Rushmi Chakravarthi (Telugu: రుష్మి చక్రవర్తి; born 9 October 1977) is a professional tennis player from India.[1] She has won a record 45 ITF Women's Circuit titles, the highest number set by an Indian female player. She turned professional after playing in the first round of the WTA Tour Sunfeast Open Tournament held at Kolkata in September 2005.[citation needed]

Tennis career[edit]

2005–2010[edit]

She is predominantly an ITF Circuit player. In her career, Chakravarthi played on the WTA Tour on two occasions, at the Sunfeast Open in 2005 and 2006, losing in round one both times.

Her biggest career highlight was winning four medals (of which two were Gold) at the 2003 Afro-Asian Games. Rushmi has represented India at the Asian Games in 2002, 2006 and 2010.

Chakravarthi lost in the qualifying of the 2010 Malaysian Open. This was her only performance in a WTA tournament outside India.

She has also competed in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, where she progressed to the quarterfinals by beating English Katie O'Brien,[2] and won the doubles bronze medal with Sania Mirza.[3]

2011[edit]

Chakravarthi partnered with compatriot Poojashree Venkatesha to win the ITF event in Muzaffarnagar.

2012[edit]

Chakravarthi was awarded a wildcard entry to 2012 London Olympics in London along with Sania Mirza to play in Women's Doubles.[4] The pair were beaten in a tight three-setter to Taiwanese pair of Su-Wei Hsieh and Chia-Jung Chuang in round one.[5]
