Lesia Viktorivna Tsurenko (Ukrainian: Леся Вікторівна Цуренко; born 30 May 1989 in Volodymyrets) is a Ukrainian tennis player.

Tsurenko has won six singles and eight doubles titles on the ITF tour in her career. On 15 July 2013, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 60. On 16 August 2010, she peaked at world number 116 in the doubles rankings.[1]

2013[edit]

In 2013, Tsurenko reached the semifinals of the WTA Premier Brisbane International tournament, after entering the draw as a lucky loser replacing Maria Sharapova; she defeated Jarmila Gajdošová and Daniela Hantuchová before losing in three sets to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Having qualified for the main draw of the Australian Open, she again faced Pavlyuchenkova, the 24th seed. This time Tsurenko won in three sets. She then beat fellow qualifier Daria Gavrilova in the second round, but lost to Caroline Wozniacki in the third.

Tsurenko continued her good run of form on the North American hard courts, as she reached the third round at the BNP Paribas Open as a qualifier; she defeated Ayumi Morita and Yaroslava Shvedova before falling to Petra Kvitová.
