Bibiane Schoofs (born 13 May 1988; previously known as Bibiane Weijers) is a Dutch professional tennis player. On 11 June 2012, she reached her highest WTA singles ranking of 142, whilst her best doubles ranking was 473 on 20 July 2009. She was married on 7 July 2014 and took her husband's surname. In late 2016, Weijers had reverted to her maiden name, Schoofs.

Playing for the Netherlands at the Fed Cup, Schoofs has a win–loss record of 3–6.

2011[edit]

Schoofs' best season so far has been in 2011. She climbed more than 250 places in the rankings and won two 25k ITF tournaments in Montpellier and Middelburg. She also reached the final in Prague and Zwevegem.

At the end of the 2011 season, Schoofs qualified for the 2011 BGL Luxembourg Open, thus making her debut in a WTA event. She played Angelique Kerber in the first round and recorded the biggest win of her career, defeating world number 29 Kerber in three sets, 2–6, 6–2, 6–1 after being down 6–2, 2–0. She then caused another upset against world number 62 Canadian Rebecca Marino, defeating her in the second round in three sets, 1–6, 6–1, 7–5. Her run was ended by British qualifier Anne Keothavong in the quarterfinals where she was beaten 6–3 6–2.

2012[edit]

Schoofs began her year as a qualifier at the 2012 ASB Classic in Auckland, but lost to Mónica Puig, 6–2 6–7 3–6, leading 6–2 5–4 and 6–3 6–7 3–0.

She then played qualifications for the first Grand Slam tournament of the year, the 2012 Australian Open. In a 2.5 hour match, she outlasted Kazakh Yaroslava Shvedova 11–9 in the final set. In the second round she lost to Russian teenager Irina Khromacheva.

In the Fed Cup, Schoofs played four matches, winning two. She then was out for two months after a thigh injury.

She started playing again at an 25k event in Civitavecchia, Italy. She won against Anna Floris, but lost to eventual tournament winner María Teresa Torró Flor in tow sets. In the following week she reached the semifinals at 25k Tunis, defeating Çağla Büyükakçay, Pemra Özgen and Ana Savić all in straight sets. She was beaten in three sets by Poland's Sandra Zaniewska. She played 50k Saint-Gaudens and beat Melanie Oudin and Edina Gallovits-Hall in the first two rounds before losing to former world no. 15 Aravane Rezaï in the quarterfinals.

Schoofs tried to qualify for the main draw of the 2012 French Open. However, she was beaten in three close sets by Uzbekistan's Akgul Amanmuradova, in the first round. Schoofs also tried to qualify for the main draw of the WTA tournament in Birmingham, played on grass. She was beaten in the 1st round by Melanie Oudin, 4–6 6–7(6). This was her 1st match on grass in 7 years. She again played qualifying at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships. She beat Bulgaria's Dia Evtimova 6–2 6–2 and China's Zheng Saisai 6–3 6–3 to reach the final qualifying round of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career. She held 3 setpoints in the first set against Croatia's Mirjana Lučić before succumbing 5–7 4–6.

Schoofs suffered a shock loss at the 25k tournament in Ystad where she was the topseed. The transition from grass to clay was too much to handle for her, as she lost to Austrian Nicole Rottmann in three sets. Schoofs played a 50k claycourt tournament in Versmold, Germany the week after that. She beat French qualifier Anaïs Laurendon 6–4 6–0 in the 1st round. She defeated Leticia Costas 6–4 6–3 in the 2nd round and Kristina Mladenovic 6–2 6–4 in the quarterfinals. She faces former world no. 36 Anastasija Sevastova in the semifinals.
