Adriana Szili (born 6 January 1985) is a former professional tennis player from Australia.

Biography[edit]

Szili, who comes from Adelaide, started playing tennis aged five and was coached by Graeme Neville. As a junior her most noted performance came at the 2002 Australian Open where she and Casey Dellacqua won the girls' doubles title. She also was a quarter-finalist in the girls' singles draw and received a wildcard into the women's doubles draw with Jaslyn Hewitt. Szili and Hewitt were beaten in the opening round by eventual quarter-finalists Amanda Coetzer and Lori McNeil. A week later she won a $10,000 ITF circuit tournament in Wellington, with a win over local player Ilke Gers in the final.[1] At the 2003 Australian Open she played in the women's singles event for the only time and was beaten by 28th seed Clarisa Fernández in the first round.[2] In the doubles event she and partner Hewitt were again eliminated by Coetzer, who on this occasion was partnering Jessica Steck.[3]
