Shelby Rogers (born October 13, 1992) is an American tennis player from Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. She won the Girls National Championship at 17. Her best results as a professional came at the 2016 French Open and the 2020 US Open where she reached the quarterfinals. She has a career-high WTA singles ranking of No. 48, while her highest doubles ranking is No. 101. She has won 6 singles titles and 2 doubles titles on the ITF Circuit.
Rogers is noted for her victories against the top-ranking players which include Simona Halep (#4) at the 2017 Australian Open and Serena Williams (#9) at the 2020 Top Seed Open. Rogers also owns a spotless record over two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitová, the wins coming at the 2016 French Open and 2020 US Open, the latter in which she saved four match points. Both are also the only instances in her career where she made the second week, and quarterfinals at the majors.
Rogers followed her sister, Sabra, into tennis at the age of six. She was quickly identified by her coaches for her natural athletic ability and started competing on the national stage by the age of eleven. 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 U.S. 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.
In 2010, Rogers won the USTA 18s Girls National Championship to earn a wildcard into the US Open, her first appearance in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament. 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 reached her maiden WTA final the following year at the Gastein Ladies where she lost to Andrea Petkovic. She then scored her first career top 10 win after beating Eugenie Bouchard in the second round of the Rogers Cup, and then finished the year ranked inside the top 100 at No. 72.
Rogers played in all four Grand Slam main draws for the first time in her career, reaching the third round at the US Open.
Although she missed the Australian Open due to injury, Rogers began the year strongly by reaching her second career final on the WTA Tour, losing to Francesca Schiavone at the Rio Open on clay in February.
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.
After battling a knee injury for some time, Rogers underwent knee surgery in May 2018. She was out of play for the rest of the season.
She returned to action at the Volvo Car Open in April and won her first match, defeating Evgeniya Rodina, 6-4, 6-2. However, she lost her next match to Jelena Ostapenko in three sets despite having been 5-1 up in the third set and having match points.
Rogers enjoyed a successful campaign on American hardcourts in the summer. Firstly, she made the semifinals at the Top Seed Open after upsetting Serena Williams in the previous round. Then, at the US Open, she beat Irina Khromacheva, 11th seed Elena Rybakina, Madison Brengle, and sixth seed Petra Kvitová before losing to Naomi Osaka in the quarterfinals. She returned to the top 60 rankings after that.
Only main-draw results in WTA Tour, Grand Slam tournaments, Fed Cup and Olympic Games are included in Win-Loss records.
