Published April 02, 2009 12:00
Twenty-four-year-old Frenchwoman Mathilde Johansson is a player clearly on the way up. Her end-of-year ranking has improved five straight years, she reached the Top 100 for the first time last year and after advancing to the quarterfinals of two clay court events in February - at the Copa Sony Ericsson Colsanitas in Bogotá and the Abierto Mexicano TELCEL presented by HSBC in Acapulco - she reached a career-high of No.64 last month. Head over to her website to learn much more.
Mathilde's home page features catchy music by Armenian-French singer Charles Aznavour and a revolving assortment of on-court and fashionable off-court pictures. Her "News" page focuses on recent matches, including a descriptive account of her recent victory over Sania Mirza at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. Her "Gallery" page consists of montages of her from various venues. The New York ones are quite glamorous, especially the ones taken in Times Square.
Mathilde's "Club" page features a message board for fans to post their comments. Go to her "Schedule" page to track her results for every match she plays and her "Stats" page for career highlights. Of course, there's also a "Bio" page and a "Contact" page.
"I'm very excited to have my own official website now, where I can keep my fans informed of where I am and what I'm doing during the season," Johansson said. "People from around the world can blog me, join my new fan club and soon go to my own store on the site, in French and English."
