In early 2008 it was Khan who was despatched in the finals of the Liberty Bell and Windy City Opens in the United States. The Mexican did it again in May to win the Subway Goshen Open, but this time Khan was beaten in the semis. Teran then captured another two title at the end of June at Los Angeles Open, and at the Harrow Mexican Open, an event she had developed herself.

Added to her twelve Tour titles are a gold medal in the Pan American Games and four golds in the Central American and Caribbean Games. Teran reached a career-high world ranking of World No. 15 in February 2009.[2][3]

In 2011 Samantha reached the semi-finals of the 2011 World Open, becoming the first Mexican to have done so.
