Nadia Natacha Podoroska (Spanish pronunciation: [?naðja poðo'?oska]; born 10 February 1997)[1][2] is an Argentine professional tennis player. She competed at the 2020 Summer Olympics.[3]

Podoroska has won one doubles title on the WTA Tour, as well as 14 singles and seven doubles titles on the ITF Circuit. On 12 July 2021, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 36 and she peaked at No. 66 in the WTA doubles rankings on 16 August 2021.

Early life

Podoroska was born on February 10, 1997 in Rosario, Santa Fe Province, Argentina. She grew up in a middle-class family in Fisherton, a neighborhood founded in the late 1880s by railroad workers. She is one of three children born to father Marcelo and mother Irene; she is of Ukrainian descent as her grandparents were Ukrainian but she does not speak the language at all.[4] Her father was a watchmaker by profession who over the years became a pharmacist, and her mother is also a pharmacist. She was the first in her family to play tennis, a sport that she began to practice at the Fisherton Athletic Club at the age of five. As a child, she followed the performances of the Argentine male tennis players, especially Guillermo Cañas, although not so much of the national female representatives because they were broadcast infrequently on television. Among the female tennis players, she admired sisters Venus and Serena Williams.[5]

Her first years on the circuit were complicated, due to financial difficulties to compete internationally. In late 2017, she suffered several injuries that put her career in jeopardy. Upon her return, she took the decision of going to live in Alicante, Spain, to settle in Europe and have greater chances of competing weekly. In addition, she began to be trained by Juan Pablo Guzmán and Emiliano Redondi. She added Pedro Merani to her team, with whom she performs a mental training based on bompu zen and neuroscience, an aspect that she considered important to change her attitude towards tennis and its matches.

Professional career

2020: French Open singles semifinal, top 50, Newcomer of the Year

In October, Podoroska became the first qualifier to reach the semifinals of the French Open when she beat third seed Elina Svitolina in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros.[6] Podoroska was named the WTA Newcomer of the Year for her rankings achievement and her solid performance throughout the season.[7]

2021: French Open doubles semifinal, top 40 singles & top 100 doubles debut, Olympics debut

She continued her good form when she reached the quarterfinals of the Yarra Valley Classic by defeating fourth seeded Petra Kvitová.

In May, at the Italian Open, she defeated 23 times Grand Slam champion and eighth seeded Serena Williams in the second round. This was her third top-10 win in the last eight months.[8] Williams was playing her 1000th match of her career.[9]

At the French Open Podoroska lost in the first round to tenth seed Belinda Bencic but reached the semifinals in doubles, partnering with Irina-Camelia Begu for the first time. As a result, she reached the top 40 in singles at World No. 40 and top 100 at No. 69 in doubles for the first time in her career on 14 June 2021.

National representation

Playing for Argentina Fed Cup team, Podoroska has a win/loss record of 12-8.[10]

She qualified to represent Argentina at the 2020 Summer Olympics and defeated Kazakh Yulia Putintseva by retirement[11] to reach the second round, and Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova to reach the third round. Podoroska became the first Argentine woman to reach the round of 16 in Olympic tennis in the 21st century in singles. Only two Argentine female players have reached it 25 years ago, Gabriella Sabatini and Inés Gorrochategui in 1996 in Atlanta.
