Julie Coin (French pronunciation: ​[ʒyli kwɛ̃]; born 2 December 1982[1][2] in Amiens, France) is a French professional tennis player. Coin recorded the biggest win of her career by defeating the world no. 1 ranked female singles player, and top seed, Ana Ivanovic at the 2008 US Open.[3][4][5] Her career-high singles ranking is world no. 60, achieved on 27 July 2009. Her career-high doubles ranking is world no. 49, achieved on 19 April 2010.

Family[edit]

Her parents are Philippe and Doriane Coin. They were competitive team handball players.[6]

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Coin played at Clemson University, where she was an All-American, All-ACC, and ACC Player of the Year.[7] She also holds numerous Clemson Women's Tennis records.[7] Coin graduated from Clemson with a degree in mathematics.[8]

2008[edit]

Coin and her doubles partner, Violette Huck, made it to the second round of the 2008 French Open women's doubles tournament.[1] Coin's breakthrough came at the 2008 US Open when she was ranked 188th in the world.[5] She entered the main draw as a qualifier after defeating Amanda McDowell, Sesil Karatantcheva, and Elena Baltacha in the qualification rounds.[9] This was the first time she had entered the main draw in singles at a WTA tournament.[10] In the first round, she defeated Australian Casey Dellacqua 7–6(6), 7–6(4).[9] Coin then rose to prominence and made worldwide headlines when she defeated World No. 1 and top-seeded Ana Ivanovic in the second round[3][4][5] 6–3, 4–6, 6–3. ESPN[3] and Sports Illustrated[5] both called the win one of the greatest upsets in tennis history. Unfortunately, her parents only got to watch highlights of the match since Amélie Mauresmo, who was playing at the same time, was the one shown on French television.

Prior to Coin's upset victory, it had been 41 years since the top-seed had lost so early at the US Open,[3][4][5] the previous time being when Maria Bueno lost in the second round of the 1967 U.S. National Championships.[4] At the time of her victory against Ivanovic, Coin was ranked World No. 188.[11]

She then lost 4–6, 4–6 to compatriot Amélie Mauresmo in the third round.

2009[edit]

Coin took on Amélie Mauresmo in the second round of woman's singles at 2009 Brisbane International. The women played for approximately 3 hours, with Mauresmo eventually winning, 5–7, 6–2, 7–6 (11), after Coin held match points.

Coin beat Elena Vesnina 6–4, 4–6, 6–1 in the first round at the 2009 Australian Open.

Coin fought hard, but ultimately fell to No. 14 Dominika Cibulková in three sets at the 2009 Wimbledon Championships.

2010[edit]

In the first round of the Australian Open Coin recovered from a set down to defeat local favorite Alicia Molik 3–6, 7–6, 6–3 before losing in straight sets in the next round to Francesca Schiavone 6–3, 6–4.
