Julie Ditty (born January 4, 1979, in Atlanta, Georgia) is an American professional tennis player. Ditty did not have her true WTA breakthrough until 2007, when she reached the semifinals of the Bell Challenge, a result that took her into the top 100 for the first time in her career on November 5, 2007, at No. 91. She beat Alizé Cornet and Vania King before falling to Julia Vakulenko in three sets. In 2007, she was drafted by the Boston Lobsters of the WTT pro league.

2008[edit]Edit

In 2008, Ditty qualified for the Gaz de France tournament in Paris where she lost to the Number 6 seed and former world number 1 Amélie Mauresmo. During the Proximus Diamond Gamesin Antwerp, she made it through the first round by defeating Alona Bondarenko, who was seeded eighth, and got to the 2nd round there before falling to qualifier Timea Bacsinszky 7–5 6–4, after having leads in both sets. Her win over world No. 22 Alona Bondarenko was best-ever career win. In August, Julie defeated Meng Yuan in the first round at Cincinnati, marking her first win in a WTA main draw since Antwerp.

2009[edit]Edit

Ditty was named to the United States Fed Cup team for their February 2009 match against Argentina after Bethanie Mattek withdrew with an injury; she played doubles with Liezel Huber. They would win the decisive match for Team USA 6–2, 6–3.

In February, following Fed Cup, Julie lost in the opening round in Midland and Memphis. She did not play in the month of March.

In April, Julie won her opening main draw match in Charleston defeating Ayumi Morita 6–1, 6–1. This would mark her first tour level win for the year. In her next tournament, $75k Dothan, Julie would retire in her opening round against Zi Yan. In doubles, Julie would partner with Carly Gullickson to extend her record of USTA ITF titles to 35 as they would win the doubles title.

In May, Julie would enter the singles qualifying draws in RomeMadridStrasbourg, and the French Open, failing to qualify in all four. In Rome, Julie partnered with Jill Craybas to win their opening round before falling in the second round.

Julie's singles record for the year to date is 4–13.

2010[edit]Edit

Ditty has appeared in the Family Circle Cup, Sony Ericsson Open, and now Wimbledon. Ditty won her first qualifying match against Margalita Chakhnashvili (GEO) 6–4 6–3. She then went on to defeat Jelena Dokić (AUS) 5–7 7–5 6–2 to reach the final round of qualifying. She next faces compatriot Bethanie Mattek-Sands (USA) for a place in the main draw.
