Yulia Antonovna Putintseva (Russian: ? ; born 7 January 1995) is a Kazakh tennis player of Russian origin and descent. She is a two-time French Open quarterfinalist, and she achieved her career-high singles ranking of world No. 27 in February 2017.

Personal life

Yulia Putintseva was born to Anton Putintsev and Anna Putintseva, and has a brother named Ilya. Born in Moscow, she currently resides in Boca Raton, Florida.[1] Her favourite surface is clay. As of the start of June 2012, she represents Kazakhstan.

Tennis career

Junior years

In 2009, she played the second round of US Open in girls' singles, and the first round of the girls' doubles event, partnering Tamara ?urovi?. Putintseva also won three junior tournaments: the 17th International junior tournament Città di Prato 2009, the 31st International junior tournament Città di Santa Croce, both in Italy, and the 15th ITF Junior Open in Austria.

In 2010, she lost in the second round of the girls' singles event at the Australian Open. Putintseva advanced to the semifinal at Wimbledon and represented Russia in the Youth Olympic Games in August, where she lost in the semifinal. In the last junior Grand Slam event of this season, the US Open, she reached the final but lost to Daria Gavrilova in straight sets.


In 2012, she won another ITF tournament in Australia, and also received a wild card to the e-Boks Open where she won her first-round match, but then lost to former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovi?, 3-6, 1-6. In May, Putintseva won as a qualifier the Open GdF Suez de Cagnes-sur-Mer, a $100,000 event in France. As a result, she jumped to world No. 122.

At the 2013 Australian Open, Putintseva defeated Christina McHale in three sets. She then lost to Carla Suárez Navarro in three tight sets. At the French Open, she stomped the world No. 44 Ayumi Morita. Her next opponent was the 2012 French Open finalist Sara Errani who defeated her in straight sets.

At the 2014 PTT Pattaya Open, Putintseva was defeated in the first round by qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru in three sets. Putintseva reached the quarterfinals of the Swedish Open losing to Jana ?epelová, and of the Japan Women's Open losing to Samantha Stosur.

She reached the second round at the 2015 French Open and Wimbledon losing to eventual quarterfinalist Elina Svitolina and to Venus Williams, respectively.

2016: First Grand Slam quarterfinal

At the Australian Open, she upset former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in the first round, winning in three sets.[2] She lost in the third round to Margarita Gasparyan. Putintseva reached semifinals in Kaohsiung, where she lost to the eventual winner Venus Williams. At her next tournament, the Qatar Open, Putintseva earned a straight-sets win over Anna Karolína Schmiedlová, but lost to Timea Bacsinszky in the following match. At Indian Wells, Putintseva defeated Peng Shuai and earned another upset in 2016 by defeating world No. 27, Kristina Mladenovic in straight sets. She then lost to world No. 1, Serena Williams.

At the French Open, Putinseva beat Aleksandra Wozniak in the first round in straight sets, before going on to beat the No. 28 seed Andrea Petkovic and Italy's Karin Knapp en route to the fourth round, where she upset world No. 14 and No. 12 seed Carla Suárez Navarro before losing to eventual finalist Serena Williams in three sets in her first Grand Slam quarterfinal.

Prior to Wimbledon, she played at the inaugural Mallorca Open and the Eastbourne International, losing both in the first round. At the third Grand Slam event of the year, Putintseva was defeated in round two by the hard hitting Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in straight sets. The following week, she was chosen as part of the Kazakhstan Olympic Tennis team for the Rio Summer Olympics.

To start off the US Open Series tournaments, Putintseva started with a semifinal run at the Citi Open. Seeded sixth, she lost in the semifinals to eventual champion Yanina Wickmayer. She lost to Pavlyuchenkova in the first round of the Rogers Open. She was scheduled to compete at the Brasil Tennis Cup, but withdrew because of injury. This would also cause her to miss the Olympics.

After returning from injury, Putintseva lost in the first round of the Western & Southern Open to qualifier Annika Beck. As a result of her injury before the Olympics, Putintseva was forced to play in the qualifying tournament before the Connecticut Open. Seeded No. 1 in qualifying, she was stunned in the first round by Carina Witthöft. Putintseva next competed at the US Open. She had an easy first-round win over Sabine Lisicki. However, for the second week in a row, she was beaten by Witthöft in three sets. She had early-round losses in many tournaments after the US Open, and lost in the second round of both the Toray Pan Open and the China Open. She finished the season with another second-round loss to Elina Svitolina at the Kremlin Cup.

2017: First WTA final

Putintseva started the season off with a first-round loss in Brisbane to the 2016 US Open finalist Karolína Plí?ková. However, she did compete at the Australian Open as the 31st seed. It was the first time she was seeded at a Grand Slam tournament. She beat Lara Arruabarrena in the first round, but lost to Je?ena Ostapenko in the second. She then competed at the St. Petersburg Open, beating Johanna Larsson (who retired in the second set) and Annika Beck before beating No. 3 and No. 2 seeds Svetlana Kuznetsova and Dominika Cibulková en route to her first WTA final. Her win over Cibulková was her first over a top-5 player.[3] But she then lost to Kristina Mladenovic in three sets. However, her campaign in St. Petersburg ensured a career-high ranking of world No. 27.
