Keri Wong (born December 25, 1989) is an American former professional tennis player.
Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over or around a net and into the opponent's court. The object of the game is to maneuver the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return. The player who is unable to return the ball will not gain a point, while the opposite player will.
Wong has won seven doubles titles on the ITF circuit. In April 2017, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 866. On April 21, 2014, she peaked at number 156 in the WTA doubles rankings.
