BiographyEdit

Corsato began competing on the professional tour in 1984.

Her best performance in a grand slam tournament was a second round appearance at the 1988 French Open, which she competed in as a lucky loser from qualifying.

In 1989 she was a doubles finalist at the WTA Tour event in Guaruja and made the quarter-finals of the singles at Taranto.[1]

She had her best WTA Tour result in singles at São Paulo in 1990, when she made it through to the semi-finals, in a run which included a win over top seed Eva Švíglerová.

As a member of Brazil's Fed Cup team she featured in a total of seven ties. In a World Group play off tie against Argentina in 1991 she won her only singles match, over Patricia Tarabini.[2]

Later settling in Germany, Corsato married local tennis coach Marek Owsianka.[3]
