On 11 June 2012, she reached her highest WTA singles ranking of world No. 142, whilst her best doubles ranking was No. 83 on 2 April 2018. She married on 7 July 2014, and took her husband's surname, however in late 2016 reverted to her maiden name, Schoofs. In December 2016, she became national singles champion under that name.[1][2]

She has won eight ITF singles tournaments, three of them in 2011. In the doubles she has won 17 ITF titles, three of them in 2017. At age 29, she won the doubles title at the 2017 Mumbai Open,[3][4] a tournament on the Challenger-level. In January 2018, she won her first WTA doubles title at the tournament of Auckland.[5]

Playing for the Netherlands at the Fed Cup, Schoofs has a win–loss record of 3–9.

2011Edit

Her best season so far has been in 2011. She climbed more than 250 places in the rankings and won two 25k tournaments, in Montpellier and Middelburg. She also reached the finals in Prague and Zwevegem.

At the end of the season, Schoofs qualified for the 2011 BGL Luxembourg Open, thus making her debut in a WTA event. She played Angelique Kerber in the first round and recorded the biggest win of her career, defeating the world No. 29 in three sets, 2–6, 6–2, 6–1 after being down 6–2, 2–0. She then caused another upset against world No. 62, Canadian Rebecca Marino, defeating her in the second round in three sets, 1–6, 6–1, 7–5. Her run was ended by British qualifier Anne Keothavong in the quarterfinals where she was beaten 6–3, 6–2.

2012Edit

Schoofs began her year as a qualifier at the ASB Classic in Auckland, but lost to Monica Puig 6–2, 6–7, 3–6, leading 6–2, 5–4 and 6–2, 6–7, 3–0.

She then played qualifications for the Australian Open. In a 2.5 hour match, she outlasted Kazakh Yaroslava Shvedova 11–9 in the final set. In the second round she lost to Russian teenager Irina Khromacheva.

In the Fed Cup, Schoofs played four matches, winning two. She then was out for two months after a thigh injury.

She started playing again at a 25k event in Civitavecchia, Italy. She won against Anna Floris, but lost to eventual tournament winner María Teresa Torró Flor in two sets. In the following week, she reached the semifinals at 25k Tunis defeating Çağla Büyükakçay, Pemra Özgen and Ana Savić all in straight sets. She was beaten in three sets by Poland's Sandra Zaniewska. She played at 50k Saint-Gaudens and beat Melanie Oudin and Edina Gallovits-Hall in the first two rounds before losing to former world No. 15 Aravane Rezaï in the quarterfinals.

Schoofs tried to qualify for the main draw of the French Open. However, she was beaten in three close sets by Uzbekistan's Akgul Amanmuradova in the first round. Schoofs also tried to qualify for the main draw of the WTA tournament in Birmingham, played on grass. She was beaten in the first round by Melanie Oudin, 6–4, 7–6. This was her first match on grass in seven years. She again played qualifying at the Wimbledon Championships. She beat Dia Evtimova 6–2, 6–2 and Zheng Saisai 6–3, 6–3 to reach the final qualifying round of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in her career. She held three setpoints in the first set against Mirjana Lučić before succumbing 5–7, 4–6.

Schoofs suffered a shock loss at the 25k tournament in Ystad where she was the top-seed. The transition from grass to clay was too difficult to handle for her, as she lost to Austrian Nicole Rottmann in three sets. Schoofs played a 50k claycourt tournament in Versmold, Germany the week after that. She beat French qualifier Anaïs Laurendon 6–4, 6–0 in the first round. She defeated Leticia Costas 6–4, 6–3 in the second round and Kristina Mladenovic 6–2, 6–4 in the quarterfinals. She faces former world No. 36 Anastasija Sevastova in the semifinals.

2018Edit

Schoofs won the doubles title of the WTA tournament in Auckland together with her partner, five-time Grand Slam winner Sara Errani. With this victory, Schoofs entered the top 100 of the WTA listing in the women's doubles.

At the qualification for the Australian Open, Schoofs defeated No. 119 of the world Naomi Broady in the second round with 7–6, 6–2, but lost in the third and final round against Ivana Jorović with two times 3–6.
