At the 2009 US Open she lost her first round match against Magdaléna Rybáriková in three sets. In 2010, her final year on the Tour, she won three qualifying matches at the Australian Open, but was handily eliminated by Kim Clijsters, former No. 1 and reigning US Open champion, in straight sets. She announced her retirement from professional tennis with immediate effect on December 9, 2010.
