Once again we have a batch of three newcomers, starting with Andrea Hlavackova!
Andrea Hlavackova bio
Andrea Hlavackova was born in Plzen, Czech Republic (Czechoslovakia at the time) on August 10th 1986.
Her highest singles ranking is world number 87, achieved in early 2011, while her best doubles ranking is world number 17, on August 15th 2011.
In her career, Andrea Hlavackova has won 5 WTA doubles titles, as well as 15 ITF doubles titles and four ITF singles titles. One of her doubles titles was at the 2011 French Open, won alongside Lucie Hradecka as an unseeded duo. They beat eight seeds Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova and Iveta Benesova in the first round, second seeds Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotik in the quarter-finals, third seeds Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova in the semi-finals and finally the seventh seeds Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina in the final. Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka’ feat was even greater than it may seem, as they won the title without conceding a single set to any of their opponents.
Her first WTA doubles title ever was won alongside fellow czech hot tennis player Petra Cetkovska, at their home country back in 2007.
She is halfway through her law degree, which she stopped to pursue her professional tennis career, but she hopes to return and eventually finish it.
