BiographyEdit

Vogt was born on 15 February 1990 to parents Erika and Ewald (the latter died 2007).[2] She began playing tennis at age 5 and after playing with the Swiss junior team for some time, she turned professional in 2006. She simultaneously decided to move to Hungary to train with Zoltan Kuharszky, which would result in reaching the mid-200s of the WTA rankings in 2008. She was awarded an invitation spot at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, but she was forced to withdraw due to a patella injury, which further required surgery. Knee rehabilitation took approximately 18 months, during which Vogt finished school before returning to the professional circuit in 2011. Vogt was given the honor of being Liechtenstein's flag bearer during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London[3] and also represented Liechtenstein at the 2016 Summer Olympics. By the time of her retirement in August 2016, she was the highest-ranked tennis player to ever represent her country.

CareerEdit

Vogt had a successful junior career, winning five ITF singles titles, as well as six doubles titles. Her career-high world ranking as a junior was world number five, and she finished her junior career with a record of 79–26.[4]

Her success on the ITF women's circuit in 2008 led to the ITF announcing that she had been given one of the two invitations into the main draw for the Summer Olympics in Beijing.[5] However, she was forced to withdraw through injury and was replaced by Tamarine Tanasugarn.[6]

2010 – 2011Edit

She reached six ITF singles finals, winning three in Egypt, Slovenia, and The Netherlands. She also reached five ITF doubles finals, losing all five. At the 2011 Games of the Small States of Europe, held in Liechtenstein, Vogt won three gold medals. She defeated Kathinka von Deichmann in the final of the singles, whilst also partnering with von Deichmann to win the women's doubles. The mixed doubles was won with Jirka Lokaj.[7] This built on her success from the 2007 Games, where she won a gold medal in the singles,[8] before combining with Marina Novak to take silver in the doubles.[9] She did not participate in the 2009 event.

2012Edit

Vogt represented Liechtenstein at the Summer Olympics in London. Ranked No. 236, she did not qualify through rankings and was thus given a Tripartite Commission Invitation to play in the singles event. She drew Anna Tatishvili of Georgia in the first round and lost 2–6, 0–6. In the ITF series, she won two tournaments, in Bath and Aschaffenburg, but reached the final at Tessenderlo and Netanya, losing to Anna Karolína Schmiedlová in three sets.

2013 First WTA titleEdit

In July she won her biggest title to date in Biarritz, where she beat Schmiedlová in three sets. Following this win, Vogt cracked the Top-150 for the first time in her career. She was in touching distance of a main-draw berth at the French Open, defeating two players in qualifying before losing out to Czech veteran Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová in straight sets. One month later she won another singles title in Podgorica, Estonian Anett Kontaveit of 6–4, 6–3.

In October, she took part in the qualification of the WTA tournament in Linz in Austria, where she defeated the American Christina McHaleon in the first round, 7–5, 6–3, but lost in the second round against the Polish player Katarzyna Piter, 7–6, 4–6, 6–4. In the doubles in Linz she teamed with Belgian Yanina Wickmayer, losing to the pair of German Mona Barthel and Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu, 6–4, 4–6, 10–7. The following week, she played in the qualifiers for the WTA tournament in Luxembourg, she beat British Melanie South in the first round, 6–1, 6–2, but lost in the second round against the Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck 5–7, 6–2, 6–4. In the doubles, again with Yanina Wickmayer, in the first round they defeated the pairing of the Spanish Lourdes Domínguez Lino and Romanian Monica Niculescu, 6–3, 4–6, 12–10. In the quarterfinals, they beat the Latvian Līga Dekmeijere and American Christina McHale, 7–6, 4–6, 10–3. They were supposed to face Slovenian Polona Hercog and American Lisa Raymond in the semi-finals but the other pair were forced to withdraw, enabling Vogt and Wickmayer to reach the final of the tournament. There, they faced Kristina Barrois and Laura Thorpe, winning 7- 6, 6–4.

2015Edit

In April, she played in Stuttgart in Germany but lost in the first round to the Czech Kateřina Siniaková. Playing doubles with the Croatian Petra Martic, Vogt reached the semi-finals before she and Martic were beaten by Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Šafářová. In the first round they beat the team of Swiss Martina Hingis and Indian Sania Mirza.

In July, she bowed out in the semi-finals of the German tournament in Versmold. She then bowed out in the first round of the qualifications for Bad Gastein in Austria but won the doubles title there with Danka Kovinic.

2016 – RetirementEdit

In January, she won the doubles tournament in Hong Kong, earning $25,000 prize money along with the Swiss Viktorija Golubic. She then bowed out in the first qualifying round of the Australian Open as she lost to Australian Arina Rodionova 6–4, 6–1. In doubles, she and her partner, the American Maria Sanchez got through to the finals of the tournament where they beat Croatian Darija Jurak and American Nicole Melichar 6–3, 2–6, 7–6 in the first round, making this Vogt's first victory in the final table of a Grand Slam. Vogt did bow out sharply however in the second round when she and Sanchez lost to the French pair Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic 6–2, 6–1.

In August, Vogt participated in her second Olympics. She lost in the first round to British Johanna Konta 6–3, 6–1. Afterwards Vogt later announced her retirement from professional tennis.[10]
