Elly Hakami

Elly Hakami (born August 25, 1969) is a former professional tennis player from the U.S. She played from the mid-1980s until 1997. Hakami is from Tiburon, California.[1] She was ranked world No. 32 in 1988.[2]

After beating Hakami in 1987, Martina Navratilova said of Hakami: "She's a very good player. She seems to be very bright and she's a lot better all-court player than I thought she would be. I thought she served well and she comes out tough."[3]


Hakami is married to Polo Cowan, a tennis pro at the Tiburon Peninsula Club. They have two children, Sonya and Polo, and live in Tiburon, California.[4]
