Stéphanie Dubois (born October 31, 1986) is a Canadian professional tennis player. She turned professional in 2004 and she achieved a career-best ranking of No. 87 in the world on January 30, 2012. Dubois was named Female Player of the Year by Tennis Canada at two occasions (2005, 2007).

Tennis career[edit]

2004–07[edit]

Dubois made her first appearance in July 2004 in the Fed Cup World Group Play-offs against Switzerland. She reached her first WTA quarterfinal at the 2005 Challenge Bell in Quebec City. At the Rogers Cup, she defeated Kim Clijsters when Clijsters retired from the match, her biggest win so far. In 2007, Dubois and Renata Voráčová reached the Challenge Bell final but lost to Christina Fusano and Raquel Kops-Jones in straight sets.

2008–10[edit]

In 2008, she got in the main draw of the Australian Open and the French Open, participating in a first in the latter, where two Quebec native players were in the main draw by their own ranking for the first time. In 2008, Dubois had 3 match points against 8th seed Anna Chakvetadze in the first round of Wimbledon but lost with a score of 6–8 in the final set. In 2009, Dubois won the $75,000 ITF Women's Circuit Vancouver Open by beating the top seed Sania Mirza in three sets. Also in 2009, she defeated Kristina Mladenovic in the first round of the US Open, her first main draw win, before losing to Sorana Cîrstea in the second round.[1]

2011–present[edit]

Dubois reached the second round at Wimbledon in 2011 where she lost to World No. 11 Andrea Petkovic in three sets. She reached at the end of July 2011 the second WTA quarterfinal of her career at the Citi Open in College Park, but lost to Tamira Paszek in a match that lasted almost 4 hours. In January 2012, Dubois won her first round match at the Australian Open for the first time, with a win over Elena Vesnina. She lost in the second round to 30th seed Angelique Kerber.
