Venus Williams is the only one who's defended two different GS titles.
Martina Hingis is the only one who's defended two different Tier I titles.
Venus and Amelie Mauresmo are the only active players who have won two different tournaments three (or more) consecutive times each.

Great post AnnaK_4ever!!! :p :) :) Great to see martina Hingis defend her big titles. :)

In doubles Martina defended

Australian Open 1997-1998-1999
WTA Championships 1999-2000
Zurich (TI) 1996-1997

Funny thing looking through her doubles record, She has won all GS, Championship and Tier I except Berlin, and a handful (13) of TII: Sydney, Paris, Stanford, Philadelphia, Filderstadt, Los Angeles, Eastbourne. :)
