Julia Boserup (born September 9, 1991) is an American professional tennis player of Danish descent. Boserup began playing tennis at age six, after her mother, a native of Denmark, enrolled her in group tennis lessons. She was home schooled in high school, which allowed her to focus more time on her tennis career which began in 2006 (ranking 1261).[1]

In 2017, she reached her highest WTA singles ranking of 80,[2] while her best doubles ranking was 218 on October 23, 2017.[3][4] In 2014, Julia reached the quarterfinals of the WTA event in Monterrey, Mexico, defeating world number 24 Kirsten Flipkens in the first round. [5]

Junior accomplishments[edit]

Boserup won the USTA's Dunlop Orange Bowl in 2008, outlasting fellow American Christina McHale in three sets in the final match.[6]

Professional career[edit]

In her professional career, Boserup has competed mainly in ITF events and has won three singles and one doubles titles. After qualifying, Boserup made her Grand Slam main draw debut at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships, where she defeated Tatjana Maria in the first round. And in the second round, Julia triumphed over Belinda Bencic due to a second set retirement. Then she was beaten by Russian Elena Vesnina. In 2011, she competed as a qualifier in the U.S. Open, losing in the first qualifying round to Bulgaria's Elitsa Kostova. In early 2012, she also competed as a qualifier at the Australian Open, winning two matches before falling in the third round of qualifying. Boserup collected $12,086 in prize money for her efforts in Australia.[7]
