I thought she called it a career after her RG win in 1999, but apparently not then.

She would be 'famous' in degenerate tennis gambling circles, but otherwise no. Its actually pretty decent trivia, but hard.

Amy Frazier.

"Frazier has the distinction of being the last woman to play against Steffi Graf in a professional WTA tour match at the 1999 TIG Tennis Classic, played at the La Costa Resort and Spa outside San Diego. During the third set, Graf retired and never played again."

Happy
article on this:
http://articles.latimes.com/1999/aug/04/sports/sp-62572
also in that:
Kournikova was asked if she noticed all the photographers at her match, if she noticed the shirtless guys in the top row with letters on their chest spelling out K-O-U-R-N-I-K-O-V-A, the ones who might need to think about getting a summer job.
She was asked if she minded being referred to as a sex symbol, and, even less sensitively, she was asked if her clothes were a little less, um, sexy than in the past.
That was it, finally. "Is that all you want to ask me about," Kournikova said, staring down a local reporter.

Great article!

Although you forgot the concluding remark:

But that's how it is when you are 18 years old, tall, tanned, beautiful and earning millions of dollars in endorsement money despite never winning a professional tennis tournament.

It looks as though Svitolina has regressed since we last saw here, but perhaps that more to do with the surface. But if she keeps up the hard work and applies herself maybe one day she'll be competing at Buzarnescu's level.
