Career[edit]

2009[edit]

In January, Panova obtained an invitation from the Hong Kong Tennis Patrons' Association to play 2009 JB Group Classic with her compatriot Anna Chakvetadze (she replaced Maria Sharapova for injury) and Vera Zvonareva, and then she entered the Australian Open women's qualifying singles unseeded and made it to the qualifying third round before losing to unseeded Julia Schruff of Germany 7–6, 6–4.

2011[edit]

In August, Panova made her grand slam debut at the US Open by coming through qualifying. In the first round she faced the 8th Seed, Marion Bartoli, a match that she ended up losing 7–5, 6–3.[1]

2012[edit]

In February Panova made it to her first WTA final at the 2012 Copa Sony Ericsson Colsanitas, upsetting the 5th seed Gisela Dulko along the way. She lost to Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino in the final, but won the doubles championship. She then won her second doubles title of the year at the 2012 Grand Prix SAR La Princesse Lalla Meryem.

At the 2012 US Open, Panova faced World No. 1 and eventual runner-up Victoria Azarenka in the first round and was heavily defeated, 0–6, 1–6.[2]

2013[edit]

Panova participated in the 2013 Fed Cup final against Italy. She lost a marathon match against Roberta Vinci in the first rubber 5–7, 7–5, 8–6. Panova squandered a 7–5, 5–2, 40–15 lead. Italy went on to win the Fed cup tie 3–0.

2014[edit]

Panova made a positive start to 2014 by qualifying for the main draw of the 2014 Brisbane International by defeating Katarzyna Piter, Alize Lim and No.3 seed Hsieh Su-wei. In the first round of the main draw she faced Kaia Kanepi and lost in three sets.

Panova won her fourth WTA doubles title at the Baku Cup, partnering with British Heather Watson. In the final they crushed Raluca Olaru and Shahar Pe'er.[3]
