Playing for Liechtenstein at the Fed Cup, Vogt has a win-loss record of 20–10.[1]

Biography[edit]

Vogt was born on 15 February 1990 to parents Erika and Ewald (the latter deceased 2007).[2] She began playing tennis at age 5 and after playing with the Swiss junior team for some time, she turned professional in 2006. She simultaneously decided to move to Hungary to train with Zoltan Kuharszky, which would result in reaching the mid-200s of the WTA rankings in 2008. Moreover, it was announced that she had been awarded an invitation spot at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, but she was forced to withdraw due to a patella injury, which further required surgery. Knee rehabilitation took approximately 18 months, during which Vogt finished school before returning to the professional circuit in 2011. She is currently Liechtenstein's highest-ranked player (male or female) and was given the honor of being Liechtenstein's flag bearer during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.[3]

Career[edit]

Vogt had a successful junior career, winning five ITF singles titles, as well as six doubles titles. Her career-high world ranking as a junior was world number five, and she finished her junior career with a record of 79–26.[4]

Her success on the ITF women's circuit in 2008 led to the ITF announcing that she had been given one of the two invitations into the main draw for the Summer Olympics in Beijing.[5] However, she was forced to withdraw through injury and was replaced by Tamarine Tanasugarn.[6]

In 2010 and 2011, she reached six ITF singles finals, winning three in Egypt, Slovenia, and The Netherlands. She also reached five ITF doubles finals, losing all five. At the 2011 Games of the Small States of Europe, held in Liechtenstein, Vogt won three gold medals. She defeated Kathinka von Deichmann in the final of the singles, whilst also partnering with von Deichmann to win the women's doubles. The mixed doubles was won with Jirka Lokaj.[7] This built on her success from the 2007 Games, where she won a gold medal in the singles,[8] before combining with Marina Novak to take silver in the doubles.[9] She did not participate in the 2009 event.

In 2012, Vogt represented Liechtenstein at the Summer Olympics in London. Ranked No. 236, she did not qualify through rankings and was thus given a Tripartite Commission Invitation to play in the singles event. She drew Anna Tatishvili of Georgia and lost 2–6, 0–6. Later in the year, she advanced to the final of an ITF tournament in Netanya, losing to Anna Karolína Schmiedlová in three sets.

Vogt won four ITF singles titles in 2013, the biggest title coming in Biarritz, where she beat Schmiedlová in three sets. Following this win, Vogt cracked the Top-150 for the first time in her career. She was in touching distance of a main-draw berth at the French Open, defeating two players in qualifying before losing out to Czech veteran Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová in straight sets. 1 month after her most recent singles title in Podgorica, she became the first tennis player from Liechtenstein to win a WTA title when she won the BGL Luxembourg Open with Yanina Wickmayer. Her win in Luxembourg catapulted her into the Top-130 doubles rankings.
