Veronika Eduardovna Kudermetova [note 1] (born 24 April 1997) is a Russian professional tennis player.[1] She has a career-high singles ranking of world No. 28, achieved on 26 April 2021, and a best doubles ranking of No. 16, reached on 12 July 2021.[3] She has reached a Grand Slam final at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships in women's doubles partnering Elena Vesnina.

Kudermetova won her first WTA Tour singles title at the 2021 Charleston Open, and won her first WTA doubles title at the 2019 Wuhan Open, partnering Duan Yingying. She made her WTA Tour main-draw debut in singles at the 2018 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, and in doubles at the 2014 Kremlin Cup, partnering with Evgeniya Rodina.[3]

Playing for Russia in Fed Cup, Kudermetova has a win/loss record of 0-4.

Career

Kudermetova was born to Eduard Kudermetov, a Russian national ice hockey champion.[4] She started playing tennis at the age of eight.[5] Her younger sister Polina (born 2003) is also a tennis player.[6][7]

2013

Partnering Evgeniya Rodina, Kudermetova won her first $50k tournament at the Kazan Summer Cup, defeating Alexandra Artamonova and Martina Borecká in the final. There, she also reached the semifinals in singles as an unranked wildcard.

2014: Successful transition to the ITF Circuit

Kudermetova reached consecutive $10k finals at Antalya at the start of the year, and after several strong performances, she cracked the world's top 500 for the first time in her career. Playing in her first $100k tournament at the President's Cup, she reached the quarterfinals before falling to compatriot and eventual champion Vitalia Diatchenko.

She ended the year as the No. 343 in the rankings with a 24-14 win/loss record, lifting her maiden ITF title in the process.

2015: Struggles for a breakthrough

2015 saw Kudermetova failing to win a single title on the ITF Circuit as she had a disappointing 15-15 win/loss record with just one final reached. Her year-end ranking was 400.

2016: Success on the ITF Circuit, WTA Challenger debut

After a lackluster start to the year, Kudermetova made her first final of the year at Andijan in May. It was followed by consecutive $25k titles in Imola and Astana, ensuring that she moved into the world's top 300 for the first time. A fourth final of the season in Telavi marked Kudermetova's continuous rise. Her ranking soon made it possible for a direct admission into the main draw of the Taipei Challenger, her debut on the WTA 125K series. She won her first match against Varatchaya Wongteanchai before losing in the second round.

Overall, she enjoyed a 34-18 win/loss record in 2016, with a total of two ITF titles. Her year-end ranking improved by a total of 190 spots, ending the year at the 210th spot.

2017: Grand Slam debut, WTA debut

Her Grand Slam debut came at the Australian Open, where she lost in the first round of qualifying. Attempting a transition onto the WTA Tour, she played qualifying in multiple events but failed to reach the main draw in all of them. Kudermetova won her first qualifying round at the French Open but fell in her next match. She reached her first WTA 125K quarterfinal at the Taipei Challenger to end off the year.

Kudermetova had a 28-24 win/loss record for the year, failing to reach any finals but also making more appearances at tournaments on the WTA Tour.

2018: Top 30 win, first WTA Tour main-draw win

Kudermetova at 2018 French Open

After starting the year with a triumph at the $25k event at the Keio Challenger, she qualified for her first WTA event at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, a Premier tournament. Riding on her momentum, Kudermetova stunned top-30 player Carla Suárez Navarro in the first round before putting up a strong performance against eventual champion and top-ten player Karolína Plí?ková.[8]

She reached the final round of qualifying at the French Open for the first time in her career, where she fell to Barbora Krej?íková. Another big win soon followed as she beat defending champion Anett Kontaveit in the first round of the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships.[9] Furthermore, she went on to stun Belinda Bencic in her next match, reaching her first WTA quarterfinal. She soon reached yet another WTA quarterfinal at the Ladies Championship Gstaad, where she defeated Viktória Ku?mová before falling to Eugenie Bouchard in straight sets.[10]

She had a 34-23 win/loss record for the year, gaining her first success on the WTA Tour and making her transition onto the main tour.

2019: Top 40 singles debut, first Premier-5 doubles title, Top 25 doubles debut

Kudermetova started the year with a quarterfinal run at the Shenzhen Open after qualifying for the main draw, defeating higher-ranked compatriot Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the process.[11] She qualified for the main draw at the Australian Open for the first time in her career, losing to Sofia Kenin in the first round.[12]

At the WTA 125k event in Guadalajara, Kudermetova was unseeded but still managed to lift the biggest title of her career by defeating Marie Bouzková, 6-2, 6-0 in the final.[13] Consecutive WTA quarterfinals came at the Ladies Open Lugano and the ?stanbul Cup

Her first wins in a Grand Slam main draw came at the French Open when she beat Caroline Wozniacki, the 13th seed, in the first round,[14] and Zarina Diyas in the second. Despite winning the first set, Kudermetova was defeated by veteran Kaia Kanepi in the third round.

In July 2019, she reached the second round at Wimbledon, where she was beaten by Wozniacki.[15] Prior to that, Kudermetova excelled at Rosmalen, making the semifinals where she was defeated by eventual champion Alison Riske.[16]

In September, seeded 8th Kudermetova and Duan Yingying won the doubles title at the Wuhan Open, beating newly-crowned US Open champions Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka in the final. It was their first time playing together, and Kudemetova's first doubles title.[17] It took her inside the top 25 at World No. 24 on 30 September 2019 in the world doubles rankings for the first time. She reached the third round in the singles competition, which also took her to a career high singles ranking of World No. 42. In the tournament, Kudermetova beat Belinda Bencic for her first career top-ten win.[18]

It was a fantastic Asian swing for Kudermetova as she reached two semifinals at the Japan Open[19] and the Tianjin Open[20] respectively. To end off her first full season on the WTA Tour, she stunned world No. 4, Elina Svitolina, in the second round of the Kremlin Cup[21] and reached the quarterfinals as a result, falling to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.[22]

A 44-25 win/loss record saw Kudermetova ending the year as World No. 41 as the second highest-ranked Russian, lagging just behind Pavlyuchenkova, having reached a career-high of World No. 39 in singles on 11 November 2019 with three WTA semifinals and one WTA 125k title. She finished the year at World No. 25 in doubles.

2021: Breakthrough: Maiden WTA singles title, top 30 in singles, First Grand Slam doubles final, top 20 in doubles

Kudermetova started 2021 at the first edition of the Abu Dhabi Women's Open. She stunned second seed Elina Svitolina in the quarterfinals[39] en route to her first WTA singles final. She lost in the final to fourth seed Aryna Sabalenka.[40] At the first edition of the Grampians Trophy, she was defeated in the second round by Ann Li.[41]

In April, she won her first and biggest title of her career in WTA 500 singles at the 2021 Volvo Car Open in Charleston defeating Danka Kovinic. She entered the top 30 at a career-high of World No. 29 on 12 April 2021. The following week she won her second doubles title at the 2021 ?stanbul Cup partnering Elise Mertens.

At the 2021 Wimbledon Championships partnering Elena Vesnina, the unseeded pair ousted top seeds and reigning Roland Garros champions Barbora Krejcikova / Katerina Siniakova and Caroline Dolehide / Storm Sanders in the semifinals en route to the finals.[42] They lost to the former number one doubles players and 3rd seeded pair Hsieh Su-Wei and Elise Mertens in a tight three set match, despite having two match points.[43] With this successful run, she entered the top 20 in doubles at a career-high of World No. 16 on 12 July 2021.

Fed Cup

Playing for Russia at the Fed Cup, Kudermetova has a win/loss record of 0-2. She made her debut in February 2014, losing to Australia's Samantha Stosur in straight sets in their World Group first-round tie.[44] She was also nominated to represent her country during the 2018 Fed Cup World Group II, but was only selected to play a dead doubles rubber alongside Anna Kalinskaya.

Playing style

Kudermetova employs a highly aggressive playing style with an all-court game. Her serve is powerful, being recorded as high as 114 mph (183 km/h), allowing her to serve multiple aces per match; a tendency to take risks on her second serve leads to a relatively high double fault count at times. Her forehand and backhand are both hit flat, with relentless depth and pace. She generates considerable racquet head speed when hitting her forehand, allowing her to generate considerable power with this shot. Due to her aggressive playing style, Kudermetova accumulates significant numbers of both winners and unforced errors in any given match. She likes to take the ball early on the rise, allowing her to dominate baseline rallies. Kudermetova is a strong volleyer, and will frequently choose to approach the net to finish rallies and attack short balls; she will sometimes choose to serve and volley to surprise her opponents. She is a quick and nimble mover, allowing her to hit winners from any position on the court.

Endorsements

After wearing Nike and Asics clothes without any personal contract with the brands, Kudermetova became endorsed by Armani for clothing in 2020, although she still uses Nike footwear.[45] For racquets, Kudermetova is endorsed by Wilson, specifically using the Wilson Blade 98 racquet.

Personal life

Kudermetova is married to her coach Sergei Demekhine, who previously coached Vera Zvonareva.[46] They started dating in 2015 despite Demekhine being involved as her coach since 2012, on which Kudermetova commented in 2020: "At the age of 16 I just liked him but I didn't even think about anything more. Probably, it's my upbringing that affected. Such thoughts had been unacceptable to me".[47]
