Lyudmyla Viktorivna Kichenok (Ukrainian: Людмила Вікторівна Кіченок; born 20 July 1992 in Dnipropetrovsk) is a Ukrainian tennis player. Her career-high singles ranking is world No. 156, which she reached on 21 July 2014. In doubles, she reached No. 35 on 2 April 2018. She is the twin sister of Nadiia Kichenok, also professional tennis player.

Career[edit]

In 2015, she won her first WTA doubles title together with her sister. They escaped a 5-0 deficit in the second set tie-break of their 6-4, 7-6(6) defeat of Liang Chen and Wang Yafan in the Shenzhen Open final. That made the Kichenoks the second pair of twins, after Karolína Plíšková and Kristýna Plíšková, to win a WTA doubles title. They previously had been runners-up at Tashkent in 2011 and Shenzhen in 2014.[1] She won the second WTA doubles title Brasil Tennis Cup.

During the 2015 Tianjin Open, Kichenok caused the biggest upset of the tournament, upsetting world No. 8 and reigning US Open champion, Flavia Pennetta, in the first round for the biggest win of her career so far.[2]
