All the graphs i keep finding on the internet are pointing me to articles, where it usually rates top-10 player with most titles in a season (both open era and all-times), which in most cases only starts with double digits! I want to know the entire picture, but can't find information anywhere! Iga has a chance to win her 9th title if she wins the WTA finale! But i can't find an information on how many players other than herself won 8 or 9 titles in a season...What is the best source for that sort of thing?
...I'm well aware, that i can simply google each player individually and visit their career statistics page on wiki, but that is extremely time consuming, i would like some sort of graph, that shows maybe i dunno...between 5 and 9 titles as well (because that's basically the range, most people win titles these days...double digits are extremely rare these days even for dominating players)...The reason i need this is that i want to compare how Iga's season fares against some other players of the past, that had great seasons before...
...Does anyone knows the site, that considers players in the 5-9 title range as well and not only focus on those going 10 and beyond?...

This will sound like a joke but wikipedia towards the bottom of their yearly WTA page shows who's won the most titles and also says the nations too but just cause I have some time on my hands and to give you some stats for the most titles won per season in singles:

2021: Barty - 5 (Covid disruptions) and next was Kontaveit - 4
2020: Sabalenka & Halep - 3 (also Covid disruptions). Next was Kenin & Svitolina - 2
2019: Barty & Pliskova - 4. Next was Sabalenka, Kenin, Andreescu and Osaka - 3
2018: Kvitova - 5. Next was Svitolina - 4.
2017: Svitolina - 5. Next was Pavlyuchenkova & Pliskova - 3.
2016: Cibulkova - 4 (!). Next was a big tie of: Kerber, Azarenka, Halep, Radwanska and Sloane all on 3.
2015: Serena - 5. Next was Kerber on 4.
2014: Serena - 7. Next was Sharapova & Ivanovic on 4.
2013: Serena - 11. Next was Halep on 6.
2012: Serena - 7. Next was Azarenka with 6.
2011: Kvitova & Wozniacki - 6. Next was a tie of Vinci, Azarenka and Radwanska on 3.
2010: Wozniacki - 6. Next was Clijsters on 5.
2009: Azarenka, Serena, Kuznetsova, Wozniacki, Safina, Dementieva - all on 3. Not even going to try to list those on 2.
2008: Jankovic, Safina and Serena - 4. Too many to list on 3.
2007: Henin - 10. Next was Chakvetadze & Jankovic on 4.
2006: Henin - 6. Next was Petrova & Sharapova on 5.
2005: Clijsters - 9. Next was Davenport on 6.
2004: Davenport - 7. Next was Henin, Maursemo & Sharapova on 5.

Gotcha! Thanks for taking your sweet time doing all that pesky research! I appreciate it!
...So basically the main take away from this is that 4-7 title range was quite a standard for a while! At least judging by these numbers! Anyone going above overperforms, while going beyond underperforms? is that right? I mean like if you are a player of the year with only 3 titles, you are like the most underperforming player of the year in the 21st century, whilst if you win more than 7 in a season in you are of the best? Iga is in the right place, judging by that! Only Clijsters in 2005 (which still can be equaled!), Henin in 2010 and Serena in 2013 did it better! Not a bad company to be in! All established legends of the game and serial slam winners!
...Also the fact that WTA tour was stuck in the 3-5 title range for the player with most title in a season for the last 7 years highlights all that was wrong with the tour all these years...i'm surprised to find out Serena finished the year with only 5 titles in 2015 though! I remember her having a "great year" going for the calendar slam, kinda weird that she has only won 5 titles in the proccess with having year like that...but then again so did Djokovic in 2021...The other surprising thing is Serena's sister Venus not making this list as i totally expect her to land within 2004-2009 period range with at least one season finished with most titles...
