 7
Monica Seles 6
Anke Huber 6
Elena Dementieva 5
Mary Pierce 5
Chanda Rubin 5
Sandrine Testud 5
Mary-Joe Fernandez 5
Jana Novotna 5
Patty Schnyder 4
Nicole Vaidisova 4
Anastasia Myskina 4
Barbara Schett 4
Anna Kournikova 4
Irina Spirlea 4
Elena Likhovtseva 3
Natalia Zvereva 3

Notes: It's probably surprising that Seles' best streak is only 6 tournaments, but what a streak: 5 titles and a final 1991-1993! We know why this streak ended :sad:

Navratilova reached the 4th round at 35 consecutive slams 1980-1989 winning 15 titles and reaching another 8 finals during this streak. Only three tournaments during this streak ended at the 4th round.

Graf's worst result in her 19-tournament streak was a quarterfinal. She reached at least the semifinal in 18 of the tournaments! And she won 10 titles (5 in a row).

Hingis won 5 titles during her best streak of 12 (and was runner up 3 times).
