Former Clemson women's tennis player Julie Coin will make her first career appearance at Wimbledon next week as the draws for the 2009 event were announced on Friday morning. Coin is currently 64th in the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour rankings and will face 14th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia in the opening round, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 22.


By earning a spot in singles at Wimbledon, the Amiens, France native will play in all four Grand Slams within a 12-month span. Coin made tennis history in her Grand Slam debut last August as she upset top-seeded and world #1 Ana Ivanovic in the second round of the US Open. She then advanced to the second round of the 2009 Australian Open in January and won her opening match at the 2009 French Open last month.


Coin led Clemson to back-to-back NCAA Final Four appearances in 2004 and 2005 and reached the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championships in 2004. She was ranked as high as #2 in the ITA Tennis poll during the 2005 season and earned All-America status three times over her career. The native of Amiens, France also helped the Tigers claim the 2004 ACC Championship and was named the conference Player-of-the-Year that season.
