French tennis player who broke into top 20 singles rankings in July 1997. On 7 February 2000, she became the sixth Frenchwoman after Françoise Dürr, Mary Pierce, Nathalie Tauziat, Amélie Mauresmo and Julie Halard to break into the singles top 10 rankings. This marked the first time France had four women ranked in the singles Top 10 simultaneously (Mary Pierce at No. 5, Nathalie Tauziat at No. 6, Julie Halard at no.8 and Testud at No. 9). France was the third nation after the USA and Australia to have more than two representatives in the singles Top 10 at any one time. She finished in the top 20 singles rankings for five consecutive years between 1997 and 2001. In the summer of 2002, she took a break from the tennis circuit when she discovered that she was pregnant with her first child. She resumed her career 12 months after the birth of her child and retired in the summer of 2005.
She won a total of 3 WTA Tour singles and 4 WTA Tour doubles titles. Her biggest singles tournament victory was at the 1998 Tier II tournament in Filderstadt, Germany, where she defeated world number two Lindsay Davenport in the final.
Testud married her coach, Vittorio Magnelli, on 13 June 1998. Their daughter, Isabella, was born on 19 February 2003. Their second child, Sophie, was born in 2006.
