Caroline Garcia


Caroline Garcia (born 16 October 1993) is a French professional tennis player.

Garcia has won one singles and two doubles titles on the WTA tour, as well as one singles and four doubles titles on the ITF tour in her career. On 23 March 2015, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 25. On 17 August 2015, she peaked at world number 13 in the doubles rankings.

Playing for France at the Fed Cup, Garcia has a win-loss record of 6–3.

2011

At the 2011 Australian Open, she earned a wild card and beat Varvara Lepchenko in the first round in her first appearance in the main draw of a WTA tournament. However she lost to Ayumi Morita in the second round.

Garcia made entry into the 2011 French Open as a wild card. Garcia played Zuzana Ondrášková and defeated her in straight sets. In the second round, Garcia had a 6–3, 4–1, 15–0 lead against former no. 1 Maria Sharapova. Maria won 11 games in a row after being down 1–4 in the set. Caroline Garcia gained a lot of respect for her upcoming talent. Andy Murray said the following via Twitter account, "The girl Sharapova is playing is going to be number one in the world one day ... what a player".[1]


2013

At the 2013 Australian Open, Garcia lost in the first round to no. 47 Elena Vesnina. She then beat qualifier Yuliya Beygelzimer, before losing to eventual champion, Serena Williams, at the French Open. She qualified for Wimbledon.[2] This marks the first Grand Slam for which she qualified; she received a wild card for the previous five. Caroline beat Zheng Jie in the first round, before losing again to Serena Williams in the second round.

She was ranked high enough to gain direct entry to the main draw of the US Open, and beat American wild card Shelby Rogers in the first round, before losing to 30th seed Laura Robson of Great Britain. Her first round win meant that Garcia reached the world's top 70 for the first time.

2014: First WTA title

At the 2014 Sony Open Tennis tournament, Garcia was the only player to win a set against the eventual winner, Serena Williams, as Williams was on her way toward winning her seventh title and setting the record for the most number of titles held by a man or woman at the tournament. At the 2014 Copa Claro Colsanitas in Bogotá, Colombia, Garcia won her maiden WTA tour singles title, beating the defending champion and former World Number 1 Jelena Janković, winning in straight sets.

At the Mutua Madrid Open in May, Garcia reached the quarter-finals of any Premier event for the first time, defeating Angelique Kerber in the first round after the German retired with a lower back injury, receiving a walkover from Maria Kirilenko after the Russian withdrew with a wrist injury, and then defeating tenth seed Sara Errani in three sets in the third round. She eventually lost to third seed Agnieszka Radwańska in the final eight stage, in three sets.[3] Garcia lost in the first round of the 2014 French Open to Ana Ivanovic.

Garcia made the third round of the Wimbledon, eventually losing to Ekaterina Makarova. She lost early at the US Open to American Nicole Gibbs. Garcia rebounded at the 2014 Wuhan Open, defeating Venus Williams and Agnieszka Radwańska back-to-back, with a 7–6 score in the final set tiebreak. She also defeated American Coco Vandeweghe in straight sets to reach the quarterfinals, where she was defeated by eventual champion Petra Kvitová. Despite the loss, Garcia moved up to a career high of 36 in the rankings.
