Early lifeEdit

Marta is the daughter of Oleh Kostyuk and his wife, Talina (née Beyko). Her father was the technical director of the Kiev junior tennis tournament "Antey Cup", and her mother was a professional tennis player representing Ukraine in the 1990s who reached a career-high WTA ranking of No. 391, winning a $10,000 title in her home city of Kiev in October 1994. With both her parents having a tennis background, Marta started playing tennis in her young childhood at the Antey Tennis Club on the west side of Kiev. Marta described her initial experience in tennis at age 5: "My mom was always working a lot as a coach, and the first time I went to the courts to train, I just understood that if I started doing tennis, I'd get to spend more time with my mom. So that was kind of my motivation - if I played tennis, I'd be around her more often". One of her first coaches was her native uncle Taras Beyko, a respected player for the USSR and Ukraine in the late 1980s and early 1990s.[2][3][4]

CareerEdit

On the junior tour, Kostyuk has a career-high ranking of No. 2, achieved on 30 October 2017. After the 2016 Petits As, she won the 2017 Australian Open girls' singles championships.

In May, she won a ITF tournament in Dunakeszi (Hungary), becoming the youngest Ukrainian to win a professional title in singles-player category. In the whole tournament, she did not lose a single set.

In October, she won the year-end junior girls tournament, the ITF Junior Masters in Chengdu, China.[5]

2018: Grand Slam debutEdit

Kostyuk made her main draw tour-level debut at the Australian Open. Having received a wild card-entry into the qualifying tournament, she defeated Arina Rodionova, Daniela Seguel and Barbora Krejčíková to become the first player born in 2002 to play in a Grand Slam main draw. By defeating Peng Shuai in the first round, Kostyuk became the youngest player to win a main-draw match in Melbourne since Martina Hingis in 1996.[6] In the second round, she defeated Australian wild card Olivia Rogowska in straight sets. In doing this, she became the youngest player to reach the third round of a Grand Slam event since Mirjana Lučić-Baroni reached the same stage at the 1997 US Open.[7] She fell to fourth seed compatriot player Elina Svitolina in the third round.

Notes

  • 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Total Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
