Aleksandra Wozniak (born September 7, 1987) is a Canadian professional tennis player. She turned professional in November 2005. Wozniak achieved a career-best ranking of no. 21 on June 22, 2009, making her the fourth highest-ranked Canadian singles player of all time.[1] She has won one WTA and nine ITF tournaments. At the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford in 2008, she became the first Canadian in 20 years to capture a WTA singles title and the first Quebecer in history to have accomplished such a feat. She reached a career-high ITF junior ranking of No. 3 on January 31, 2005. Wozniak was named Female Player of the Year by Tennis Canada five times (2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2012).

Early life[edit]

Wozniak's family immigrated to Canada from Poland in 1983. She speaks Polish, English and French fluently. She has an elder sister Dorota who also played tennis.[2] Aleksandra started playing tennis at the age of three. She was inspired to pick up a racquet by her sister and Monica Seles, her idol growing up, and was coached by her father Antoni.[3]

Tennis career[edit]

2002–07: Early years[edit]

In 2002, as a 14-year-old, Wozniak won the Canadian Indoors Under-16 and Under-18 championships.[4] Aleksandra won the Kentucky International Junior Tennis Derby in 2004.[5] In 2005, Wozniak reached no. 3 in the juniors.[6] She also won the Tevlin Challenger 25K tournament in Toronto, the Hamilton Challenger 25K in Canada, the Victoria Challenger 25K and the Junior Casablanca Cup (as well as the doubles) in Mexico, and the Junior Del Cafe Cup (as well as the doubles) in Costa Rica.[5]

In 2006, Wozniak won the Pittsburgh Challenger (defeating Belarusian Victoria Azarenka),[7] and the Ashland Challenger (defeating Hungarian Ágnes Szávay).[7] Wozniak also won the Challenger in Hamilton the same year.[8] In February she beat her first top-100 player, world no. 63 Li Na in Thailand. In November 2006, she defeated her first top-50 player, world no. 40 Olga Puchkova in Pittsburgh.

2008: Breakthrough and first WTA title[edit]

In the first round of the French Open in June, Wozniak made it to the third round, before losing to 11th seed Vera Zvonareva. It was by far her best performance at any of the Grand Slams, and she became the first Québécoise to reach the third round of a Grand Slam since 2002.[9]

In July, Wozniak won her first WTA singles title at the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford, California. During the tournament she beat world no. 20 Francesca Schiavone of Italy, world no. 29 Sybille Bammer, and world no. 5 Serena Williams of the US (who had to retire in the match), before defeating sixth seed Marion Bartoli of France in the final. She was a qualifier to the tournament, so she had to win three qualifying matches and then 5 main draw matches in nine days. Wozniak became the first Canadian in 20 years to win a WTA singles title.[10] The victory vaulted her WTA singles ranking from no. 85 to no. 45 in the world. In August 2008, she was presented with key to the city in Blainville, Québec, by the mayor; they renamed it "Wozniakville" for 24 hours because for the first time a woman from Québec won a Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title (when she won Stanford in July).[11]

She also received an award from the National Assembly of Québec in October 2008 for her career-high ranking of no. 37 and first Tour singles title.[11]

2009: Continued good form, career high Top 25 ranking[edit]

Wozniak was upset by German Sabine Lisicki, also of Polish heritage, in the first round of the Australian Open where Wozniak was the 30th seed. Wozniak joined up with compatriot Daniel Nestor in the mixed doubles, where they made it to the quarterfinals before losing to Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi of India.

In March she defeated world no. 48 Lucie Šafářová in Indian Wells. That month she moved up to a career-best world no. 29. She reached her third singles final in April in the Ponte Vedra Beach, beating world no. 10 Nadia Petrova in the semi-finals, but was then defeated by world no. 12 Caroline Wozniacki. In May, she upset world no. 13 Marion Bartoli of France at the Madrid Open.[12]

At the French Open, Wozniak was the 24th seed and became the first Québécoise to ever be seeded at Roland-Garros. Wozniak made it to the round of 16, before losing to Serena Williams.[13] With her French Open success, Wozniak became Canada's first representative in the fourth round of the French Open women's draw in 17 years, and the first Canadian woman to survive into the second week at the French Open since Patricia Hy-Boulais in 1992. Wozniak was also the first Canadian to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam event since Maureen Drake qualified for the round of 16 at the 1999 Australian Open. "That's awesome for Canada and I hope to keep going", said Wozniak.[14]

She debuted her grass season in June, at the Aegon International in Eastbourne, Wozniak made it to the semifinals, before losing to Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark. After that tournament, Wozniak's ranking rose two spots, to a career high of no. 21.[15] At Wimbledon, she was the first Canadian to be seeded in singles in 20 years at no. 23. However she fell in the first round to Italy's Francesca Schiavone.[16]

At the US Open, she advanced to the third round before losing to tenth seed Flavia Pennetta. Wozniak entered the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo and made it into the third round before losing in three sets to Magdaléna Rybáriková.

Wozniak was named Athlete of the Year for the second time in three years at the Tennis Quebec Excellence Awards. Her father Antoni and fitness trainer André Parent were joint winners of the International Coach of the Year Award for Quebec athletes.[17] She was also named Female Athlete of the Year by the Canadian Press in recognition of her outstanding season.

2010–11: Struggle with form and injuries[edit]

At the 2011 French Open, her first Slam since coming back from injury

In January, Caroline Wozniacki eliminated Wozniak for the sixth time at the 2010 Australian Open in straight sets. After early losses in Miami and Indian Wells, she went to defend her last year final in Ponte Vedra Beach. However, she lost in the quarterfinals to Dominika Cibulková.

At the 2010 French Open, she lost in the third round to fifth seed Elena Dementieva in a match that lasted more than three hours. At 2010 Wimbledon, Wozniak made it to the second round before losing to fourth seed Jelena Janković. After losing in the first round of the 2010 Rogers Cup in her native Quebec against Timea Bacsinszky, she lost again in the first round at the 2010 US Open against world no. 202 Sally Peers in a match that took just 48 minutes. She was out for the remainder of the season due to a forearm injury.[18]

In her first Grand Slam appearance since coming back from injury, Wozniak qualified for the 2011 French Open.

At the French Open, she reached the third round for the fourth time in five years, but lost to World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka.

She was eliminated by Zhang Shuai in the next round.[33]

At the WTA Premier Mandatory BNP Paribas Open in March, Wozniak defeated Urszula Radwańska in her opening match to set up a clash with World No. 15 Sabine Lisicki in the next round.[34] She won in three sets after being down 2–5 in the third set tiebreak, and with Lisicki serving twice for the match.[35] She beat her second straight top-30 player with a victory over Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the third round.[36] She was defeated by World No. 2 Li Na in the round of 16.[37] In Mid-March, Wozniak was awarded a wildcard for the Sony Open Tennis but was eliminated by Caroline Garcia in the first round.[38] At her next tournament, the Monterrey Open in late March, she qualified for the main draw and won her opening match over Marcela Zacarías, but was stopped by World No. 13 Ana Ivanovic in the next round.[39][40]
