Shelby Rogers (born October 13, 1992) is an American professional tennis player. She won the girls junior national championship at 17. Her best result on the WTA Tour came at the 2016 French Open where she reached the quarterfinals.
Rogers followed her sister, Sabra, into tennis at the age of 6. She was quickly identified by her coaches for her natural athletic ability and started competing on the national stage by the age of 11. Home-schooled during high school, Rogers was able to focus on her tennis and quickly started receiving scholarship offers from the top schools in the US. In 2009, she decided to forgo college and become a professional tennis player. She is good friends with fellow American players Coco Vandeweghe and Irina Falconi.
Her tennis idol is Steffi Graf.
In 2010, Rogers won the USTA 18s Girls National Championship to earn a wild card into the U.S. Open, her first appearance in the main draw of a Grand Slam. She lost to Peng Shuai in the first round in three sets.
Rogers earned another wild card into the main draw of the 2013 French Open three years later by winning the Har-Tru USTA Pro Circuit Wild Card Challenge. With the wild card, she won her first career Grand Slam match over Irena Pavlovic.
She finished 2014 ranked inside the Top 100 at No. 72.
In 2015, Rogers played in all four Grand Slam main draws for the first time in her career, reaching the 3rd round at the U.S. Open.
At the French Open, she continued her success on clay by becoming the first American other than Serena Williams to reach the quarterfinals since Venus Williams in 2006. Along the way, she defeated three seeded players including No. 12 Petra Kvitová. With this run, she also rose to a career high ranking inside the Top 60.
