Since 2000: Swiatek aims for the Venus record

This is the most interesting number. The winning streak has not been legion on the WTA circuit since the beginning of the 21st century. Here, Iga Swiatek ranks third behind the Williams sisters. She has just surpassed Justine Hénin, 32 wins between August 2007 and January 2008.

Iga Swiatek is quite far away. The “all time” record is held by Martina Navratilova with 74 straight wins in the 1984 season. This is the absolute record in the history of tennis.

The Czechoslovakian American holds five of the top ten marks in WTA circuit history. Chris Evert and Steffi Graf share the rest. Swiatek will need another seven wins to make it into the Top 10.
