Template:Infobox Tennis player Lisa Raymond (born August 10, 1973 in Norristown, Pennsylvania) is a professional female tennis player from the United States. On June 12, 2000, she reached the #1 spot in the world in doubles. Her career high singles ranking was #15 in October 1997.

Earning more than $7 million in prize money in her career, Raymond has reached the quarterfinals in singles at the Australian Open and at Wimbledon. Raymond, who plays right-handed, has wins over Venus Williams, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, Monica Seles and Martina Hingis. She also is one of the few players to win a career Grand Slam in doubles.

Of her four singles titles, two have come at the Cellular South Cup in Memphis, Tennessee.

Though she was the number one-ranked doubles player, she was not selected to the US team for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.[1]

Early career Edit

Raymond achieved significant success in collegiate tennis. She won the NCAA Single's title in 1992 and 1993 playing for the University of Florida Gators, leading the team to the 1992 NCAA Team Championships. Playing for the Florida Gators, she was the first player to win all three collegiate Grand Slams titles in a single season (1992). She received the 1992 Volvo Rookie of the Year award, the 1992 Tennis Magazine Collegiate Player of the Year award, the 1992 and 1993 Broderick Award, and the 1993 Honda Award for collegiate tennis.

As a junior, she won five U.S. National (USTA) singles and doubles titles, and she was ranked #1 in the U.S. for players 18 and under in 1990.
