Career

Brodsky was born in Zaporizhia, Ukraine to Eduard and Julia, moved to moved to Ocean Parkway across the street from Coney Island Hospital in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, when she was six, and is Jewish.[2][3][4][1] As a youth, she trained on public courts in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn.[5] She and her husband and two children live in Kirkland, Washington.[4]

She won the 2008 USTA Girls' 18s national title, defeating both Sloane Stephens, the 2017 US Open champion, and CoCo Vandeweghe, the 2017 US Open semifinalist, at 17 years of age.[3][4] She thus earned a wild card to the 2008 US Open, where she lost in the first round 7-5, 6-3, to world # 14 Agnes Szavay.[4][5] She was also given a wild card into the 2009 US Open, where she lost in the first round 6-4, 6-4 to Anabel Medina Garrigues.

She said: "I grew up with a lot of pressure and not a lot of passion for the sport." Her parents were strict about here diet and other aspects of her life; it was only after she broke all contact with them (she says: "it wasn't a healthy situation"), at age 17, that she tasted her first French fry.[6]

She won the 2010 $10,000 Porto (CL), 2011 $10,000 Gosier (H) and $25,000 La Coruna (H), 2015 $10,000 Victoria, BC (IH), and 2018 $15,000 Victoria, BC (IH) and $60,000 Ashland, KY (H) singles titles.[1]
