The year 2024 has been a very special one for Danielle Collins. Having announced right at the start that this will be her last year on the professional circuit, she has found her best form and does not know any stopping. Having won the Miami Open and the Charleston Open a few weeks back, she came into the Madrid Open with high hopes. However, she could make it past the round of 16.

But, she seems to have left it all behind and has come into the Italian Open with nothing but the title in sight. Having made her way into the round of 16, she looks in fine form and nothing at the moment seems to stop her. However, as she made her way into the final 16, another record followed her along the way. With her win against Caroline Garcia, she made it 15 wins in WTA 1000 matches this year out of 18 matches.

With this, she joined an elite list dominated by the Williams sisters. She is now only behind the incredible Williams sisters Serena and Venus as they are the only American players who have a better record than the 30-year-old player (when it comes to winning the fastest 15 matches in the Masters WTA 1000 events).
