Early yearsEdit

Haddad Maia started playing tennis at the age of 5. She comes from a tennis family of Lebanese descent[1]. Both her mother Lais Scaff Haddad and her grandmother Arlette Scaff Haddad were successful tennis players in Brazil[1].

Haddad Maia peaked at No. 15 in the ITF junior rankings. She won her first professional doubles title at the ITF $10k tournament in Mogi das Cruzes in September 2010 aged 14 playing, alongside Flávia Guimarães Bueno and her first professional singles title at the $10k tournament in Goiânia in 2011 aged 15.

Her best achievement as a junior player was being doubles runner-up at the French Open twice in 2012 and 2013 partnering with Paraguayan Montserrat González and Ecuadorian Doménica González respectively. She was also a doubles semifinalist at the Wimbledon Championships in 2011 playing alongside Mayya Katsitadze from Russia.

She turned professional in 2014. In December 2014, she was Brazil's second highest ranked female tennis player.

She made her WTA-level main draw debut at the 2013 Brasil Tennis Cup in Florianópolis as a wild-card. She scored her first WTA Tour main-draw win against Hsu Chieh-yu in the first round before losing to Melinda Czink in the second round. At the same tournament, Haddad Maia made her WTA-level doubles main-draw debut with partner Carla Forte. She defeated Mailen Auroux and María Irigoyen in the first round before losing in the quarterfinals to Kristina Barrois and Tatjana Maria.

In 2014 she was awarded a wildcard at both the 2014 Rio Open and 2014 Brasil Tennis Cup main draws, losing in the first round of singles and doubles of both tournaments.

In February 2015, aged 18 and ranked 234th, she reached the quarterfinals of the Rio Open as a wildcard, defeating two higher ranked opponents, María Irigoyen and top 100 Polona Hercog. In the quarterfinals against 16th ranked and first seed Sara Errani, she had three match points, but eventually retired in the third set due to injury. Playing alongside Teliana Pereira, she reached the semifinals in the doubles competition but was forced to withdraw due to the injury sustained in the singles competition. Haddad Maia played qualifying tournaments at Charleston and Bogotá during the clay season, reaching the main draw of Bogotá where she ultimately lost in the second round.

At Bogotá, Haddad Maia won her first WTA Tour doubles title, alongside compatriot Paula Cristina Gonçalves, defeating Irina Falconi and Shelby Rogers in the final. She played the qualifying tournament at the 2015 French Open but was knocked out by Olivia Rogowska after winning her first two matches. During the grass season, she played the qualifying tournaments of Nottingham and Wimbledon, but failed to reach the main draw of both.

In July 2015, she suffered a shoulder injury at the Pan American Games in Toronto, resulting in season-ending surgery.

In 2016, Haddad Maia was awarded wild cards at the Rio Open (where she also played doubles, losing in the first round), Miami Open, making her debut at a Premier tournament, and Brasil Tennis Cup losing in the first round in all three tournaments. She also played qualifying tournaments at the French Open and US Open losing in the second and first round of qualifying respectively.

Having fallen to the 367th position in the rankings by July 18, 2016, Haddad Maia recovered almost 200 spots during the second half of 2016, finishing the year with two consecutive $50k titles in Scottsdale and Waco, finishing the year ranked 170th in the world.

2017: Grand Slam main-draw debut, top 100 debut, first singles finalEdit

Haddad Maia started her 2017 season in Australia, playing two tournaments in Perth before winning the $25k in Clare in both singles and doubles with partner Genevieve Lorbergs. She received a wild card for the Miami Open, defeating Lesia Tsurenko in the first round before losing to Venus Williams in her second match. She played the qualifying at Monterrey, but lost in the qualifying competition to Kristie Ahn, after winning her first two matches.

At Bogotá, she once again played the qualifying tournament and won an entry to the main draw. She lost in the first round to Verónica Cepede Royg. In the doubles tournament, she won her second title at the event. Playing alongside Argentinian Nadia Podoroska, she defeated Cepede Royg and Magda Linette in the final.

During the European clay season, she entered the qualifying tournament at Stuttgart, but lost in her opening match. At the Prague Open, she defeated two top 100 players, Ekaterina Alexandrova and Donna Vekić, in the qualifying to enter the main draw, in which she subsequently defeated Christina McHale (ranked 45th) and Samantha Stosur (19th), recording her first career wins over top 50 and top 20 players respectively, before falling to Kristýna Plíšková in the quarterfinals. She left Prague ranked 115th in the world. Her win over Stosur was the first win for a Brazilian over a top 20 player since Niege Dias defeated Arantxa Sánchez Vicario in the 1987 US Open.

The following week, Haddad Maia had the best performance of her career at the $100k in Cagnes-sur-Mer, where she won the title without dropping a set, defeating Jil Teichmann in the final. As a result, Haddad Maia made her debut in the top 100 of the WTA rankings.

As the third seed at the French Open's qualifying tournament, Haddad Maia won all three of her qualifying matches, earning a spot in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in her career. In the first round, she faced the 14th seed Elena Vesnina and was defeated in three sets. Also on clay, she reached the semifinals of the Bol Open, a WTA 125K series event, before losing to eventual champion Aleksandra Krunić. As a result, she climbed to the 94th place in the rankings on June 12.

During the grass season, she played the qualifying of Mallorca and reached the main draw, losing to Shelby Rogers in the first round. In Eastbourne, she lost in the first round of qualifying to Mona Barthel. Haddad Maia received her first direct acceptance at a grand slam main draw at Wimbledon, where she beat Laura Robson in the first round. Haddad Maia's victory marked the first time a Brazilian woman won a Wimbledon main draw match since Gisele Miró in 1989. Haddad Maia lost in the second round to the second seed Simona Halep. In the doubles competition, after defeating the 6th seeds Abigail Spears and Katarina Srebotnik in the first round, she reached the third round with Croatian partner Ana Konjuh, where the team lost to 9th seeds Chan Hao-ching and Monica Niculescu.

During the hard court season, she entered the Cincinnati Premier 5 qualifying tournament, where she reached the main draw and defeated Lauren Davis in the first round before eventually losing to fourth seed and eventual champion Garbiñe Muguruza in the second round. She entered the New Haven qualifying, but lost in the first qualifying round to Christina McHale. At the US Open Haddad Maia lost in the first round to Donna Vekić. Playing once again alongside Ana Konjuh, she lost in the first round of the doubles competition to 13th seeds Kristina Mladenovic and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

She gained her first direct acceptance at a WTA-level tournament at the Korean Open. Haddad Maia reached her maiden tour-level singles final at the tournament, losing to first seed and French Open champion Jeļena Ostapenko. In the process, Haddad Maia became the first Brazilian to reach a non-clay court final since Cláudia Monteiro in the 1983 Pittsburgh Open and secured her debut in the top 60 of the world rankings.[2]

Haddad Maia was seeded second in the qualifying round of the last Premier Mandatory of the year, in Beijing, but she lost in her opening match against Andrea Petkovic. At the Tianjin Open she defeated fourth seed Donna Vekić in the first round, but ultimately lost to qualifier Sara Errani in the following match.

Haddad Maia finished her 2017 season at the Luxembourg Open, where she was seeded at a WTA-level tournament for the first time in her career. She lost in the second round of singles competition to Johanna Larsson, and in the quarterfinals of the doubles tournament playing alongside Verónica Cepede Royg to Varvara Lepchenko and Fanny Stollár.


Haddad Maia started her 2018 season playing two WTA International tournaments. In Auckland she was defeated in the first round by fourth seed Agnieszka Radwańska and in Hobart she scored her first win of the season against wildcard Lizette Cabrera, but ultimately lost to second seed and eventual champion Elise Mertens in the second round. At the Australian Open she once again defeated Cabrera in the first round, but was eliminated in the following match by sixth seed Karolína Plíšková. Haddad Maia's victory in the first round marked the first time a Brazilian woman won an Australian Open main draw match in the Open era and the first time since Maria Esther Bueno reached the final in 1965. At the doubles tournament, Haddad Maia played alongside Sorana Cîrstea and reached the third round, defeating fifteenth seeds Alicja Rosolska and Abigail Spears en route, before being eliminated by fourth seeds Lucie Šafářová and Barbora Strýcová.

After the Australian Open, Haddad Maia played for Brazil at the American Fed Cup Zone. She played six rubbers between both singles and doubles and won five of them. At the Mexican Open in Acapulco, Haddad Maia defeated Heather Watson in the first round but ultimately lost to second seed Kristina Mladenovic in the following match. She played alongside Verónica Cepede Royg in the doubles competition, but lost to fourth seeds Lara Arruabarrena and Arantxa Parra Santonja in the opening round.

Haddad Maia was eliminated by Monica Puig in the opening round of Indian Wells, the first Premier Mandatory of the year. In Miami she defeated Heather Watson and 31st seed Zhang Shuai to score her first back-to-back tour matches wins since her campaign to the 2017 Korea Open final before losing to sixth seed Jeļena Ostapenko in the third round.

She started her clay season in Charleston, but was forced to retire in her first round match against Lara Arruabarrena due to an left wrist injury. She then withdrew from Bogotá and Istanbul due to the injury sustained in Charleston. At the Prague Open she was eliminated in the first round against seventh seed and eventual runner-up, Mihaela Buzărnescu. She enterer the qualifying tournament in Madrid as the fifth seed, but was defeated by Sara Errani. Haddad Maia was forced to withdraw from the remaining of the clay-court season and the grass season due to a lower back injury and a subsequent surgery.


Haddad Maia qualified for the Australian Open, reaching the second round of the main draw. She also reached the quarterfinals, out of the qualifying, at the WTA Tour event in Acapulco in late February before losing to eventual champion, Wang Yafan.

Again out of the qualifying, Haddad Maia reached the semifinals at the Copa Colsanitas, losing to eventual champion Amanda Anisimova.

After retiring due to injury in the first round of qualifying at the French Open, Haddad Maia played a WTA 125K series event in Bol, Croatia during the second week of the French Open. It was there, following a first-round loss to Sara Sorribes Tormo that she reportedly failed the urine test.[3]

The ITF's announcement stated[4] that Haddad Maia waived the right to an immediate appeal. A full hearing to determine the charge against her will be held at a later date.


In February, the ITF issued the verdict, realizing that the supplement ingested was contaminated. It defined the suspension for ten months, already considering the time she was away. The federation's report didn't release her from responsibilities, citing the case of three other Brazilian tennis players who have already found themselves in a similar situation: Marcelo Demoliner, Thomaz Bellucci and Igor Marcondes. He got rid of a bigger sentence, which could go from two to four years.[5] Bea would be free to return on May 22, 2020, the eve of the Roland Garros tournament. However, without ranking, she could not compete in French Grand Slam event, having to start in small tournaments again. [6] [7]

Due to the pandemic of COVID 19, she returned to play in September 2020, at the ITF of Montemor-o-Novo, in Portugal.[8]
