Galina Olegovna Voskoboeva (Russian: ?; born 18 December 1984) is a professional Russian-born Kazakhstani tennis player. She reached her career-high singles ranking of world No. 42 on 7 May 2012. Her career high in doubles is 26th, set on 20 August 2012.

Professional career

Born in Moscow, Voskoboeva was introduced to tennis by her mother, a swimming coach, at age six. She turned pro in 2002. During her career, she has won five doubles titles on the WTA Tour, as well as three singles titles (in Mont-de-Marsan in 2003, Cuneo in 2006, and Casablanca in 2011) and 13 doubles titles on the ITF circuit.

2008-2010

In 2008, Voskoboeva managed to qualify for the Qatar Total Open in Doha. In the first round she defeated Eleni Daniilidou before taking a set off world No. 5 Maria Sharapova before losing 4-6, 6-4, 1-6. That same year, she reached the quarterfinals in Quebec City. In 2009, she reached the quarterfinals in Warsaw. At the US Open, she lost in the first round to Caroline Wozniacki 4-6, 0-6.

Few years back she did not have a coach, as she was unable to afford one. She is now coached by Alina Jidkova, former top-100 player who retired at the end of 2010.

2011

Galina Voskoboeva returns a shot in the 2011 US Open qualifying tournament.

Ranked 560 in the world, Galina reached the quarterfinals of the Pattaya Open. Due to her ranking, she had to qualify, and did so by defeating top-seed Sania Mirza 6-4, 6-4, and No. 7 seed Lindsay Lee-Waters 4-6, 6-1, 6-0 in the qualifying tournament. In the first round of the main draw she defeated Romina Oprandi 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 before defeating No. 3 seed Maria Kirilenko in an epic match 1-6, 7-5, 6-4. Galina was down 1-6, 3-5 before making a remarkable comeback.

She qualified for the Sony Ericsson Open and upset the No. 7 seed Jelena Dokic in the first round.

Voskoboeva became the first woman to win a main-draw singles match at the new event in Azerbaijan, the Baku Cup, by inflicting a 6-0, 6-0 win over Sofia Shapatava. She followed up this win by defeating fifth seed and doubles partner Monica Niculescu in the second round. She then went on to upset No. 2 seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the quarterfinals with a 6-7, 6-4, 6-3 win, but lost to Ksenia Pervak in the semifinals. In doubles, Voskoboeva and Niculescu were the first seeds. They crushed Georgian duo Tatia Mikadze and Sofia Shapatava. The pair beat wildcard Nigina Abduraimova and Kamilla Farhad in the quarterfinals, and advanced to the finals by defeating Daniela Dominikovic and Noppawan Lertcheewakarn, but lost to second seeds Mariya Koryttseva and Tatiana Poutchek in a tough match.

After qualifying for the Premier-level Rogers Cup in Toronto, Voskoboeva recorded the biggest win of her career by defeating French Open-semifinalist and world No. 9 Marion Bartoli 6-3, 6-3 in the first round. She followed this up with a decisive win against Italian world No. 25 Flavia Pennetta 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the third round. She followed her strong performance by beating former world No. 1 Maria Sharapova 6-3, 7-5. She lost to fourth seeded Victoria Azarenka in the quarterfinals.

Voskoboeva qualified for the US Open, but lost to seventh seed Francesca Schiavone in a tough three sets in the first round.

2012

As of 2012, Voskoboeva has paired with fellow Kazakh player Yaroslava Shvedova in doubles, in an effort to represent their nation at the Olympic Games in London, a feat they achieved, reaching the second round.[1]

2013

She began the year at the ASB Classic, and lost in the first round to Kirsten Flipkens 1-6, 7-6, 5-7.[2] After Auckland, Voskoboeva qualified for the Apia International Sydney by beating 12th seed Arantxa Rus 6-2, 6-1, CoCo Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-4, and second seed Sofia Arvidsson 7-6, 7-6. In the first round, she beat Yanina Wickmayer 3-6, 7-6, 6-2.
