Close to top 100 but never made it (players with best ranking from 101 to 110)

Breaking the top 100 has always been hard and I would try to make a list of the past and current players who never reached the top 100, having a personal best between 101 and 110), the 101 is almost a disgusting place to have, I remember Bethanie Mattek and Stéphanie Dubois being close for a long long time before breaking...

From the past I do remember Tessa Price from South Africa at #101...
Tammy Whittington (USA) : #105
Heather Crowe (USA) : #106
Susan Hagey (USA) : #108
Maeve Quinlan (USA) : #105
Neus Avila (ESP) : #105
Jennifer Santrock (USA) : #103
Nathalie Guerrée (FRA) : #108
Penny Barg (USA) : #104
Federica Haumuller (ARG) : #102
Miriam Schnitzer (GER) : #109
Julie Richardson (NZ) : #102
Allison Bradshaw (USA) : #102
Martina Pawlik (GER) : #106
Siobhan Drake Brockman (AUS) : #109
Vanessa Webb (CAN) : #107
Anna Foldenyi (HUN) : #107
Libuse Prusova (CZE) : #103
Hellas Ter Riet (NED) : #110
Niurka Sodupe (USA) : #108
Michelle Jackson Nobrega (USA) : #108
Laxmi Poruri (USA) : #110
Louise Latimer (GB) : #107
Haruka Inoue (JAP) : #108
Katalin Marosi (HUN) : #101
Katerina Bohmova (CZE) at #107
Yulia Fedossova (FRA) at #107
Jorgelina Cravero (ARG) at #106
Nathalie Vierin (ITA) : #103
Sophie Ferguson (AUS) : #109
Zuzana Kucova (SVK) : #101
Marie-Eve Pelletier (CAN) at #106

Now we have :

Alexa Glatch (USA) : #102
Kristina Kucova (SVK) : #103
Junri Namigata (JAP) : #105
Olivia Rogowska (AUS) : #102
Maria Sanchez (USA) : #107
Maryna Zanevska (UKR) : #107
Maria-Joao Koehler (POR) : #102
Jovana Jaksic (SRB) : #102
Claire Feuerstein (FRA) : #110
Cagla Buyukakcay (TUR) : #108
Lin Zhu (CHN) : #107
Louisa Chirico (USA) : #110
Sachia Vickery (USA) : #108
Patricia Maria Tig (ROM) : #110
Samantha Crawford (USA) : #107
Naomi Osaka (JAP) : #108

I thought Marosi broke into the top 100?
Barbara Mulej got very close, I know she got to at least 112.
Also though Drake Brockman got slightly higher than 109

Omg how embarrasing Julie Richardson was something like the 3rd highest ranked kiwi player ever!

...and yet she never made the top 100 (although to be fair she seemed to focus more on doubles)

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Louise Latimer was about 107 i think, and one win away from the top 100. Shame she never quite made it

Sabine Lisicki is a new candidate at the #101 but I think she's not gonna stay there for a long time!

I believe Sabine Lisicki won't be a member of the "101-110club" anymore after her 1st round win in Berlin!

Monica Niculescu is a new entrant at #108. Yanina Wickmayer, Katie O'Brien, Julia Goerges, Olivia Sanchez and Anne Keothavong are good prospects.

Yes, Fedossova makes a good example. I was so sure she would break top 100 with ease and now she is on the way of falling of top 200 .
