Catherine ("Cathy") Tanvier (born 28 May 1965) is a former tennis player from France.

She peaked at number 20 in 1984, and won one singles and nine doubles titles on the WTA Tour.

Career

In 1982, Tanvier became Wimbledon girls' singles champion after defeating first-seeded Helena Suková in the final in straight sets.[1]

Tanvier won one singles title on the WTA Tour, at the 1983 Freiburg Open clay court tournament, defeating Laura Arraya in the final in straight sets.

At the Wimbledon Championships she reached the fourth round in the singles event in 1985, which she lost to eight-seeded Zina Garrison.[2] Reaching the fourth round was also her best singles result at the Australian Open (1989, 1990, 1991) and French Open (1983, 1988).[3] Her best career result at a Grand Slam tournament was reaching the semifinal of the 1983 French Open women's doubles event with Ivanna Madruga.

Tanvier published two biographies; in 2007 she wrote Déclassée - de Roland-Garros au RMI,[a][4] and in 2013 published Détraquements, de la colère à la torpeur.[5][6]

In 2010, she made her debut as an actress in Jean-Luc Godard's Film Socialisme.

She now lives in Nice, France.
