Olivia SANCHEZ

Born 17th november 1982

after an average junior career, Olivia started to play well at age 20, most of the time on clay and in Europe, she reached her best ranking in 2003 at #260 but injuries in 2004 and 2005 had stopped her from playing tennis

She came back in may and reached the final in Vic. That was the beginning of her resurection, in less than 5 months she has lived her best season so far with impressive runs in french itf's (10K, 25K, 50K and 75K!, if there were a ranking only for french tournaments she would be #1 by far!! )

So far she has collected 32 wins for only 7 defeats

After her 2nd title of the year and most important of career today in Madrid, I hope she will build on it and break into the top 200 before the end of the year

You can find interviews and extracts from her matches on the official Denain tournament website, from what I saw before and on this site, Olivia is a classic baseliner with forehand as her best weapon, she doesn't seem to be the most charismatic or sympathetic player, maybe she's shy, but her 2006 run has been impressive, reminds me of Céline Beigbeder who came from nowhere in 2001 to reach the top 100

I hope Olivia will try to travel to other countries in 2007, because she's visited 5 so far (Spain, Italy, Great Britain, Belgium and France, but that can be explained by the fact she doesn't have sponsors to help her travelling all year, hope she will have one soon)

Congrats for your best title Olivia, do well in your last tournaments, crack the top 200 and come back strong to play AO qualies in 2007!

Olivia will play her very first wta tournament in the MD in Tashkent thanks to the feed up she got with her final in Vittel, she will face Alberta Brianti

Outside France and not on clay! rapid change! Good luck!

She lost against Poutchkova in the 2nd round 7-6 6-1.
Anyway she lost her 1st match in a Wta tourney in her first tournament. Good luck for the end of the season

Re: Olivia SANCHEZ

She is unobtrusive but efficient.
She defeated Lilia Osterloh 61 62 at the AO.
