Seen on the Family circle cup's web site
Will the 2005 FAMILY CIRCLE CUP be lucky for the 13th seeded Tatiana Golovin? As the seventeen year old French youngster makes her FAMILY CIRCLE CUP debut this week, she hopes to continue her forward march through the rankings.
2004 was a major breakthrough season for Tatiana. After only her fifth Sony Ericsson WTA event, she jumped 200 spots in the rankings by knocking out two seeded players as a wildcard entry in the Australian Open.
Tatiana reached the fourth round in both the Australian Open and Wimbledon. She started the year ranked 345 and by year’s end she was ranked 27th and was also named as the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Newcomer of the Year. Tatiana is currently ranked 25th in the world.
Tatiana was born in Russia but her family moved to Lyon, France when she was 8 months old. She is a member of the French Fed Cup team which made it to the Fed Cup finals last year. At age 16, Golovin, along with fellow Frenchman Richard Gasquet (age 17), won the Mixed Doubles Championship at the 2004 French Open becoming the youngest mixed Champions in 23 years.
