Tennis careerEdit

1998–2013Edit

Marie-Ève has played in one career Grand Slam singles match in 2004, at the Australian Open, qualifying for the tournament before losing in the first round to Japan's Akiko Morigami. She is the previous winner of two events on the ITF Circuit, the 2000 Virginia Beach and 2005 Waikoloa tournaments. Her best result in a WTA Tour event came at the 2005 AP Tourism Hyderabad Open, where she reached the quarterfinals.[2] The biggest win of her career was when she beat then world No. 16 Li Na in straight sets in the first round of the 2006 Rogers Cup.[3] She won in June 2012 the third singles title of her career at the $25,000 ITF in El Paso, beating Ashley Weinhold in the final.[4]

Pelletier retired from tennis on January 9, 2013, after her loss in the first round qualifying at the Australian Open.[1]

Fed CupEdit

Marie-Ève was a regular on Canada's Fed Cup team, playing every year from 2002 to 2008 and again from 2010 to 2012. She amassed a singles record of 9–9 and a doubles record of 16–6 in Fed Cup play.[5]

Life after tennisEdit

Pelletier is now a tennis analyst for TVA Sports, a sports television network in Quebec. She also was a tennis analyst for RDS for the 2013 Rogers Cup and an assistant coach for Tennis Canada's National Training Centre in Montreal. Pelletier married former NHL goaltender Pascal Leclaire in July 2014 and gave birth to their daughter Zoé in May 2015.[6][7]
