Yea,there is no Status for Nicole and Radwanska. Certainly a confusion,it seems impossible that they are No Pro!

I'm pretty sure Nicole is pro since she's played two full seasons on the WTA Tour.

I always thought that being a professional means that you gain money from a sport.

edit: and that these money is enough to make a good living so you don't need another job.

Yes, it's right - if you are an amateur, you don't get paid in tennis either. There was a thing with Alex Stevenson when she had her runat Wimby, and she was still and amateur, but she turned pro half way through the tourney so they would pay her...

If Nicole isnt pro, then that means a lpayer in the top 10 is not a professional tennis player
