There have only been six. The stat's only been kept since 1975. If ithad included the entire open era, doubtless BJK and Margo would be on the list.

8 Steffi Graf

7 Martina Navratilova

5 Chris Evert

3 Martina Hingis

2 Monica Seles

2 Lindsay Davenport

THe last two years, it looked like we'd add a new name to the list. But we haven't. Since 3 of the players on the list are currently in the top ten, the likelihood of a new year-end #1 is slightly lower. But Lindsay willmiss half the year, Monica is currently #10, and Martina still hasn't solved the power equation. But if, as happened in 2001, the big points are split, someone could sneak through as Lindsay did in 2001.
