2012 - One of the Best Quality Years for WTA

This year there were 3 players that reached at least 2 major finals.

The first time since 2003 (when tennis was at its arguable peak)


2013 - S. Williams (2/2), V. Azarenka (1/2)
2012 - S. Williams (2/2), V. Azarenka (1/2), M. Sharapova (1/2)
2011 - N. Li (1/2)
2010 - S. Williams (2/2), V. Zvonareva (0/2)
2009 - S. Williams (2/2), D. Safina (0/2)
2008 - S. Williams (1/2), A. Ivanovic (1/2)
2007 - J. Henin (2/2)
2006 - A. Mauresmo (2/2), J. Henin (1/4)
2005 - L. Davenport (0/2), M. Pierce (0/2)
2004 - E. Dementieva (0/2)
2003 - S. Williams (2/2), J. Henin (2/2), V. Williams (0/2), K. Clijsters (0/2)
2002 - S. Williams (3/3), V. Williams (0/3)
2001 - V. Williams (2/2), J. Capriati (2/2)
2000 - V. Williams (2/2), L. Davenport (1/3)

It's interesting that even in years with questionable quality in majors that at least 1 person has made +1 GS final going back at least to 2000 (and I'm sure waaaaaaaaay past then).
