Paula Kania-Chodu? (Polish pronunciation: ['pau?la 'ka?a]; born 6 November 1992) is a professional Polish tennis player.

Kania-Chodu? has won one WTA title in doubles, as well as five titles in singles and twelve in doubles on the ITF Circuit. On 15 June 2015, she reached her career-high singles ranking of world No. 128, and on 2 May 2016, she peaked at No. 58 in the WTA doubles rankings.

Tennis career

Paula was born to Pawe? and Zdzis?awa Kania. She has one sister - Zuzanna. Paula began playing tennis at the age of seven and her favourite surface is hard court. She became a professional player in 2008.

2012

Kania and Polina Pekhova won the title on Tashkent Open defeating Anna Chakvetadze and Vesna Dolonc in the final, when their opponents retired after losing the first set 2-6. This was her first WTA title of any kind.

2014

Having qualified for her first main-draw of a Grand Slam tournament at Wimbledon, Kania lost in the first round to world No. 2, Li Na, in straight sets. The match was also her first singles main-draw of any WTA Tour event, after participating in qualifying at 20 tournaments.[1] Kania continued her momentum by qualifying for another main-draw a month later, at the Bank of the West Classic.
