Suchanan Viratprasert or “Jan” to her friends in and off the tennis circle, is an ex WTA Player who reached her best WTA career ranking of 172 in Singles on 9th August 2004. With 9 ITF Womens Singles and 6 Doubles Pro Circuit titles under her belt, Jan has appeared in qualifying rounds of all the four Grand Slams.

Jan played the US Open and Australian Open Junior Grand Slams early on in her Juniors career and later went on to represent Thailand in the Fed Cup for 8 years, from 2001 – 2009. Jan helped the Thailand team join the World Group II in 2005 and 2006, after beating Australia and Croatia in their play-off matches.

In 2004, she helped the Thailand team gain promotion to World Group II, defeated the No.1 Australian player and world No.41 in three sets 6–2, 1–6, 6–1. In 2005, she beat the Croatian world No.96 Sanda Mamić in straight sets, 6–3, 7–6(1). Thailand finally lost to Croatia 2–3, but remained in World Group II. Jan Viratprasert played the world No.15 Nicole Vaidišová in the opening rubber match, but lost in three sets 6–3, 2–6, 0–6. But on the next day of play, she beat the world No.45 Iveta Benešová 6–4, 6–4.

Her best Doubles ranking was 357 in Feb 2004. In the regional achievements, Jan won the SEA Games Singles and Doubles titles a number of times.

To stay in touch with the game she loves and give back some of the experience she gathered over a number of years, Jan took up coaching by clearing the ITF Level 1 Coaches Course held in Bangkok. She recently participated in the ITF Regional Level 2 Coaches Course for training Advance Level Players in Bangkok Thailand.

Currently Jan coaches at the Bangkok Patana School, where she has been working with the Girls team for the last four years. The girls team of the school being coached by her are the SEA Schools Champions for the last four years, which means Jan is really giving a lot of her experience into the girls.

She takes to Europe her sea of experience and we are sure hopeful that Jan will justify her presence as the Team Coach for Girls.
