Markéta Vondroušová (Czech: [ˈmarkɛːta ˈvondrouʃovaː], born 28 June 1999) is a Czech tennis player.

Vondroušová has won one singles title on the WTA Tour as well as seven singles and four doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. On 19 March 2018, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 50 and was the youngest player in the top 100. On 17 July 2017, she peaked at No. 152 in the doubles rankings, having reached the Wimbledon quarterfinal.

In 2015, Vondroušová won the girls' doubles event at the Australian Open with fellow Czech Miriam Kolodziejová, defeating Katharina Hobgarski and Greet Minnen in the final. In the same year, they won the girls' doubles event at the French Open, where they faced Caroline Dolehide and Katerina Stewart in the final.

Career[edit]

2015-2016: The beginnings, injury layoff[edit]

Vondroušová made her WTA Tour main-draw debut in doubles at the 2015 Sparta Prague Open, partnering Kateřina Vaňková.[1] The pair lost their first round match against Kateryna Bondarenko and Eva Hrdinová.[1] A year later, Vondroušová made her WTA debut in singles at the 2016 J&T Banka Prague Open, where she defeated Océane Dodin before her second-round loss to eventual tournament runner-up Samantha Stosur.

Vondroušová then played at the Roland Garros junior event, losing in the third round to Olesya Pervushina. Vondroušová did not play for the rest of the year, as she took time out to recover from an elbow injury.

2017: Return to tour, first WTA title, entering the top 100[edit]

On her comeback to the tour, Vondroušova immediately reeled off 20 consecutive wins, resulting in one $15,000 title, one $25,000 title, and two more $25,000 finals. In April, she reached her debut WTA singles final at the Ladies Open Biel/Bienne, coming through qualifying and scoring wins over Annika Beck, Kristýna Plíšková, and Top 20 player Barbora Strýcová. In just her second appearance in a WTA main draw, Vondroušová got past Anett Kontaveit in the final to clinch her maiden WTA title. This win propelled her close to a top-100 debut.[2][3] Vondroušová became the youngest winner of a WTA title since Konjuh's title at the 2015 Nottingham Open.[4]

Next, Vondroušova made her Fed Cup debut in the semifinals against the United States, where she lost to CoCo Vandeweghe in straight sets. In her second match, she earned her first Fed Cup win when she defeated Lauren Davis in straight sets.

After winning an ITF tournament in Trnava, Vondroušová improved her ranking to No. 94 and entered top 100 for the first time.[5][6] She became the youngest player in the top 100 at the time.[7]
