Below are all the Croatian players who currently have a WTA singles ranking, along with their CH ranking (in parentheses is the year when they first reached that ranking). Players who have reached their CH ranking in 2014 are shown in blue.

Let me know if you spot any mistakes.

Goles and Sasak stopped competing in 1990 and 1987 respectively, so technically never played for CRO (they played for YUG instead).

Muric never reached top 200 in singles; her highest ranking was 204.

I've added Nadin Ercegovic to my list; it looks like she reached a singles CH ranking of 61 while playing for CRO.
