Tennis : les filles ont disparu de la circulation



Que s’est-il passé sur le circuit féminin cette année ? Et en particulier du côté des françaises ? C’est la descente au fond du gouffre pour les Bleues cette année. On cherche, on cherche, mais c’est l’hécatombe.



Il y a un an, Amélie Mauresmo prenait sa retraite. On attendait la relève qui n’est jamais arrivée. Alors qu’en 2009 elles étaient 6 à être dans le Top 75 mondial, voilà qu’il n’y a plus que deux français dans les 75 premières places du classement WTA : la n°1 française Marion Bartoli et Aravanne Rezaï. A la 78e place, Alizée Cornet pointe le bout de son nez, elle était 11e en 2009, pour elle 2010 sonne comme une longue chute.

Finies les Mary Pierce, Nathalie Tauziat et Sandrine Testud : les joueuses françaises ont du mal à vaincre les machines américaines telles que les sœurs Williams. Le circuit féminin tombe dans l’oubli. Qui connaît la n°1 mondiale aujourd’hui ? Elle s’appelle Caroline Wozniacki et n’a remporté aucun Grand Chelem cette année.

Reste les Virginie Razzano, Mathilde Johansson et Pauline Parmentier qui pointent au-delà de la 100e place.

Espérons que 2011 soit un meilleur cru.

Re: **Articles and Interviews **

yes what happening for french tennis is dramatic cause we had big history with big champions, many top10 players, one n°1 who was amélie.
Not a good period right now but France still has talent, youngs hopes are coming in junior and perhaps there are some future french champions in it.

I still have affection for alize, used to really trust in her potential but she just couldnt handle it. She made bad choices thinking she reached the top.
Wish her the best for 2011 but she has to improve so many things in her tennis. Make it more "smart" with real tactic. Only her can make it happen.
She must have determination and big self belief.

Re: **Articles and Interviews **

Qualifiée aux dépens de l’Américaine Coco Vandeweghe (6-2, 6-1), Alizée Cornet n’a pas manqué son entame de tournoi à Melbourne. La Française, qui affrontera l’Espagnole Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez (ESP, n°26), s'est déclarée très contente par sa prestation.

« Je suis très contente. Il faut savoir se satisfaire de toutes les victoires, même si c'était facile aujourd'hui. Le score est révélateur du match. Mais bon, il y a des moments où j'ai dû serrer les boulons. Je ne l'ai pas laissée respirer. C'est une petite jeune mais je suis contente de l'avoir battue et d'avoir tenu mon rang. Je sais que c'est un événement important, avec beaucoup de points à la clé. J'ai essayé de m'enlever tout ça de la tête pour rentrer sur le court en me disant que j'allais me battre sur tous les points, rien lâcher. Le travail que je fais, notamment là-dessus, avec mon entraîneur Laurent Orsini paye. Avec la confiance, le jeu vers l'avant viendra. J'ai travaillé à la volée et déjà, quand j'y viens, je ne me sens pas perdue au filet », a affirmé Alizée Cornet sur le site de la Fédération Française de Tennis.

Re: **Articles and Interviews **

ANTWERP, Belgium - No.7 seed Alizé Cornet survived a late wobble to defeat WTA Rising Star Belinda Bencic in the first round of the BNP Paribas Fortis Diamond Games on Tuesday.

Watch live action from Antwerp this week on WTA Live powered by TennisTV!

After recovering from a disastrous opening set, in which she won just nine points, Cornet appeared to be coasting towards victory when she took an equally one-sided second and then moved 3-1 ahead in the decider. However, with both players struggling to hold onto their serve, a nervous finale was always on the cards.

And so it proved, Bencic hanging doggedly onto Cornet's coattails. The Frenchwoman eventually got across the line, ending a run of four straight breaks to close out a 1-6, 6-2, 7-5 win.

"I have long matches quite often, I have to say," Cornet said. "Today, it was one more fight for me and I'm happy I got through finally. The end of the third set was really tight - there was only two or three points in it - and I was fighting for every point."

Cornet was part of the French Fed Cup team that upset Italy in Genoa last weekend, and the transition from clay to hard was not a seamless one. "In one week you get used to the clay and then you only have a few days to get used to the hard again. Even though the court is pretty slow here, in the beginning of the match, I was completely lost on the court, but I used the weapons I had and in the end it was enough."
