Tennis career

2005-2006

Oprandi first came to prominence in the top tier of women's tennis when she reached the quarterfinals of a WTA Tier I event in Rome as a qualifier, losing to Svetlana Kuznetsova, 4-6, 7-5, 6-7. Romina won an ITF singles title at Denain, which was her best result for the rest of the 2006 season.

2007-2009

Oprani played several tournaments on the main tour, including the Australian Open, Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Amelia Island, Charleston, Rome, and the French Open. At Barcelona, she retired in the first round. Romina then did not play for the rest of the 2007 season and the first half of the 2008 season due to a right forearm injury.

She returned to tennis in August 2008 at an ITF event in Monteroni d'Arabia, Italy. She won an ITF tournament in Wahlstedt, Germany and reached the final in Mestre, Italy.

Oprandi played in her first WTA tour event in over 18 months 2009 in Bogotá, Colombia where she lost in the first round, 6-3, 6-7, 6-7. She won the doubles title at Buchen, partnering Sandra Martinovi?.

2012-2014

On 12 August 2012, Oprandi defeated Anna Chakvetadze 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 to win the EmblemHealth Open singles title held in Bronx, New York.

She reached two WTA singles semifinals in 2013, in Oeiras and Brussels, but then suffered a shoulder injury which kept her out of action for eight months.

In April 2014, Oprandi reached her first WTA final at the third time of asking by beating number one seed Daniela Hantuchová in the semifinals at the Marrakech Grand Prix. She lost 3-6, 6-3, 3-6 to María Teresa Torró Flor in the final. The same day, she won her first WTA doubles title at the same tournament, partnering with Garbiñe Muguruza to defeat Katarzyna Piter and Maryna Zanevska 4-6, 6-2, [11-9] in the final.
