matching Mary Pierce's #3 career ranking tying as highest ranked French in open era:)

This was after WIMBLEDON right in 1998? Who was number 1 Hingis?
but Lindsay won the US OPEN that year so I think after that grand
slam it was 1) Hingis 2) Lindsay, 3) Jana....

Wasn't Monica listed as an AMERICAN?

Does anybody know?
