Are juniors counted in?
Seeing Martina has 29 consecutive Slams, which is 7 years and 1 slam ;) so that's the start of '94. Did she play seniors then?

Brian Stewart
Feb 15th, 2002, 07:07 PM
No, Martina joined the pro tour in the fall of 1994, as soon as she was elgible. Since then, she hasn't missed a slam. Starting with the 1995 Australian Open, that's 7 straight years of playing every slam (1995-2001) plus this year's Oz for 29.

GOD 7 Straight years thats amazing another 9 years
still to go probably or more

Linton
Feb 15th, 2002, 09:53 PM
OHHHH NO SHES NEARLY PAST HER HALF WAY AMRK, IS THAT WHEN THEY ARE AT THERE FULLY PEAK OF THE GAME.

Linton

Updated through the 2003 US Open. Some people are way up the lists. If they play every slam next year, Frazier moves into a tie for #2, and Conchita moves up to #5 with 60 slams played. Rittner would move into the top 15, and Maleeva would make an even 20 players with 50+ slams played.

Seles has missed so many slams... she's only played in 40.. and has won 8, so she's won 20% of the slams she's played. COME ON MONICA, come back strong!

Updated through the recently-completed Aussie Open. (I basically used that draw and this thread, so some additions may need to be made.)

Frazier has joined the exclusive 60 club. She holds the record for an American-born player, and for a non-European-born player. Coetzer has the mark for someone who wasn't born in either Europe or the USA, and extended her consecutive slams record. McQuillan is still 2 short of the Aussie record.

thanks! very interesting.

Virginia Ruano Pascual has played 37 GS overall

Gala Leon García has played 31 GS overall

Cristina Torrens Valero has played 30 consecutive GS overall

seeing Amy playing 2 more US Open actually is not too unlikely, she does try to save her energies up by not traveling abroad, i do hope to see her surpass Martina N who probably would have played much more if Aussie Open was as good back then. Anyways, good luck Amy.

Geez, Amy's gonna bust the record.

DelMonte yeah..and martina should't really count for all time slams since she has not played a singles match in a grand slam in nearly 10 years...Martina RARELY played the Aussie and french open in the late 80s to mid 90s :wavey: Amy is da girl ;-) :kiss:

Great list Brian. I had King at 51 and Durr at 50, Court at 47 and Richey at 38, so will check. There's also Lesley Turner to add, who played 41.

cool thread ;)

Betsy Nagelsen played 42 slams according to Bud Collins. He too has King at 51, Turner at 41, Court at 47. Durr's 51 must include the 1964 French Nationals, where she scratched her first match to Studer.

Richey's total must include the 1972 French Open where she scratched her first match (3rd round) to Sherriff-Chanfreau. This isn't enough to explain the difference and I think I screwed up here, so will try and recalculate.

Brian Stewart
Feb 25th, 2004, 06:15 AM
Andy, I added Lesley Turner. Does Bud list which slams she played, and the finish? Does he have anyone else over 40?

The retired players list had been compiled a few years back, from old WTA Guides. I just double-checked them against last year's Guide, and lo and behold King does have 51, and Court 47. I made those changes. It does confirm my totals for Durr (yes, the 1964 RG is included) and Richey (1972 RG is not). I also rechecked the last Guide with Nagelsen, and it still gives the same total of 53. Of course, some of the entries could be incorrect. (It wouldn't be the first time.)

Here's what I have for the players in question:

Richey:
OZ(2)- 66, 67
RG(9)- 64-66, 68, 69, 71, 73, 77, 78
WIM(11)- 61, 62, 64-69, 71, 72, 75
US(18)- 59, 60, 62-67, 69-78
Total=40

Nagelsen:
OZ(9)- 77(J), 78, 80, 81, 83-85, 87, 88
RG(12)- 74-76, 78, 80-86, 90
WIM(17)- 74, 76-91
US(15)- 74, 76-89
Total=53

Granted, I haven't gone back and checked every individual drawsheet. So if there is a mistake there, let me know. I plan to do some checking once we finish (or nearly finish) Rollo's Grand Slam Project, to see who else can be added. (Additions are always welcome, folks! :) </shameless plug>)

Hey brian,

Turner played the following:
Aus:16
59:QF, 60:L16, 61:L16, 62:QF, 63:SF, 64:F 65:L16, 66:L16, 67:F, 68:SF, 69:L16, 71:2rd, 73:L16, 75:L64, 76:QF, 77(jan) 1rd.

Fr:9 (and a VERY impressive record!)
61:L16, 62:F, 63:W, 64:SF, 65:W 67:F, 69:SF,
71:QF, 78:3r

Wim:10
61:L64, 62:QF, 63:L16, 64:SF, 65:QF, 67:QF, 68:QF, 69:QF,
71:L16, 78:2r

US:6
61:QF, 62:L16, 64:L64, 67:SF, 69:L32, 73:2rd.

The WTA guides are indeed decidedly dodgy when it comes to historical bios. I found 100 factual errors in the former Grand Slam winners section alone a couple of years back. The 2003 version still has Goolagong as reaching the 4r at Wimbledon in 77 when in fact it was Gourlay as Goolagong was on maternity at the time.

Richey lost in the first round at the US in 1958 (her début Grand Slam tournament). i'll check properly for her and get back to you.

I may be able to help with some Grand Slam results (have all women's singles and doubles from 1960 on for the 4 and Aus, French and Wimby from 55 on)

Brian Stewart

Thanks for the additional info, Andy! And those slam results will come in handy. The Australian and French results have proven particularly difficult to obtain. With your info filling in some gaps, we should have the lion's share of post-WWII results. The Open-era slam results are available at the ITF women's site (singles and doubles), so we can get those fairly readily.

Do you have a lot of "regular" tournament results too? I'm gathering those as well. My ultimate ambition is to have all of the singles, doubles, qualifying results. I need to fill in a handful of singles results between 1981 and 1991 from the ITF site, and fill in my doubles and qualifying before mid-1995. Then I'll have most of the main tour stuff for the last 25 years or so. With our info exchanges in the BFTP forum, we can all have a ton of info.

Andy T
Feb 26th, 2004, 07:56 AM
What a great project! I don't have much early round stuff from regular tourneys, unfortunately, but will definitely contribute anything I can. It's great to think that everyone is going to be able to track his/her faves' career right through.

Brian Stewart

Updated through Wimbledon. Frazier up to #3, Martinez into top 5. Maleeva just short of 50 career. Sugiyama and Schett join the list.

Brian Stewart
Sep 19th, 2004, 08:25 AM
Updated through US Open '04. The world's #1 doubles team each joins the singles list, and several others keep inching up.

Brian Stewart
Sep 16th, 2005, 09:08 AM
Updated through US Open '05 (sort of. I'll need to change the date in the original post, and de-bold Nagyova, Grande, and Suarez in the streak section, as their streaks were interrupted.)

Frazier ties for 1st, Martinez into 3rd. Likhovtseva and Sugiyama tie longest streak.

Thanks Brian! Great job! I love these longetivity stats, they are a sign of who has been a dedicated professional and consistently good against several generations!

Go Amy :D!

Updated through Wimbledon. I'm using a slightly different version of the browser, which threw off the alignment when editing, but it's still readable. (I'll fix it later.)

Quite a few people have impressive streaks going.
