Talking Elixane Lechemia

Let's go for another player who improved a lot lately
Elixane Lechemia is a left handed player of 25 years old (born 03sept 1991). She played on tour few years ago before leaving to USA for university-tennis (she stayed several years). Her best was #380 in 2011. But she is a lot more mature than a lot of french players!
And this year she is having good results, she will be at her best next week around #360 (she was #700 at the beginning of the year). She won Loughborough (hard) in october, Petange (hard) in september, Antalya (hard) in may. In Joue les tours (50,000$) she won over Stefkova 4&4, which is a good win ; and she made 2 SF in 25,000$ (Perigueux and Montpellier).
She is a very good friend of Caroline since long time ago.
Her main goal for 2017 is to be in the cut for qualies in GS.
Here an interview from last june, just after the 2 SF in 25,000$ (in french) : Elixane Lechemia : ''Objectif qualifs Grand Chelem !'' | Fédération Française de Tennis

GL!

Re: Elixane Lechemia

I always thought Lechemia had been out for so long because of injuries... so you can't play on the main tour if you play for US universities?
Can she be the next Julie Coin?

Re: Elixane Lechemia

No, she was not injured.
I don't think it is possible to play on tour and to be in university in the same time, not the fact that it is forbidden, but I think it was really easy if there are not so much tournaments around you. Because there are days of class, and competitions are with the university. Not sure there is so much time left after that.
