Re: INDIAN WELLS 2013- Perfect finish: Maria wins her 2nd IW TITLE :D

I dunno if anyone has posted this before:

Masha has now won at least one WTA title for 11 consecutive seasons. She is one of six players with at least that many:
Navratilova: 21 straight years (1974-1994)
Evert: 18 straight years (1971-1988)
Graf: 14 straight years (1986-1999)
Wade: 11 straight years (1968-1978)
Goolagong: 11 straight years (1970-1980)
Sharapova: 11 straight years (2003-2013)

Masha is the seventh Indian Wells champion not to lose a set en route to the title and the first who's done it twice:
1991: Navratilova
1992: Seles
1994: Graf
1998: Hingis
2004: Henin
2006: Sharapova
2009: Zvonareva
2013: Sharapova

Besides Masha (2006 and 2013) only 7 women have won the IW title twice since 1989
Kim Clijsters (2003 and 2005)
Daniela Hantuchova (2002 and 2007)
Serena Williams (1999 and 2001)
Lindsay Davenport (1997 and 2000)
Steffi Graf (1994 and 1996)
Mary Joe Fernandez (1993 and 1995)
Martina Navratilova (1990 and 1991)
