View Full Version : Next french to win a Slam

Jul 31st, 2007, 08:42 PM
I've just realized something about french players and Slams final.

1994: Mary Pierce reached the final of the FO
1995: Mary Pierce won the AO
1997: Mary Pierce reached the final of the AO
Mary Pierce has a two handed backhand

1998: Nathalie Tauziat reached the final of Wimbledon
1999: Amélie Mauresmo reached the final of the AO
Tauziat and Mauresmo have a one handed backand

2000: Mary Pierce won the FO
2005: Mary Pierce reached the final of the FO and the final of the US Open

2006: Amélie Mauresmo won the AO and Wimbledon

2007: Marion Bartoli reached the final of Wimbledon

So the next french player to win a Slam or to reach the final will be a two handed backhand player!

Golovin or Bartoli maybe.

Golovin :D

Mauresmo (HIGH doubts though), or someone we don't know about yet. :)

The next Frenchwoman to win a slam will have a two handed...

Mary Pierce--2008 Australian Open Champion

Jul 31st, 2007, 10:33 PM
The closest is still Mauresmo and no one else.

Jul 31st, 2007, 10:43 PM
Mary or Marion!

Jul 31st, 2007, 11:01 PM
Tatiana. Or Momo.

Sorry, you kids just don't have the prospects. France has a lot of players to crowd the top 100 and some strong candidates for a solid career, but major champions you have not-- well maybe Mauresmo will wake up and win again or Pierce will storm a title.

personally i think Sandrine Testud is going to come out of retirement and fight her way to a USOpen title in 2010:drink: :smoke: :banana: :crazy:

I would say Mauresmo. For some reason I think she will one more slam before her career is over.
Golovin is not ready, and Bartoli is so unpredictable! How about Rezai in a few years?

Amelie Mauresmo , nobody else
