Next french to win a Slam

I've just realized something about french players and Slams final.

1994: Mary Pierce reached the final of the FO
1995: Mary Pierce won the AO
1997: Mary Pierce reached the final of the AO
Mary Pierce has a two handed backhand

1998: Nathalie Tauziat reached the final of Wimbledon
1999: Amélie Mauresmo reached the final of the AO
Tauziat and Mauresmo have a one handed backand

2000: Mary Pierce won the FO
2005: Mary Pierce reached the final of the FO and the final of the US Open

2006: Amélie Mauresmo won the AO and Wimbledon

2007: Marion Bartoli reached the final of Wimbledon

So the next french player to win a Slam or to reach the final will be a two handed backhand player!

Mary Pierce
1995 Australian Open champion
2000 Roland Garros champion
1994 Roland Garros runner-up
1997 Australian Open runner-up
2005 Roland Garros and US Open runner-up

1997 and 2005 YEC runner-up
18 Titles
She'll be back

Mauresmo (HIGH doubts though), or someone we don't know about yet.

Re: Next french to win a Slam

Sorry, you kids just don't have the prospects. France has a lot of players to crowd the top 100 and some strong candidates for a solid career, but major champions you have not-- well maybe Mauresmo will wake up and win again or Pierce will storm a title.

Re: Next french to win a Slam

I would say Mauresmo. For some reason I think she will one more slam before her career is over.
Golovin is not ready, and Bartoli is so unpredictable! How about Rezai in a few years?
