BiographyEdit

Driehuis played collegiate tennis in the United States, first at Clemson University, before transferring to the University of Florida in 1987.[1] She is a member of the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame.[2]

In the early 1990s she competed as a professional, mainly in doubles, with a best ranking of 87 in the world. As a singles player her most notable achievement was qualifying for the main draw of the 1991 Australian Open, where she lost a close first-round match to Andrea Leand, 6–8 in the third set. She was a regular in the doubles draws of grand slam tournaments and made the quarter-finals of the women's doubles at the 1994 Wimbledon Championships, partnering Maja Murić.

She now works as a lawyer and runs her own firm in Wassenaar.[3]
