Stats Corner: Longest US Open Win Streaks
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
Kim Clijsters 22 '05, '09-'10, '12
Martina Navratilova 20 '83-'85
Monica Seles 20 '91-'92, '95
Venus Williams 20 '00-'02


Clijsters is one of just nine players in the Open Era to win a Grand Slam in at least three straight appearances. Here is the complete list:

Player Tournament(s)
Margaret Court Australian Open: '69-'71, '73
Evonne Goolagong Cawley Australian Open: '74-'77
