Anna Alexandrovna Lapushchenkova (Russian: Анна Александровна Лапущенкова; born 24 October 1986) is a Russian professional tennis player, since 2003.

Career summary[edit]

Lapushchenkova began competing occasionally on the ITF women's circuit in October 2002, shortly before her sixteenth birthday. She started to compete regularly early in 2005, enjoying steady improvements over the following two years; and after at first seeming to reach a plateau around World No. 300 in the first half of 2007, she had risen rapidly to a career high of World No. 140 by 14 January 2008.

To date she has won two $50,000 ITF titles and three $10,000 titles, and reached the final of a $100,000 event. Although she has so far struggled to qualify for major WTA Tour main draws, she has beaten several Top 100-calibre players at lesser events and in qualifying rounds for WTA events.
