Olga Danilović (Serbian Cyrillic: Олга Даниловић, pronounced [ôːlga danǐːloʋitɕ]; born 23 January 2001) is a Serbian tennis player.

In July 2018, Danilović won her first career WTA singles title in Moscow by beating Anastasia Potapova in the final. In September 2018, she also won her first WTA doubles title, in Tashkent. She has won five singles and one doubles title on the ITF circuit in her career. On 8 October 2018, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 96. On 24 June 2019, she peaked at No. 117 in the doubles rankings.

In 2018, Danilović's coach became former world No. 2, Àlex Corretja,[2] having been her mentor since 2016.[3] During her title in Moscow, former Serbian Fed Cup captain, Dejan Vraneš, traveled with Danilović and coached her although he is not her official coach.[2] In 2018-19, she was briefly coached by Petar Popović.[4] In 2017–18, her coach was Juan Lizariturry.[1] Danilović was coached in the past by Denis Bejtulahi (in 2017)[5] and Tatjana Ječmenica (in two stints – before late 2015[6] and in 2016).[7]

Playing for Serbia in the Fed Cup, Danilović has a win–loss record of 8–5.

2018: Top 100; first WTA titles; Fed Cup Heart Award[edit]

Danilović made her Fed Cup debut in February 2018 in Group I of Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone, winning all three singles matches, including a 6–2, 6–4 win over world No. 15, Anastasija Sevastova, in the promotional play-offs.[9] The courageous performances for the national team earned Danilović a Fed Cup Heart Award and a cheque of $1,000 to be donated to a charity,[10] which she chose to donate to University Children's Hospital in Belgrade.[11]

In March, she won her first 25K title in Santa Margherita di Pula. In May, she was given a qualifying wildcard for WTA Premier Mandatory tournament in Madrid, where she beat a former top 30 player, Kateryna Bondarenko, in the first round, but lost to Aryna Sabalenka in the final round of qualifying. In mid-July, Danilović won the first 60K title in her career when she came back from one set down to beat another former top 30 player, Laura Siegemund, 5–7, 6–1, 6–3, in the final of Versmold. She also reached the final in doubles of the same tournament with compatriot Nina Stojanović.

In late July, she won her first career WTA singles title in Moscow, defeating Anastasia Potapova in the final, 7–5, 6–7(1–7), 6–4. Danilović became the first player born in the third millennium (after 2000) to win a WTA Tour singles title. She also became the second lucky loser in the history of the WTA Tour to win the title.[12] This was the first WTA Tour final between two players under 18 since Tatiana Golovin and Nicole Vaidišová played in the final of the 2005 AIG Japan Open Tennis Championships.

She then participated in the 2018 US Open qualifying, where she beat Bianca Andreescu, before losing to Jaimee Fourlis. She then entered the Tashkent Open, where she beat Anna Kalinskaya in the first round, before losing to Anastasia Potapova in a Moscow rematch. In the same tournament, she won the doubles title partnering Tamara Zidanšek.

On 1 October 2018, Danilović entered the top 100 for the first time when she reached a singles ranking of world No. 97. The following week, she reached her highest ranking of the season of world No. 96.

In mid-October, she lost in the first round of qualifying in Linz and Luxembourg. She next participated in WTA 125K series Mumbai Open, where she was seeded 4th and lost to Danka Kovinić in the first round, whom she also partnered with to reach the semis of the doubles. This proved to be her last tournament of the year as she withdraw from the following week's WTA 125K Open de Limoges.

Notes

  • 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
