Sandra Klemenschits (born 13 November 1982) is an Austrian tennis player. She has won one WTA doubles title (with Andreja Klepac) and around 39 doubles titles on the ITF Circuit as of July 2013.[1][2]

Career

2013

Klemenschits has had the best season of her career in 2013. She made a main draw appearance in a Grand Slam doubles event for the first time in over two years. Partnering with Romina Oprandi, Klemenschits made it to the second round of Wimbledon, her farthest appearance in a Grand Slam tournament. After Wimbledon, Klemenschits had great success on the European clay with her regular partner, Andreja Klepač. Together they made the semifinals in Budapest and the week after won their first WTA title at Klemenschits' home tournament, Gastein Ladies, in Bad Gastein, Austria.

Personal life

In January 2007 Klemenschits and her twin sister were diagnosed with a rare form of abdominal cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, forcing them to retire. Her sister died of the cancer on 9 April 2008. Klemenschits returned to the doubles tour in July 2008, and has since won more ITF doubles titles as well as her first WTA doubles title in July 2013.[3]
