Stephanie Foretz Gacon becomes 38th woman in the Open Era to reach 500 wins!

By beating Zakarlyuk in Andrezieux-Boutheon she scored her 500th win on WTA/ITF level.
I know many will say 'Who?' & ITF vulture and whatever. I know most of her wins are not all that impressive.
But since only 9 other active women and only 37 women in total reached this number of wins, it is still something nice to do.
So congrats Stephanie.

In my books it's only WTA matches that should count. Including her ITF wins doesn't count. How many main draw WTA matches has she won?

Maybe Steph is the only one on this list besides Martina I who wore glasses (prescription ones, not sunglasses ala Maureen Drake) oncourt?

Counting ITF and qualifying matches for this is a complete joke. Only WTA main draw matches should be counted.

Damn right, because she didn't have to step on court to win those matches and even if she had to, players in WTA Q and ITFs are so much worse than her that those wins can basically be discarded... oh wait, not.

Excellent feat by a very hard-working player I've said it before and I'll said it again, had the surfaces not been slowed down drastically over the years, Foretz would have achieved a lot more.

The n let's count every other player ps ITF / qualies wins to their career record. Foretz is the ultimate journey women with no weapons and probably barely broke even on tennis costs.

She's actually a brainless ballbasher so she does have weapons. And they count in their career record too.
