Personal life[edit]

Tennis career[edit]

Teodora Mirčić is one of the best doubles players Serbia has on ITF and WTA tour. She is the only female Serbian tennis player to win 33 doubles titles on ITF tour. In singles, Mirčić was always ranked amongst the top 5 in the country. As a young player she started competing on both WTA and ITF tournaments. She captured 3 singles and 33 doubles titles on ITF tour. As a young player, Mirčić played her first WTA Tour qualifications in 2005, at the Budapest Grand Prix, but lost in the first round.[4] She then earned a wild card for the 2006 Budapest Grand Prix, losing to Kaia Kanepi in the first round.[4] Tsvetana Pironkova defeated her in the first round of the 2008 Budapest Grand Prix in straight sets.[4] In 2009, Mirčić played qualifications for two WTA Tour events, the Grand Prix SAR La Princesse Lalla Meryem and the Swedish Open, but lost both times.[5] At the 2011 Poli-Farbe Budapest Grand Prix, she played singles qualifications, losing to Aleksandra Krunić in the second round. Along with Laura Thorpe, Mirčić competed in doubles at the 2011 Internazionali Femminili di Palermo. The pair defeated the fourth seeds Sorana Cîrstea and Andreja Klepač in a super tiebreak in the first round and later reached the semifinals.[6] She lost to Karin Knapp in the last round of singles qualifying. Mirčić reached another doubles semifinal at a WTA event partnering Veronika Kapshay in Bad Gastein (July 2013) as well as a quarterfinal at the WTA Tashkent Open.

Mirčić joined the Serbia Fed Cup team in 2008, playing with Jelena Janković, Ana Ivanovic and Ana Jovanović against Poland.[7] Ivanovic defeated Urszula Radwańska, and then Janković defeated Agnieszka Radwańska, securing Serbia a place in World Group II.[7] In the dead rubber, Mirčić and Jovanović lost to Klaudia Jans and Alicja Rosolska in straight sets.[7] The same Serbian team played against Croatia.[8] Mirčić lost her singles match, but Janković, Ivanovic and Jovanović defeated their opponents, with Serbia winning the tie 3–2.[8] Mirčić and Jovanović also played a doubles match, but retired for a final 4–1 result.[8] Mirčić has not played in the Fed Cup since 2008.
