She accumulated a total of 35 wins over her career, which ties with Margaret Court and Dianne Balestrat as the third-most ever from an Australian.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Due to an oversight some of her tournament records in 1976 were not properly transferred to a computer, which meant that Goolagong did not receive the No. 1 ranking at the time. The mistake was acknowledged by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) in December 2007 and after correcting the records she retroactively received the No. 1 ranking.[1][2]
