Kim Clijsters

NEW YORK, NY, USA - It seems appropriate that Kim Clijsters is playing her final WTA tournament at the Grand Slam where she has had the most success. In fact, her first round victory over Victoria Duval on Monday was her 22nd straight at the US Open - a streak that dates back to the first of her three titles at Flushing Meadows in 2005.

Here are the longest US Open winning streaks of the Open Era:

Player Streak Years
Chris Evert 31 '75-'79

Martina Navratilova 20 '83-'85
Monica Seles 20 '91-'92, '95
Venus Williams 20 '00-'02
