Amy Frazier

Amy Frazier ( born September 19, 1972 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a former American tennis player.


Amy Frazier began at the age of seven years with the tennis games. My idol was Chris Evert, whose playing style resembled her later. In 1986, she began as an amateur on the tennis tour. Initial successes they had two years later, when they the top 10 player Pam Shriver defeated in Los Angeles. In 1989 she won in Kansas and won her first WTA title. In Tokyo, she defeated 1990 French Open champion Monica Seles and reached for the first time ranked among the top 15 in the world.

Two years later Frazier reached the first quarter-final of a Grand Slam tournament (Australian Open). At the end of the season they qualified for the Ladies Masters in New York. After a six-month injury lay-off and an associated slipping in the world rankings in 1994, she won the biggest tournament of her career in Los Angeles. In the quarterfinals, she defeated current Wimbledon champion Conchita Martinez 6-4, 7-6. In February 1995, it reached number 13, the highest ranking of her career. In August, it struck at the U.S. Open Mary Pierce and reached for the second time the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament.

Four years later she won again in 1999, a tournament ( Tokyo). That same year, Steffi Graf ended after losing a match against Frazier her career ( 4:6, 7:5, 2:1 Ex. Graf). In 2000, Frazier defeated for the first time a reigning number one when she defeated in San Diego Martina Hingis 6-3, 6-3 and qualified for the Masters. In 2002, she succeeded in Stanford against Jelena Dokić the 25th victory over a top 10 player. 2005 Frazier won in Quebec City their last title. In 2006, she ended her career at the U.S. Open.
