The Sony Ericsson WTA Tour has calculated that Venus Williams has the most wins among active players at the US Open, but she has a very long way to go if she is to catch the all-time leader, Chris Evert. In fact Venus, who last won the event in 2001, would have to win every one of her matches at the Open up until 2015 and then reach the semifinals in 2016 to overtake her.

The figures up to and including the second round this year for the top five active players are:
1 - Venus Williams: W/L 56/9, Winning percentage: 86
2 - Serena Williams: W/L 52-8, Winning percentage: 87
3 - Elena Dementieva: W/L: 38-12, Winning percentage: 76
4 - Justine Henin: 35-7, Winning percentage: 83
5 - Kim Clijsters: 32-5, Winning percentage 86

Figures for the all-time leaders are:
1 - Chris Evert: W/L 101-12, Winning percentage: 89
2 - Martina Navratilova: W/L 89-17, Winning percentage: 84
3 - Steffi Graf: W/L 73-10, Winning percentage: 88
4 - Lindsay Davenport: W/L 62-16, Winning percentage: 79
5T - Venus Williams: W/L 56-9, Winning percentage: 86
5T - Arantxa Sanchez Vicario: W/L 56-15, Winning percentage: 79
