PYW Rankings [From Charleston to Lafayette/Cagnes-Sur-Mer] | Updated
Germany's Anna-Lena Grönefeld [#5 | +2] enters the PYW Top 5 for the first time this week, as her final in Charleston, which she lost to Iveta Benesova [#14 | +5], puts her only half a point ahead of Ana Ivanovic [#6 | -1] of Serbia & Montenegro. Grönefeld must be thankful for that one ITF event she played Benesova's title in Charleston was just a confirmation of her excellent form throughout this year. But can she continue to deliver?
Tatiana Golovin [#23 | -7] is suffering from an injury. That tennis is harsh, follows from her drop in the rankings, as the ankle injury did not permit her to defend last year's Charleston points. Katarina Srebotnik [#60 | -5] and Meghann Shaughnessy [#54 | -5] also failed to do well in Charleston this year.
In a shocking ITF Final in Lafayette, Milagros Sequera of Venezuela [#145 | +26] upset Tamarine Tanasugarn. No one expected Sequera to even reach a final, but beating Tanasugarn seemed even more unlikely, especially considering the Thai player [#49 | +5] had claimed the $75K Title in Dothan the week earlier. The third ITF event counting towards this week's ranking was Cagnes-Sur-Mer, a strong $75K event on French clay. There, Tatiana Perebiynis marked a successful comeback after injury with a title, bringing her once more on the verge of the Top 100 [#105 | +19].
