Lina Vladimirovna Krasnoroutskaya (Russian: Лина Красноруцкая; krahs-nah-ROOTS-kah-yuh; born 29 April 1984 in Obninsk, Russia, Soviet Union) is a former Junior World Number 1 (1999) tennis player. In addition to gaining the coveted top spot, Lina won the US Open Junior title. She has however had a career blighted by injury.
However a shoulder injury at the end of 2003, then a liver condition in 2004, followed by stomach problems at the start of 2005 meant that she had considered (March 2005) whether to continue on the pro tour. In June 2005 she announced she would be returning, but that the return would be delayed until after the birth of her first baby in November 2005.
Despite her injuries, she has earned almost $1 million in prize money, has represented her country at both junior and senior level, reached a WTA Tier I final in Canada (2003), a semi-final appearance at Wimbledon in the doubles with Elena Dementieva (having beaten the Williams sisters on centre court in the 3rd round) and runner-up at the US Open in 2003 in the mixed doubles with Daniel Nestor, who had 3 match points.
She is presently a commentator on Russian TV, for NTV Plus.
