MatchesEdit

In 2005, Beltrame was selected by the team leader Georges Goven to play with Mary Pierce, Amélie Mauresmo and Nathalie Dechy for the semifinals of the Fed Cup against Spain when teammate Virginie Razzano was injured and players Marion Bartoli and Émilie Loit were suspended.

On 10 July 2006, Beltrame (as Séverine Brémond) achieved a career-high singles ranking of world No. 65 after her success at the 2006 Wimbledon Championships, where she reached the quarterfinal of a Grand Slam event for the first time. After qualifying for the tournament, she defeated No. 10 Patty Schnyder in the second round, Gisela Dulko in the third round, and Ai Sugiyama in the fourth, losing to Justine Henin-Hardenne 4–6, 4–6.

Her last event for 2006 was the Bell Challenge in Quebec, Canada. Following her run to the semifinals at this event, she broke the top 40 for the first time and landed at her career high ranking of No. 38.

Beltrame entered the 2008 US Open as a wild card, where she beat Julia Görges, Nicole Vaidišová and Tathiana Garbin. She lost to eventual champion Serena Williams (2–6, 2–6) in the fourth round.

She has made the semifinals of the mixed-doubles tournament at Wimbledon of 2007 with Fabrice Santoro.

In May 2013, Beltrame announced that she would be retiring from tennis right after the conclusion of the 2013 French Open.[1]
