Career highlightsEdit

Junior successEdit

Buzărnescu played her first professional match in 2004.[2] She then won the junior doubles title at the 2006 US Open with Raluca Olaru. Seeded No. 2, they defeated the top-seeded pair of Sharon Fichman and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final.[3]

Injuries and hiatusEdit

Shoulder and knee injuries (the latter prompting two surgeries) forced her off the pro tour for years, long enough that she went back to school,[4] graduating a doctorate at the National University of Physical Education and Sport in December 2016.

2017–2018: Entry into top 100 and first WTA titlesEdit

In October 2017, Buzărnescu got to the semifinals of the Linz Open.

In 2018, she reached the finals in Hobart and Prague. At the Internationaux de Strasbourg, she surrendered a lead in the singles semifinals against Dominika Cibulková, eventually losing the match in three sets.[5] She showed more consistency in the doubles, winning the tournament and her first WTA title with compatriot Raluca Olaru in straight sets against Nadiia Kichenok and Anastasia Rodionova.[6]

Buzărnescu then played her first French Open, which was also the first Grand Slam tournament she was seeded. She defeated Vania King in the first round for her first Grand Slam win. Afterwards she also won versus Rebecca Peterson. Against No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina in the third round, Buzărnescu won the match in straight sets. This was her biggest career victory and one of the tournament's bigger upsets. She faced No. 13 seed Madison Keys in the fourth round where she lost in two sets.

In the grass-court season, Buzărnescu reached the quarterfinal of the Nature Valley Open in Nottingham, losing to Naomi Osaka. She also played in the doubles tournament with British partner Heather Watson losing in the final. At the Nature Valley Classic in Birmingham, she once again defeated No. 2 seed Elina Svitolina before losing to eventual champion Petra Kvitova in the semifinals. Buzărnescu then played for a third consecutive week in Eastbourne. She reached the last 16 before losing to Jelena Ostapenko. However, she reached the doubles final with partner Irina Begu.

In August, Buzărnescu captured her first WTA singles title winning in San Jose with a straight-set-victory over Maria Sakkari in the final. Later in August, she played Elina Svitolina once more in the second round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal but unfortunately suffered a serious ankle injury and was forced to retire. This injury kept her out of the game for two months including the US Open but she did reach her best ever ranking of No. 20 in the world. Buzārnescu ended the year ranked 24.

2019Edit

Buzarnescu began 2019 season as the second seed at the Hobart International tournament where she had been runner up the year before. However, she was defeated by Belinda Bencic in the first round. Her bad luck for first-round draws continued when she was paired against Venus Williams in the first round of the Australian Open. Buzarnescu was the 25th seed but former world number one, Venus Williams, won in three sets.

She represented Romania in the World Group-match in the Fed Cup again the Czech Republic held in Ostrava in February. She lost her opening singles match 1–6, 4–6 to Karolina Pliskova.
