The first quarter of 2017 is in the books, and before the WTA tour turns to the European red clay, it’s time to take one last look back at the Top 5 moments that have shaped the season thus far.

Up next on our countdown, a pair of WTA stars who showed the world that slow and steady wins the race…

Svitolina Can’t Stop Winning: When Elina Svitolina started winning, she could hardly be stopped. The Ukrainian dominated the headlines in February, when she put together an impressive 15-match winning streak and capped it off with the best result of her career.

She started off in Taipei City, where she claimed the Taiwan Open title, then notched back-to-back Fed Cup wins for Ukraine before taking home her biggest title to date at the Premier 5-level Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. She stayed dominant against the WTA’s top players, too, and posted back-to-back wins over Caroline Wozniacki and Angelique Kerber on her way to the Dubai title.
