PARIS, France - Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka and Agnieszka Radwanska - all still alive at the French Open - are assured of continuing to occupy the Top 4 spots on the WTA Rankings when the fortnight is over.
Though the order of those four has changed quite a few times since Williams replaced Petra Kvitova in the Top 4 on July 9, 2012, those same four players have been within the Top 4 ever since.
How does that compare to the other longest streaks with the same four players in the Top 4 in recent memory? Here is a list of the longest such streaks since 1990:
|Graf, Navratilova, Sabatini, Seles||Sept. 9, 1991-Oct. 4, 1992||56|
|Graf, Martínez, Navratilova, Sánchez-Vicario||Nov. 8, 1993-Oct. 9, 1994||48|
|Azarenka, Radwanska, Sharapova, S.Williams||July 9, 2012-June 9, 2013 (continuing)||48|
|Capriati, Davenport, Hingis, V.Williams||April 23, 2001-Feb. 24, 2002||44|
|Graf, Navratilova, Sánchez-Vicario, Seles||Feb. 8, 1993-Nov. 7, 1993||39|
