Talking Amy Frazier: Circuit Player of the Week

Birthdate: Sept. 19, 1972
Birthplace: St. Louis, Mo.
Residence: Rochester Hills, Mich.
Height: 5’ 8”
Weight: 139 lbs.
Plays: Right-handed; two-handed backhand
Turned pro: January 1990
Veteran pro Amy Frazier has had a remarkable 18-year career on the WTA Tour, and now the 33-year-old veteran has taken her talents back to the USTA Pro Circuit. Last week, Frazier captured the singles title at the $50,000 River Oaks Country Club Women's Challenger in Houston. She cruised through her first four matches without dropping a set and then went on to defeat Anda Perianu of Romania, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, in the final.

Frazier also performed well the week prior to Houston at the $50,000 event in Ashland, Ky. – her first appearance on the USTA Pro Circuit since November 2003. The 5’ 8” right-hander teamed with Teryn Ashley to win the doubles championship at the tournament, where she also advanced to the semifinals in the singles draw. With her results the last two weeks, Frazier has now won a total of nine USTA Circuit titles during her career – four in singles and five in doubles.

Born in St. Louis and a current resident of Rochester Hills, Mich., Frazier has had a sensational run since turning pro in January 1990, winning seven singles and four doubles championships on the WTA Tour. She has notched impressive results in Grand Slam play, reaching quarterfinals at the 1992 Australian Open and the 1995 US Open and advancing to the round of 16 at three of the four Grand Slams – the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open – a total of six times.

A former member of the U.S. Fed Cup team, Frazier has finished in the top 20 of the WTA's year-end rankings six times. She reached a career-high singles rank of No. 13 in February 1995 and is currently listed at No. 71.

The reason why Amy looks pale on court is because she puts a lot of sunscreen. She'd definitely look more tanned off the court, since she won't have sunscreen on.
