Seasons for the ages?

After hearing similar comments about Novak's 2011 season , i wonder how many women have put together season for the ages?

I think of Graf' 1988 season (Golden Slam)....maybe Hingis's 1997: all four GS Finals, winning 3/4, only 5 losses( 3 of which were either 7/5 or 7/6 in 3rd),12 titles, 35-0 start; Serena's 2002 winning all 3 slams she played, only 4 losses(3 of which were 7/5 or 7/6 in 3rd), 8 titles??

And that's it lol. But if you say maybe Hingis it's also maybe Serena, as Hingis did the Small Slam in 1997, reaching the 4 finals and winning 3 of 4

Well she only played three, beat Serena Williams in all of them and won two of them. Only had four losses the entire year. Won 10 titles...

Martina 1983-1984, winning 6 slams in a row and compiling 86-1 and 78-2 records. 29 titles in all (16 in 1983, 13 in 1984).
You could make the case for 1982 and 1986 (with 2 slams and a final, AO not played that year) as well: 90-3 in each and also 29 combined titles.

If Hingis and Serena are included then Steffi also has a bunch of other seasons that are better than theirs:
1989 - 3 slams and a final, 14 titles, 86-2 record
1993 - 3 slams and a final, 10 titles
1995-1996 - 3 slams won out of 3 in each (missed the Australian twice due to injuries), 101-6 combined record.

Seles 1991 (3 out of 3, DNP Wimbledon) and 1992 (3 slams and a final), 10 titles each.
