Fiona Ferro (born 12 March 1997) is a French professional tennis player born in Belgium.
Ferro has won one singles title on the WTA Tour and four singles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. She has career-high WTA rankings of world No. 67 in singles (attained on 29 July 2019) and world No. 292 in doubles (attained on 29 July 2019).
Fiona Ferro was born in Libramont, Belgium to a Belgian mother Catherine and a French-Italian father Fabrizio. Fiona's parents owned a restaurant in Belgium when Fiona was born. The Ferro family moved to southern France when Fiona was one year old. As of 2018, Fiona's parents were the owners of two hotels in Valbonne, France. Fiona has two older brothers (Gianni and Paolo) and one younger brother (Flavio). Fiona started playing tennis when she was seven in her hometown of Valbonne.
Ferro was the national girls' champion of France in the 12-13 year-olds, 15-16 year-olds and 17-18 year-olds categories. She had a career-high ITF junior combined ranking of world No. 27, attained on 3 June 2013.
Ferro made her ITF Women's Circuit debut at the $25K indoor hardcourt tournament held in late January 2012 in Grenoble, France; she only entered that tournament's singles event, losing in the first qualifying round. She played (only in the singles events of) eight tournaments on the 2012 ITF Women's Circuit.
Ferro then made her WTA 125K series tournament singles debut at the Open de Limoges after receiving a wild card for the singles main draw, where she lost in the first round to the unseeded Ivana Jorovi?.
At the end of February, Ferro played her year-first and just her third career WTA Tour singles main-draw match at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel after defeating two higher-ranked players (Samantha Crawford and Tatjana Maria) in qualifying matches, losing in the first round to the No. 5 seed Christina McHale. In April, Ferro played her second and third WTA Tour singles main-draw matches of 2017 in Bogotá and Istanbul respectively after winning two qualifying matches in each tournament; she lost in the first round to seeded players (to Johanna Larsson in Bogotá and Sorana Cîrstea in Istanbul) in both tournaments.
On 11 February 2018, Ferro won her first ITF singles title in Grenoble. Ferro had to win three qualifying matches to reach the singles main-draw of a WTA Tour event for the first time in 2018, at the International tournament in Rabat, losing in the first round to another qualifier, Paula Badosa Gibert. Ferro also played in Strasbourg (she had entered the main draw as a wild card), losing in the first round to the No. 6 seed Tímea Babos.
Ferro received a singles main-draw wild card for the French Open, just like she did in 2014, 2015 and 2017. She won the first Grand Slam singles main-draw match of her career and also picked up her first career win over a player ranked in the top 100 at the French Open when she defeated world No. 61 Carina Witthöft in the first round. She lost to the No. 3 seed Garbiñe Muguruza in the second round.
In early February, Ferro was selected for the first time in her career in the France Fed Cup team, for the Fed Cup World Group quarterfinal against Belgium. She played only the doubles match (partnering Pauline Parmentier), which was a dead rubber, of that tie which France won 3-1. She and Parmentier lost their match against Ysaline Bonaventure and Kirsten Flipkens in three sets.
