Alexandra Alexandrovna Panova (Russian: Александра Александровна Панова, born 2 March 1989) is a professional Russian tennis player. Her highest WTA singles ranking is 71, which she reached on 30 July 2012. Her career high in doubles is 38, which she reached on 18 January 2016.

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, losing in straight sets and winning just one game.

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, Alizé 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.[2]

Now with Margarita Gasparyan as her doubles partner, Panova reached the finals of the 2014 Tashkent Open, losing to Krunić/Siniaková. This was Gasparyan's first WTA final in her career.

2015[edit]

Panova entered the main draw at the 2015 Australian Open through qualifying. She won her first ever match at a Grand Slam by beating Sorana Cîrstea in the first round. She then came up against fellow countrywoman Maria Sharapova in the second round and lost in three sets after having 2 match points on her serve.

2016[edit]

Panova started the new season losing in qualifying tournaments of Brisbane, Australian Open and St. Petersburg. She received her first main draw entry at the Malaysian Open, losing there in the first round. She renewed herself in Bogota, Mexico, where she has been traditionally playing well. There Panova defeated the first-seeded Elina Svitolina, saving five match points in the third set after being 3–6 behind Svitolina.[3]
