Born 25 August 1981 in Nice, Alpes-Maritimes
Camille Pin is a French tennis player. As of 15 January 2007, she is ranked No. 62 on the WTA Singles Tour.

“Initially, I was trying to stand close to the baseline, and was making mistakes.”

“It is a bit tough to get back into the match after two days of rest. It was tough to make my body wake up. I was feeling very tired.”
-Camille Pin

Camille's 2006 season was rather successful, for a player ranked lower than the top 100 in the women's tour. After a second-round loss to Serena Williams in the Australian Open, she made 3 ITF tour event finals, taking one of the titles at Lexington. She also made some reasonable showings at official WTA Tour events, especially qualifying for the Tier I event at Indian Wells and making the second round. However her 2006 grand slam second round showing at the Australian Open would prove to be her best Grand Slam result of the year, falling in the first round of every other major to tough opponents.

Pin made headlines at the 2007 Australian Open, after playing top seed Maria Sharapova in the first round and coming within two points of winning the match. After recovering from a 0–5 deficit in the final set, Pin eventually lost with a final score of 3–6, 6–4, 7–9.

Pin dated male professional tennis player Arnaud Clément of France.

On 9 March 2008, Camille won the Hilton Cup, defeating American Asia Muhammad 6–4, 6–1.

She is not tall, but she has talent and besides this a pretty face. Over 500,000 dollars were won until now from tennis . She has to train hard and give her best on the tennis court and this ay she can win titles and matches.
