Career[edit]

Junior (2006–2009)[edit]

Jocelyn Rae played her first match on the junior ITF circuit in April 2006 and continued to compete as a junior until July 2009. During this time, her greatest successes came in doubles although she did win one title at the 2006 Egypt International Championships. She also reached one semifinal and three quarterfinals in singles. In doubles Rae won three titles (two with Hannah James and one with Amanda Elliott) as well as reaching one more final and three semifinals, one of which was in the 2008 Wimbledon girls' doubles partnering Jade Curtis. They lost, 6–4 3–6 4–6, to Polona Hercog and Jessica Moore, the sixth seeded team who went on to win the title. Rae ended her junior career with win-loss records of 21–18 in singles and 26–14 in doubles. Her career-high combined junior ranking was world no. 167, which she achieved on 23 April 2007.[2]

In February 2014, Rae received her first call up to the British Fed Cup Team, following Laura Robson's withdrawal due to injury.

In July, Rae reached her first WTA doubles final at the Swedish Open, partnering Anna Smith.
