Career

2015: First WTA doubles title and singles top-10 win

In 2015, she won her first WTA doubles title together with her sister. They escaped a 5-0 deficit in the second set tie-break of their 6-4, 7-6 defeat of Liang Chen and Wang Yafan in the Shenzhen Open final. That made the Kichenoks the second pair of twins, after Karolína Plí?ková and Kristýna Plí?ková, to win a WTA doubles title. They previously had been runners-up at Tashkent in 2011 and Shenzhen in 2014.[1] She won the second WTA doubles title at Brasil Tennis Cup.

During the 2015 Tianjin Open, Lyudmyla caused the biggest upset of the tournament with a top-10 win, over World No. 8 and reigning US Open champion Flavia Pennetta, in the first round for the biggest win of her career so far.[2]

2022: Top 20 debut in doubles

At the 2022 Dubai Tennis Championships, she made the final in doubles, partnering Jelena Ostapenko but they were defeated by Veronika Kudermetova and Elise Mertens.[3]

At the 2022 French Open she reached the semifinals of a Major for the first time in her career partnering again with Ostapenko.[4] She reached the top 20 in doubles on 6 June 2022. The following week, she won her sixth title at 2022 Birmingham Classic with Ostapenko.
