Highest ranked player in a Challenger?

For all you statisticians out there! Just noticed that Alona Bondarenko (currently ranked no. 21) is playing the $100,000 event in Kharkov, UKR. Has anyone else been ranked so high at the time they were playing a challenger?

Re: Highest ranked player in a Challenger?

Nathalie Tauziat played $ 50,000 Val d'Ois challenger tournament in 1991 and she was ranked 13th.
She also played there next year, when she was ranked 14th.

Anna-Lena Groenefeld was ranked 19th, when she played $ 75,000 tournament in Ortisei 2006.

Martina Hingis as #16 won PROSTEJOV 75K in 1996 defeating in the final Barbara Paulus, who was #25.

Muller often plays challengers instead of tour events when she is ranked in the Top40.

Re: Highest ranked player in a Challenger?

Nicole Arendt (top ten doubles player at the time) won Tier I Rome in the mid-90's and the following week played a $10.000$ challenger in France right before the French Open

Re: Highest ranked player in a Challenger?

Hmmm, Dechy was #13 you say? I wonder what the chances of #3 playing a challenger are...

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Re: Highest ranked player in a Challenger?

Wow those are some crazy stats.... and I'm sitting here thinking Yvonne Meusburger should not have played Bronx. I see now that there has been worse cases.

If there's no tournament that week I can definitely see Jankovic taking her overplayed ass to a challenger.

Pretty good, I'd say, especially if there are no WTA tournaments that week
