Three french women in the 3rd round of the US open

This is pretty good for the french women, usually the only one left after the 2nd round is marion. Its a shame all of them are in the same section and so only 1 has a shot of going to the quarter final

perhaps we are beginning to see the revival of french tennis on the ladies side?

Re: Three french women in the 3rd round of the US open

Unfortunatly for the FFT, Marion remains their only hope of a top 20 player for the next few years at least methinks.

Well, Parmentier surprised me. Whereas I haven't seen Mladenovic play that often. Maybe once.

Gone are the days of Mauresmo, Pierce, Dechy and Golovin reaching the 3rd round on a consistent basis.

Re: Three french women in the 3rd round of the US open

Marion is the only real french player on the women's tour, regardless of the fft's disowning of her.

Maybe Marion should play for Belgium?!?

Re: Three french women in the 3rd round of the US open

I suggest plastic boobs and a wig for Gasquet, I'm sure he could compete with Serena and save French women tennis.

Well, that's her own fault. She can;t be coached by another coach other than her father even for just what a few matches. Can't she think on her own or is she a 5 year old kid. I would be surprise if any good nations will let her get-away with it. She acted spoiled, even the likes of Venus, Serena, Sharapova, Clijsters and Henin are coached by other coaches during fed cups.

Most at USO since 2008, when 5 made it-Coin, Mauresmo, Cornet, Bremond, Bartoli.
