With at least three top 100 players celebrating birthdays next week (Virginie Razzano and Laura Granville on Monday, and Anca Barna on Wednesday), I started looking at player birthdays, and it looks like fans on this board will be doing a lot of celebrating next month.
Why, do you ask? Well, according to the WTA website, at least (meaning I may have not have gotten everybody) 17 players in the top 100 (and at least one retired legend) will be celebrating birthdays next month, including four of the top five. Here they are, in order, by date.
June 1: Justine Henin-Hardenne - 21
4: Janette Husarova - 29
7: Anna Kournikova - 22
8: Kim Clijsters - 20
Nadia Petrova - 21
Angelika Roesch - 26
Lindsay Davenport - 27
9: Emilie Loit - 24
13: Maja Matevzic - 23
14: Steffi Graf - 34 (not active, but still worth mentioning.)
17: Venus Williams - 23
20: Myriam Casanova - 18
23: Marissa Irvin - 23
Francesca Schiavone - 23
Paola Suarez - 27
27: Svetlana Kuznetsova - 18
28: Shinobu Asagoe - 27
30: Tathiana Garbin - 26
This was obviously a very good month for women's tennis.
