French Open (Ostapenko)

As a player she reached a career-high ranking of world No. 16 in 2009, and won 11 singles and 28 doubles titles, including the 2008 and 2009 French Open with Virginia Ruano Pascual. Like many of her Spanish compatriots, she was a clay-court specialist who grinds to win most of her rallies. However, unlike most of her fellow Spaniards, she preferred to play on hard courts. She won the WTA tournament in Strasbourg, beating Katarina Srebotnik in the final in May 2008, thus defending the title she won the previous year against Amélie Mauresmo. Her other singles titles came at Palermo in 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2001, at Canberra in 2006, Strasbourg in 2005 and Fès in 2009.

After retirement from singles tennis (she continues playing doubles) at the end of the 2014 season, Medina Garrigues became a professional coach, gaining success while working for Jeļena Ostapenko, who won the 2017 French Open Grand Slam title. In late 2017, she was named captain of Spain's Fed Cup team. She has also become tournament organizer at Valencia Open.

CareerEdit

2008Edit

Together with Virginia Ruano Pascual, she won the French Open and the silver medal at the Summer Olympics.

2011Edit

Medina Garrigues began 2011 by losing in the first rounds of ASB Classic, Australian Open, and Copa Sony Ericsson Colsanitas and the qualifying draw of Medibank International Sydney. She then reached her first semifinal in nine months in the Abierto Mexicano Telcel with wins over first seed Julia Görges and seventh seed Carla Suárez Navarro before losing to Gisela Dulko in straight sets. In the BNP Paribas Open she defeated Tamira Paszek before losing to Maria Sharapova.

Garrigues then qualified for the Tournament of Champions and reached the final, but she was defeated by defending champion Ana Ivanovic in two sets.

2012Edit

Medina Garrigues reached the quarterfinals of Sony Swedish Open in Båstad, but lost to Johanna Larsson.[1]

2014Edit

At PTT Pattaya Open, Medina Garrigues lost in the first round to Alison Riske without winning a single game. She announced that the French Open would be her last tournament before retiring from singles tennis, though she would continue to play doubles. Medina Garrigues lost in the second round of qualifying for the French Open to Tereza Smitková in two sets, ending her singles career.

2018Edit

Medina Garrigues received a wildcard spot (via protected ranking) and entered the doubles competition at this year's Madrid Open, partnering fellow Spaniard Arantxa Parra Santonja.
