Early life and junior career[edit]

Calderwood was born in Sydney and started playing tennis at the age of three.[1]

She has had limited success on the circuit, though her junior ranking did peak at 33 in 2007.


In 2008, she made her WTA Tour doubles debut after being given a wildcard with Alenka Hubacek into the Australian Open. However, they lost in the first round in straight sets. In December of that year, she won the Sorrento ITF doubles title with Shannon Golds.

In 2009, she received wildcards into the doubles tournaments at both the Sydney International and the Australian Open, losing first round in both tournaments.
