She has won one WTA singles title, three WTA 125K series titles and seven singles titles on the ITF Circuit.[2] On 17 February 2020, she reached her best singles ranking of No. 25. On 17 May 2021, she peaked at No. 87 in the WTA doubles rankings[3]

Tennis career

2016: WTA debut, Grand Slam debut, first WTA 125k title

Despite starting the year as the world No. 291, Alexandrova made a flying start to the season as she clinched her fifth ITF title at the $10k event in Trnava.

Alexandrova then made her WTA Tour singles debut at the 2016 Katowice Open, where she qualified for the main draw after surviving the qualifying rounds as an unseeded player. In her first WTA main draw match, she defeated world No. 115, Klára Koukalová,[4] before falling to eventual finalist Camila Giorgi in three sets.

In the first grass-court tournament of her career, she qualified for a Grand Slam tournament for the first time at the Wimbledon Championships. She was only able to enter the qualifying draw after ten players ahead of her withdrew and it was also her first Grand Slam appearance,[5] prevailing 14-12 and 13-11 against Stephanie Vogt and Harriet Dart, respectively, to reach the main draw. Overall, she played 108 games in just three matches.[6] In the first round, she defeated former world No. 1, Ana Ivanovic, in straight sets, causing one of the biggest upsets in the tournament.[7]

Immediately after her Wimbledon run, Alexandrova returned onto clay and reached the final of the ITS Cup, a $50k event, losing to compatriot and top seed Elizaveta Kulichkova in three sets.[8] At the Tournoi de Québec, she claimed the biggest win of her career against world No. 59, Julia Görges, in the first round.[9]

Entering the Open de Limoges, a WTA 125k event, as the world No. 133, Alexandrova caused a huge shock by ending the season with the biggest title of her career. En route, she defeated three big local favourites: fourth-seeded Pauline Parmentier in the second round, second-seeded Alizé Cornet in the semifinals,[10] and top-seeded world No. 24, Caroline Garcia, in the final.[11]

2017: Top 100 debut

In the 2017 season, Alexandrova continued to be a constant presence on the WTA Tour but not achieving any major success. She received direct entry into the Australian Open main draw for the first time in her career, but lost to compatriot and 30th seed Ekaterina Makarova in the first round.[12]

She made her top-100 debut with consecutive title runs a $60k events Pingshan Open and Open de Seine-et-Marne.[13] Making her first French Open main-draw appearance, she beat Kate?ina Siniaková before falling short of eventual semifinalist and world No. 2, Karolína Plí?ková, in three sets.[14] At the Wimbledon Championships, Alexandrova lost to eventual champion Garbiñe Muguruza in the first round.[15]

Alexandrova qualified for a Premier 5 tournament for the first time at the Rogers Cup, but lost to world No. 6 and eventual finalist, Caroline Wozniacki, in the second round.[16] At the Open de Limoges, she lost in the quarterfinals to Antonia Lottner as the defending champion.

2018: Maiden WTA final

Alexandrova at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships

Alexandrova enjoyed a breakthrough season on the WTA Tour in the year.

At the Australian Open, she was beaten by fellow hard-hitting Madison Keys in the second round, winning just one game in the process.[17]

After some mediocre results, Alexandrova fell out of the top 100. However, she managed to make the semifinals of $100k events, the Slovak Open and Ilkley Trophy. Alongside a run to the final of the $100k event, the Hungarian Open, she returned to the top 100 after a brief period.

She made her first WTA quarterfinal at the Korea Open, clinching her first top-10 victory over world No. 10, Je?ena Ostapenko, in straight sets.[18] Alexandrova made an astonishing run at another international tournament, now in Linz, Austria, reaching the final of a WTA tournament for the first time. Sailing through the qualifying rounds with the loss of just four games, Alexandrova beat compatriot Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in straight sets to reach her first WTA semifinal.[19] There, she recovered from a bagel to beat former top-10 player Andrea Petkovic and booked her spot in the final.[20] However, she was defeated by Camila Giorgi in straight sets, but nonetheless made her return to the top 100 with her fantastic run.[21]

She ended the season by tradition at the Open de Limoges, winning the title for the second time in her career after beating Evgeniya Rodina in straight sets.[22] This victory solidified her place in the top 100, finding herself at the 73rd spot of the rankings after the tournament.[23]

2019: Russian No. 1

Alexandrova at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships

In 2019, Alexandrova continued to earn more success on the WTA Tour.

She began her season at the Shenzhen Open, where she lost in the second round to eventual champion and top seed Aryna Sabalenka.[24] Alexandrova also qualified for the main draw at the Sydney International, but failed to serve out the match against top-10 player Sloane Stephens in the first round.[]

Playing in a WTA tournament main draw at home for the first time, Alexandrova prevailed in the qualifying rounds before reaching the quarterfinals of the St. Petersburg Trophy where she fell to Sabalenka, in straight sets once again.[25] She then set a new career-high ranking of No. 59 after a semifinal run at the Hungarian Open where she held five match points against eventual champion Alison Van Uytvanck.[26]

With her best result at a Premier Mandatory event, Alexandrova reached the third round of the Premier Mandatory Indian Wells Open by beating world No. 13 Wozniacki, in three sets.[27] She did not perform well on clay-court tournaments, except at the French Open, reaching the third round of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in her career. She beat 30th seed Mihaela Buz?rnescu in the first round, before stunning 2010 finalist Samantha Stosur in the second round.[28]

In the grass-court season, Alexandrova made it into the quarterfinals of the Eastbourne International and Rosmalen Championships, losing there to eventual champions Karolína Plí?ková][29] and Alison Riske, respectively. A disappointing first-round exit at Wimbledon followed, losing to Kate?ina Siniaková in three sets.

She achieved her best run in a Premier 5 tournament at the Canadian Open, reaching the third round as qualifier. After leading throughout the majority of both sets, Alexandrova fell to Serena Williams in straight sets.[30] Alexandrova also led world No. 4, Simona Halep, by a set and a break in the second round of the Western & Southern Open, but failed to sustain her high level.[31] She was defeated by 33rd seed Zhang Shuai in the second round of the US Open, a player whom she defeated in Cincinnati earlier on. Nonetheless, she became the highest-ranked Russian after this tournament.

Alexandrova reached her second career WTA semifinal at the Korea Open, where she beat Kristie Ahn in the quarterfinals by hitting a personal-record 22 aces.[32] Another strong run came at the Premier Mandatory event, the China Open. There, she stunned world No. 5, Halep, in straight sets after her disappointment in Cincinnati, claiming the biggest win of her career.[33] However, she was defeated by compatriot Daria Kasatkina in straight sets.[34]

Defending finalist points at the Linz Open, Alexandrova rolled into the semifinals but failed to convert her match points against Je?ena Ostapenko and leading in both the second and final sets.[35] Making her main-draw debut at the Kremlin Cup, the Russian made the quarterfinals although her run was eventually stopped by the in-form Karolína Muchová.[36] For the third time in her career, Alexandrova closed out her season with a triumph at the Open de Limoges, this time lifting the trophy as the top seed.[37]

2020: First WTA title, Fed Cup debut

Alexandrova started the 2020 season at the Shenzhen Open. Seeded fifth, she won her first WTA singles title beating seventh seed Elena Rybakina in the final.[38] As a result, she became the first player to win a WTA tournament in the new decade. At the Australian Open where she was seeded at a Grand Slam event for the first time, she reached the third round where she lost to seventh seed and last year finalist, Petra Kvitová.[39]

Alexandrova then represented Russia for the first time in her career, leading the team against Romania in the Fed Cup as the Russian No. 1.[40] On her debut, she led Russia to a tight 3-2 win over the home team, defeating Elena-Gabriela Ruse in straight sets[41] and Ana Bogdan in a tight three-setter,[42] helping to book Russia's spot in the inaugural Fed Cup Finals.[43] She next participated at the St. Petersburg Trophy, where she reached the semifinals losing in three sets to defending champion and eventual champion, Kiki Bertens.[44] At the Qatar Open, she suffered a first-round exit at the hands of Amanda Anisimova.[45] The WTA tour was suspended from March through July due to the Coronavirus pandemic.[46][47]

When the WTA resumed tournament play in August, Alexandrova competed at the Palermo Open. Seeded eighth, she lost in the second round to eventual champion Fiona Ferro.[48] Seeded fifth at the Prague Open, she was defeated in the first round by qualifier Lesia Tsurenko.[49] At the Western & Southern Open, she lost in the second round to American qualifier Christina McHale.[50] The tournament was held at the USTA BJK National Tennis Center for the first time, lowering the risk of the transmission of the virus behind closed doors. At the same competition ground, she stunned the returning former world No. 1 and three-time champion, Kim Clijsters, in the first round of the US Open after recovering from a set down.[51] However, she failed to back up her good win as she fell short to Caty McNally in the second round.[52]

In Rome, Alexandrova was defeated in the first round by 10th seed Elena Rybakina.[53] Seeded seventh at the Internationaux de Strasbourg, she lost in the second round to Kate?ina Siniaková.[54] Seeded 27th at the French Open, she made it to the third round where she was defeated by third seed Elina Svitolina.[55]

At the first edition of the J&T Banka Ostrava Open, Alexandrova lost in the first round to eighth seed Anett Kontaveit.[56] Her final tournament of the year was the Upper Austria Ladies Linz. Seeded fourth, she reached the semifinals where she was defeated by second seed Elise Mertens.[57]

Alexandrova ended the season ranked 33.

Notes

  1. ^ The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009-2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012-2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
