-----------------------------------

Injury prevents Martina Navratilova from competing in a women's series finale for the first time since 1974. She probably holds the record for most consecutive appearances in this type of event.

For the second time in 1990 Sabatini upsets Graf in a major event.
Seles wins an incredible 5 set final before a record crowd of 18,209. It's was the first 5 set women's match since the early 1900s and Monica comeback in grand style earns her the #1 ranking from several tennis magazines while Graf remains #1 on the computer. Seles adherants argue she won 2 "majors" to one for Graf and beat the German twice. Graf supporters gave her the nod for being more consistent.

Notes:

A disaster. The WTA moves the YEC out of Madison Square Garden. Monica Seles won't play in Germany because of her 1993 stabbing, Venus didn't enter, and overall attendence was horrible. This was the first (and perhaps last for quite some time) year end event held outside the United States.

Sanchez-Vicario qualified for her 13th consecutive WTA season-ending event.

Serena Williams wins her first major event sincce the 1999 US Open. Even the final goes badly. Davenport injures her knee after a controversial call and pulls out of the final. Despite not winning a slam or the WTA finals Davenport ends the years as computer #1.
