Renáta Tomanová (born 9 December 1954 in Jindřichův Hradec) is a former professional tennis player from Czechoslovakia.

Career[edit]

Tomanová won the girls' singles title at the 1972 French Open.

In 1975 she and Martina Navratilova represented Czechoslovakia in the Federation Cup, the international women's team competition. They won the cup after beating the Australian team 3–0 in the final of the World Group.[1] Between 195 and 1981 she played in 18 ties for the Czechoslovakian team and complied a 20–7 win-loss record. In May 1975 she won the singles title at the West German Championships in Hamburg after a close three-set final against Kazuko Sawamatsu.[2] In 1976, Tomanová reached the singles final at both the French Open and the Australian Open. She lost at the French Open to Sue Barker 6–2, 0–6, 6–2 and at the Australian Open to Evonne Goolagong Cawley 6–2, 6–2.[3][4] Tomanová also reached the women's doubles final at the Australian Open with her partner Lesley Turner Bowrey, where they lost to Goolagong and Helen Gourlay Cawley.

In May 1977 she reached the final of the Italian Open in which she was defeated in straight sets by Janet Newberry Wright.[5] In 1978, Tomanová teamed with Betsy Nagelsen to win the women's doubles title at the Australian Open, defeating Naoko Sato and Pam Whytcross in the final 7–5, 6–2.[6] With compatriot Pavel Složil she won the mixed doubles title at the 1978 French Open when their opponents retired after the first set.

At the Wimbledon Championships she reached the third round in the singles event on five occasions as well as once in the doubles. In 1979 she reached the quarterfinal of the mixed doubles event with John Marks.[7]

Tomanová was coached by Věra Suková.[8]
