Testud was a bit of a late bloomer really where as Sugiyama has been top 50 for a long time.

Its a tough call, exactly how many top ten wins have they both had? and what about titles won?

I know, both have had wins over top ten players. Right now I can only think of two, Justine HH & Clijsters, but there are more. THose are the most recent I think.

Anna Kournikova
Daniela Hantuchova
Jelena Dokic
Anna Chakvetadze
Tatiana Golovin
Maria Kirilenko
Ai Sugiyama

sandrine was ranked top 40 most of her career and like ai she came to the top later on.

sandrine stayed in the top 15 longer though (ai might get back) and she definitely had a bigger game - she really troubled a lot of big guns - beating serena, lindsay (at her best) and many others.

both are very good.

ai has a better doubles record although sandrine again was very strong making GS finals with chanda.

Testud kinda destroyed her reputation by returning this year and then losing to players like Kurhajcova.

Yeah because losing to talented players after having a baby and spending most of your time taking care of it is just pathetic.

Sandrine is going to play some this year.

BTW, Sandrine made the SF of Roland Garros in doubles last year. Is that awful? She also beat Angelika Roesch, Nuria Llagostera Vives, and Magui Serna. I suppose that makes them totally ridiculously stupid, eh?

another + for sandrine. she qualified many times for the year end championsips vs ai's one trip.

+ for ai= more prize money (though a lot has been heaped on since sandrine left to have her baby)
