She has won two singles and three doubles titles on the WTA Tour, as well as seven singles and four doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. She has won 2018 French Open and 2018 Wimbledon in women's doubles partnering Barbora Krejčíková.

Career[edit]

Katerina Siniakova

Siniaková who was born in Hradec Králové to a Czech mother and a Russian father, Dmitry, a former boxer and her coach,[1] began playing on the ITF Women's Circuit in June 2012. It was then, she won her first ITF title in a doubles competition in the Czech Republic.

2012–2016[edit]

She was ranked the No. 2 junior tennis player in the world in December 2012.[2] In 2013, she won the French Open girls' doubles, the Wimbledon girls' doubles and the US Open girls' doubles titles with fellow Czech Barbora Krejčíková.

In March 2013, Siniaková made her WTA tour debut in the qualifying draw of the Sony Open Tennis. She defeated Mandy Minella and Alexa Glatch to qualify for the main draw, but lost a three-set encounter with Garbiñe Muguruza in the first round.

2017: First WTA titles[edit]

Kateřina Siniaková won her first WTA singles title at Shenzhen Open. The tournament began by defeating Peng Shuai in the first round in two sets. In the second round she edged Simona Halep, world No. 4, in three sets (7–5 in the third) and claimed first win over top10 player. Her run continued by beating qualifier Nina Stojanovic and world No. 9 Johanna Konta in three sets. In the final she defeated Alison Riske 6–3, 6–4 and won first WTA title.

From Shenzhen she moved to Melbourne but lost to Julia Görges in the first round. Then she moved to Taiwan Open. In the first round she edged Galina Voskoboeva in three sets, but then lost easily to Peng Shuai. In February she was nominated to the Fed Cup team for the first time by the captain Petr Pála as she was the third best ranked woman Czech tennis player (considering Petra Kvitová´s injury) after Karolína Plíšková and Barbora Strýcová. Anyway, the captain announced eventually that Siniaková will first of all collect experience.[3]

After a little bit of struggling in tournaments not being able to win more than two matches in a row, she got back to Bastad for Swedish Open, where she reached her first career final in previous year. She eventually clinched her second career WTA title here, shocking top seed and former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, 6–3, 6–4 in the final.[4]

2018[edit]

In Shenzhen, Siniaková lost to Simona Halep in the final,[5] after defeating Maria Sharapova in the semifinals.[6] Siniaková also played in the doubles final alongside Barbora Krejčíková, they lost to Halep and Begu.

At the Australian Open, Siniaková lost to Elina Svitolina in the second round.[7] In doubles, Siniaková and Krejčíková lost to Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina in third round. But together they won the women's doubles at the French Open.
