Kateřina Siniaková (born 10 May 1996) is a Czech tennis player. She has won two singles titles and six doubles titles on the WTA Tour, including the women's doubles titles with Barbora Krejčíková at the 2018 French Open and 2018 Wimbledon Championships, as well as seven singles and four doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. She achieved her career-high singles and doubles rankings of No. 31 and No. 1 in October 2018.

Career[edit]

Kateřina Siniaková

Siniaková was born to a Czech mother and Russian father Dmitry, a former boxer and her coach.[1] She began playing on the ITF Women's Circuit in the Czech Republic in June 2012. There in a doubles competition, she won her first ITF title.

2012–2016[edit]

She was ranked the world No. 2 junior tennis player in December 2012.[2] With fellow Czech Barbora Krejčíková, she won the girls' doubles titles at the French Open, at Wimbledon and the US Open in 2013.

In March 2013, Siniaková made her debut on the WTA Tour in the qualifying draw of Sony Open Tennis. She defeated Mandy Minella and Alexa Glatch, but lost a three-set encounter with Garbiñe Muguruza in the first round of the main draw. After winning her first Grand Slam singles match at the 2015 Australian Open, she reached the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time in 2016 at Wimbledon with victories over Pauline Parmentier and 30th seed Caroline Garcia before being defeated by former world No. 2 Agnieszka Radwańska.

2017: First WTA singles titles[edit]

Kateřina Siniaková won her first WTA singles title at Shenzhen Open. The tournament began by defeating Peng Shuai in the first round in two sets. In the second, she edged world No. 4 Simona Halep in three sets (7–5 in the third) and claimed first win over a top-10 player. Her run continued by beating qualifier Nina Stojanovic and world No. 9 Johanna Konta in three sets. In the final, she defeated Alison Riske 6–3, 6–4 and won first WTA title.

At Melbourne, she lost to Julia Görges in the first round. Then she moved to Taiwan Open where she edged Galina Voskoboeva in the first round in three sets, but then lost easily to Peng Shuai. In February, she was nominated to the Fed Cup team for the first time by the captain Petr Pála as she was the third best ranked woman Czech tennis player (considering Petra Kvitová's injury) after Karolína Plíšková and Barbora Strýcová. Anyway, the captain announced eventually that Siniaková will first of all collect experience.[3]

After a little bit of struggling in tournaments not being able to win more than two matches in a row, she got back to Båstad for Swedish Open, where she reached her first career final in previous year. She eventually clinched her second career WTA title here, beating three top 20 players, including a huge upset of top-seed and former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, 6–3, 6–4 in the final.[4] She faced some struggles the rest of the year, only recording four wins in thirteen matches. She finished the year ranked no. 49, the exact same ranking as the previous year.

2018: World No. 1 in doubles[edit]

In Shenzhen, Siniaková lost to Simona Halep in the final,[5] after defeating Maria Sharapova in the semifinals.[6] Siniaková also played in the doubles final alongside Barbora Krejčíková, they lost to Halep and Begu.

At the Australian Open, she lost to Elina Svitolina in the second round.[7] In doubles, Siniaková and Krejčíková lost to Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina in round three. But together they won the women's doubles[8] title at the French Open and in Wimbledon.[9]
