Ana Isabel "Anabel" Medina Garrigues (Spanish: [anaˈβel meˈðina ɣaˈriɣes], Valencian: [anaˈβɛɫ meˈðina ɣaˈriɣes]; born 31 July 1982 in Torrent, Valencia) is a Spanish female tennis player. She reached a career high WTA Tour ranking of No. 16 on 4 May 2009, and has won 17 singles titles and 26 doubles titles, including the 2008 French Open and 2009 French Open with Virginia Ruano Pascual. Like many of her Spanish compatriots, she is a clay court specialist who grinds to win most of her rallies. However, unlike most of her fellow Spaniards, she prefers to play on hard courts. She won the WTA tournament in Strasbourg, France, beating Katarina Srebotnik in the final in May 2008, thus defending the title she won the previous year against Amélie Mauresmo. Her other singles titles came in Palermo in 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2001; Canberra in 2006; Strasbourg in 2005 and Fès in 2009.

Career

2008

Together with Virginia Ruano Pascual, she wins the French Open and the silver medal at the Summer Olympics.

2011

Anabel began 2011 by losing in the first rounds of 2011 ASB Classic, 2011 Australian Open, and 2011 Copa Sony Ericsson Colsanitas and the qualifying draw of 2011 Medibank International Sydney. She then reached her first semifinal in 9 months in the 2011 Abierto Mexicano Telcel with wins over 1st seed Julia Görges and 7th seed Carla Suárez Navarro before losing to Gisela Dulko in straight sets. In the 2011 BNP Paribas Open she defeated Tamira Paszek before losing to Maria Sharapova.

Garrigues then qualified for the 2011 Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions and reached the final, but she was defeated by defending champion Ana Ivanovic in two sets.

2012

Anabel reached the quarterfinal of Sony Swedish Open, Bastad, but lost to Johanna Larsson.[1]

2014

At PTT Pattaya Open, Anabel lost in the first round to Alison Riske without winning a single game. She announced that the 2014 French Open would be her last tournament before retiring from singles tennis, though she would continue to play doubles. Anabel lost in the second in the second round of qualifying to Tereza Smitková in two sets, ending her singles career.
