Bio She is an American retired professional tennis player. She turned professional on June 9, 1992. She reached one WTA Tour singles final in her career, finishing runner-up to Åsa Svensson at the Wismilak International in 1999. In April 2000, she reached her career high singles rank of World No. 65.

DeLone won one WTA Tour doubles title in her career, winning the 2000 Heineken Trophy in 's-Hertogenbosch partnering Australian Nicole Pratt. She reached her career high doubles ranking of World No. 45 in December 2000. In 2003 she retired from professional tennis. Her sister Amy was a professional tennis player as well.

In the fall of 1991, deLone was one of the best women tennis players ever to show up at Harvard. She had a spectacular freshman year, not only playing at number one for the Harvard varsity, but ending the season ranked sixth in the nation after ranking as high as number two. A 1992 all-American, she reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA individual tournament. At the National Indoor Championships, she lost in the finals to the University of Florida’s Lisa Raymond, currently one of the top 50 professionals.

Erika deLone had a long pro career, winning nine singles titles and 10 doubles championships in “Challenger”-level events. In 1999 she achieved her highest singles ranking (65th), and at a tournament in Kuala Lumpur, beat the Australian Alicia Molik, currently ranked in the top 10. In 1995, deLone played Monica Seles in the second round of the U.S. Open, right after Seles returned to the tour after having been stabbed in Germany two years earlier. DeLone’s deepest penetration into a Grand Slam draw was the doubles quarterfinals of the Australian Open.

A hard-hitting, aggressive baseliner whose favorite shot is her two-handed backhand, deLone’s quickness and tenacity, plus her strong serve, gave opponents lots of trouble.
