Stéphanie Dubois (born October 31, 1986) is a Canadian retired tennis player. She turned professional in 2004 and achieved a career-best ranking of No. 87 in the world in January 2012.

Tennis career

2004-07

Dubois made her first appearance in July 2004 in the Fed Cup World Group Play-offs against Switzerland. She reached her first WTA quarterfinal at the 2005 Challenge Bell in Quebec City. At the 2006 Rogers Cup, she scored the biggest win of her career when she defeated Kim Clijsters (who retired from the match), to reach the third round. In 2007, Dubois and Renata Vorá?ová reached the Challenge Bell final but lost to Christina Fusano and Raquel Kops-Jones in straight sets.

2008-10

In 2008, she got in the main draw of the Australian Open and the French Open, participating in a first in the latter, where two Quebec native players were in the main draw by their own ranking for the first time. Also in 2008, Dubois had three match points against eighth seed Anna Chakvetadze in the first round of Wimbledon but lost with a score of 6-8 in the final set. She also reached the third round of the 2008 Rogers Cup for the second time of her career with a victory over world No. 20 Maria Kirilenko.[3] In 2009, Dubois won the $75,000 ITF Vancouver Open by beating the top seed Sania Mirza in three sets. Also in 2009, she defeated Kristina Mladenovic in the first round of the US Open, her first Grand Slam main-draw win, before losing to Sorana Cîrstea in the second round.[4]

2011-14

Dubois reached the second round at Wimbledon in 2011 where she lost to world No. 11 Andrea Petkovic in three sets. She reached at the end of July 2011 the second WTA quarterfinal of her career at the Citi Open in College Park, but lost to Tamira Paszek in a match that lasted almost four hours. In January 2012, Dubois won her first-round match at the Australian Open for the first time, with a win over Elena Vesnina. She lost in the second round to 30th seed Angelique Kerber. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she teamed with Aleksandra Wozniak to represent Canada in the women's doubles; they lost in the opening round.[5]

In September 2014, Dubois retired from tennis after losing in the first round of the Coupe Banque Nationale.[2]

Life after tennis

In the spring of 2015, Dubois studied in communication at Promédia. She married British Oliver Sheath in July 2015 and gave birth to their daughter Alicia in April 2017. Dubois lives in London and is working as a tennis analyst for the WTA. She also has a level-3 coach certification from the LTA.[1]
