Most Women's Singles Tournament Titles

There's been a lot of talk about the men's game recently and who has the most career titles. Federer became only the second man to reach 100 Tour titles, but in the women's game, there's a much bigger club of players who've reached the 100 title mark.

Margaret Court - 192

Court won an incredible 192 titles between 1959 and 1977, amassing 24 Grand Slam singles titles in the process. In 1970, she completed the Grand Slam, winning all four Grand Slam events in the calendar year. Court, who was a tall, rangy player, played an attacking serve-volley game that brought her incredible success.

Martina Navratilova - 167

You would have thought that with 192 titles, Court would be miles and miles ahead of the competition. That's not the case though as the women's game has had some truly remarkable champions. One of those is Martina Navratilova who won a total of 167 singles titles. 18 of those titles came in Grand Slams, 9 of them at Wimbledon.

Chris Evert - 157

Another player who smashed through the 100 career titles mark, Chris Evert won 157 titles between 1972 and 1989. Just like Navratilova, Evert won 18 Grand Slam titles, including a career Grand Slam, she was inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame in 1995.

Billie Jean King - 129

Another massive name in the Women's game, Billie Jean King racked up 129 career singles titles in a hugely successful career. King played from 1959 to 1983, winning 12 Grand Slam singles titles. She also won a career Grand Slam in becoming one of the legends of the game.

Steffi Graf - 107

With 107 career singles titles, Steffi Graf was the fifth woman to reach the 100 club. Between 1982 and 1999, Graf collected 22 Grand Slam titles and achieved the Grand Slam in 1988. Her career was marked by some wonderful rivalries with the likes of Navratilova, Seles and Sanchez Vicario, and she will surely go down as one of the most elegant players of all time.

Evonne Goolagong - 86

Australian Goolagong was incredibly successful throughout the 1970s and early 80s, winning 86 titles including 7 Grand Slam titles. Goolagong came agonizingly close to winning a career Grand Slam, missing out on the US Open when she lost in the 73, 74, 75, and 76 finals.

Suzanne Lenglen - 81

Maria Bueno - 71

Probably one of the least well-known names on this list, Maria Beuno won 71 singles titles between 1950 and 1977. The Brazilian claimed 7 Grand Slam singles titles, 3 at Wimbledon and 4 at the US Open.

Serena Williams - 72
