British girls!

do you think that in 2005 a british girl will finally reach the top 100 and could someone tell me who was the last one to be in top 100

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

I think it was Louise Latimer or Sam Smith

Baltacha, Keothavong, Janes can make top 100, maybe not in 2005 but soon, in a few years.

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Is Baltacha related to outstanding 80s footballer Sergei Baltacha?

hmm Webley Smith seems promising as does O'Donoghue, the British did well at Wimbledon last year, I think there will be a top 100'er in 2006

I know that she's the daughter of a famous football player, but as I don't know anything about football I can assure you it's him, but I guess it is...

Sam Smith got to about 56-ish in 1999 - Latimer got to 107 and closest since would be Anne Keothavong who was 140 earlier this year before she got injured

I would love to say "yes" to the question and although I voted yes... that's me being very optimistic.

Wait... that doesn't make sense... anyway, Bally can make 100 I'm SURE and hopefully it'll be next year!

YOU HAVEN'T HEARD THE LAST FROM ME!
Because I'm still talking! That's right!

Wasteful, pointless randomness for your amusement.
