In the year 1977 the career of Morozova and Chmyreva ended because the soviet Union took them off of the circuit because of the boykott against South Africa. The official rankings started in 1975.

In the beginning of the 80's Natasha tried a come back, but not very succesfull and very short.

I think in a way she's a victim of the cold war - that destroyed a probably very big career...

In 1976 she reached the Quarterfinal of the US Open and she played quite succesfull at the Virginia Slim circuit too.

Re: Top100 players by country since the beginning of the wta ranking

Updated with Belarus, Canada, Colombia, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine…

Next to come : Italia, Croatia, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Czech Republic + Czechoslovakia, U.S.S.R and former Yougoslavia

I’m keeping the big ones of Australia and USA for the end

Thanks by advance if you can help me to find the rankings for players lacking this information, feel free to remind me the players I forgot (for Sweden and Great Britain for example)

Re: Top100 players by country since the beginning of the wta ranking

It took me a long time but the list is completed!

Making the USA was the big part but I'm quite satisfied

I will try to improve it again, updating when I can and trying to find the missing players and rankings.

Thanks again for the past and the future help

Thanks.

Yes, she is, but always played for former Yougoslavia on Tour if I'm not wrong. That's why she's not appearing in the slovenian list, but maybe I could add her.

Updated before the FO

A lot of changes may appeared after this GS, many points to gain to get into the top 100 or have a better ranking

Re: Top100 players by country since the beginning of the wta ranking

When did the rankings begin?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
