Lubomira Bacheva (Bulgarian: , born 7 March 1975) is a retired tennis player from Bulgaria. She reached her career-high ranking of world No. 68 on 1 November 1999.

Tennis career

As a junior, Bacheva won the European Championships in 1989 and 1991.[1]

Bacheva turned professional in 1990 and spent several years on the ITF Women's Circuit building up her ranking. In 1999, she finally broke through the top 100 and reached her first WTA Tour semifinal at the Estoril Open as a lucky loser. She finished that year at No. 73. She finished 2000 again in the top 100. In 2001, she beat Chanda Rubin for her career best win. She played her last professional match in 2004—a first-round loss to Dally Randriantefy in an ITF event.

Bacheva won no WTA Tour singles titles, but did win two doubles titles in Casablanca and Budapest respectively. She was a member of the Bulgarian Fed Cup team from 1993 to 1996[2] with a win-loss record of 1-6.
