Louisa Chirico (born May 16, 1996) is an American tennis player. She is of Korean descent through her mother.[1][2]

Chirico, who comes from Harrison, New York,[3] has won five singles and two doubles titles on the ITF Circuit. On 24 October 2016, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 58. On 6 March 2017, she peaked at No. 184 in the WTA doubles rankings.

Tennis career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Partnering Jan Abaza, Chirico won her first $50k tournament at the 2013 Melbourne Pro Classic, defeating Asia Muhammad and Allie Will in the final.

2015: Grand Slam debut[edit]

She made her Grand Slam debut at the 2015 French Open after being awarded a wildcard into the event by the USTA.[4] She lost in the first round to the ninth seed Ekaterina Makarova, in straight sets.

Chirico won her first WTA Tour match at the 2015 Washington Open where she defeated Heather Watson. She then beat the top-30 player Alizé Cornet in a third set tie-breaker but lost to Sloane Stephens in the quarterfinals.

2016–2018: First Major win[edit]

In May 2016, Chirico won five qualifier and main-draw matches at the Madrid Open to reach the semifinals.[5] Later that month, she reached the main draw of the 2016 French Open through three qualifying wins and made it through to the second round.[6]

After reaching a career-high ranking of No. 58 in October 2016, Chirico dropped outside the top 500 in September 2018.[7]

2022: Return to Grand Slams[edit]

She qualified into the main draw at the 2022 Wimbledon Championships after a 5 years absence from the Majors since Roland Garros 2017.[8]
