Yes you're right, pretty disapointing fact...only 3 girls in thp Top 100 now
In comparaison, last year they were 8 in the Top 100...
Many reason to that slump: some Top girls retired (Amelie), some other are getting older and aren't able to keep the rising level of young guns (Severine), some of them for inconstancy (like Julie)injury (Virginie) and at least, no new comers!
At least let be optimistic, there will be a 4th girl in the Top 100 with Pauline at n°96.
there're also positive perspective with Virginie back on track who reached the 3rd rd after her long injury. If she keeps playing like she did, she may be back to the Top 100 soon.
There's also Olivia Mathilde Johansson seems also to have recover good confidence with nice results on the ITF (she was n°251 in May, she should be back in the Top 150 next week).
Re: Top 20 french players-update every beginning of the month!
Yeah pretty average level from the french tennis if compared with the men
with so many french in top100 , reaching at least the first round of slam.
On the women side it is with none get beyond the qualies, the best(virginie) reached 3rd round.
where gone the time of many french in top10-15(tauziat,halard,testud,pierce,mauresmo...),
As for the newcomers, well kiki is still injured and played quite nothing this season, something like 3 tournaments. I think she'll play at the end of this month... Hopefully.
