Kvitova begins milestone 400th week inside top 10 of WTA Rankings, only one other active player has completed feat

Petra Kvitova's longevity in the WTA has been shown this week with a landmark 400th week inside the top 10 of the rankings.

Kvitova first broke into the elite in 2011 and has since returned to the top ten after winning her ninth WTA 1000 title in Miami recently.

Only Venus Williams out of the current crop of active players has also achieved over this achievement putting Kvitova with elite company.

For reference Williams spent 636 weeks in the top ten between 1998 and 2018, Simona Halep is another player who is close with 394 but with current doping predicaments likely won''t reach that number for a while.
