Her greatest career achievements have come in doubles, having reached the finals of the mixed doubles event at the 2003 Wimbledon Championships with Andy Ram and the semifinals of the women's doubles event at the 2010 US Open with Cara Black.

Her younger sister Arina is also a tennis professional, and the two sisters have intermittently contested doubles tournaments with modest success. Their most notable achievements as a team came at the 2010 Malaysian Open and 2015 Monterrey Open, succumbing in the super tie-break in the finals of both tournaments.

BiographyEdit

Rodionova started to play tennis at age 7, but she was introduced to tennis much earlier. Her father Ivan was an amateur player so instead of toys, Rodionova had tennis balls in her pram.[citation needed] He coached her until 18 years old when she left Tambov and moved to Germany to practice for three years before returning to Moscow in 2003. She has resided in Melbourne since 2005. Her sister Arina has also been a professional tennis player since 2004.

CareerEdit

 
Rodionova at the 2004 US Open

2006–2007Edit

In 2006, after reaching the second round in the second tournament in Los Angeles, Rodionova entered the top 100 for the first time in her career. At the US Open she became one of the leading players after making it to the third round (her best result in singles at a Grand Slam tournament to date). This catapulted Rodionova to 81 in the world. In doubles with Elena Vesnina she also reached the WTA tournament final in Bangalore, India and she captured her 11th ITF title in Italy in partnership with her sister Arina Rodionova. In 2007 Rodionova played a whopping 28 WTA tournaments. At the Australian Open Grand Slam she reached the second round but lost to world No. 2 and eventual finalist, Maria Sharapova. In Miami's Tier-I tournament Rodionova took more games off the eventual tournament champion Serena Williams in her second round defeat than any other person in that tournament. At the Estoril Open, Rodionova won her second title in doubles with Andreea Ehritt-Vanc from Romania. Together they also made the finals in Morocco. In the first Tier-level tournament in Los Angeles, Rodionova made the semifinals, partnering Tatiana Poutchek. In Guangzhou, Rodionova reached the singles semifinal but was unable to finish the match due to heat stroke. At the Tashkent Open, Rodionova once again teamed up with Tatiana Poutchek making the final, but lost in three sets to Ekaterina Dzehalevich and Anastasiya Yakimova. She ended the year ranked 78th place in singles.

2008Edit

Rodionova started the new season in New Zealand, but it began unsuccessfully as she was forced to retire in the opening round due to eye problems, where she was experiencing double vision. After a short-course of treatment in Melbourne, Rodionova began preparations for the Australian Open. There she played under the Australian flag for the first time and reached the second round, losing to Katarina Srebotnik. ((cn)) In the next few tournaments of Pattaya, Doha and Dubai, Rodionova struggled with her vision with three first-round defeats in singles, but made a doubles semifinal with Arina at the Pattaya Open. Then success increased remarkably, resulting in her gaining several considerable victories over the multiple top-30 players. In India, she defeated the No. 20 in the world, Sybille Bammer from Austria, on the way to the quarterfinal, where she went down to Serena Williams. She carried that confidence through the US series, passing qualification in Miami and reaching the second round, and making the third round in Charleston, losing to Jelena Janković.

May 2008 saw the beginning of a spate of injuries that significantly hampered the rest of the year, taking first-round honours in tournaments that she would have otherwise performed much more brightly. Movement did not restrict her as much in doubles and she made quarterfinals in a Moscow ITF, semifinals in New Haven, third round in the US Open, and semifinals in Guangzhou. However, it was clear that without major hip surgery, Rodionova's career would forever be handicapped. So in September, she underwent a specialised operation in Melbourne and spent the remainder of the year in rehabilitation.[citation needed]

Rodionova underwent major hip surgery in September 2008 in Melbourne[2] to treat an injury that she had carried since Wimbledon 2003.

2009Edit

Results were restricted significantly for the first half of the year, while Rodionova strengthened her hip and built on-court fitness following the hip operation in September 2008. She sustained a badly sprained ankle during first-round singles at Los Angeles in July and was forced to retire. Rodionova represented Australia at the US Open and equalled her career-best third round in singles before returning home to Melbourne to receive intensive treatment on a heavily injured ankle and torn leg muscle. She withdrew from the tournament in Seoul to complete treatment and rejoined the WTA Tour in Tokyo. Her final tournament for 2009 was in Poitiers, France and she ended the season ranked back inside the top 100 at No. 97.
