Former top 10 tennis player Coetzer retires

June 18, 2004
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former top 10 player Amanda Coetzer retired Friday after a 16-year tennis career in which she won nine singles and nine doubles titles.

The South African, 32, reached a career-best ranking of No. 3 in 1997, when she reached the semifinals at the Australian Open and French Open, beating Steffi Graf at each. She also beat Graf 6-0, 6-1 that season at Berlin, the worst loss of the Hall of Famer's career.

In 1997, Coetzer became the first player to win three WTA Tour awards in the same year, including for sportsmanship and most improved player.

She beat three women when they were ranked No. 1: Graf, Martina Hingis and Lindsay Davenport.

Playing a limited schedule in 2004, Coetzer went 2-3 in tour events and her ranking slid from 25th to 89th.

``It's been an amazing journey for me,'' Coetzer said in a statement released by her agent. ``I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to play the sport that I love, to travel the world and to meet wonderful people along the way.''
