Stats Corner: Best Two-Year Stretches
Steffi Graf

Serena Williams concluded a remarkable two-year stretch last week with her second straight triumph at the WTA Championships, putting her in some pretty elite company. It was just the seventh time in WTA history a player had captured at least two WTA Championships, at least four Grand Slams and at least 15 WTA titles over two seasons. How does Williams' two-year stretch compare with the other players who have accomplished this feat?

Player Year Titles Slams WTA Championships
Martina Navratilova '83-'84 29 6 2
Martina Navratilova '84-'85 25 5 2
Martina Navratilova '85-'86 26 4 3 (two editions held in '86)
Monica Seles '90-'91 19 4 2
Monica Seles '91-'92 20 5 2
Steffi Graf '95-'96 16 6 2
Serena Williams '12-'13 18 4 2
