CareerEdit

Kichenok has won four WTA doubles titles, including three with her twin sister Lyudmyla. She has also won four singles and 24 doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. On 6 January 2014 she reached her career-high singles ranking of world No. 100. On 29 January 2018 she peaked at No. 36 in the doubles rankings.

Playing for Ukraine at the Fed Cup, Kichenok has a win-loss record of 5–6.[1]

She and Lyudmyla came back from a 0–5 deficit in the second set tie-break of their 6–4, 7–6, defeat of Liang Chen and Wang Yafan in the 2015 Shenzhen Open final. That made the Kichenoks the second pair of twins, after Karolína and Kristýna Plíšková, to win a WTA doubles title. They had previously been runners-up at Tashkent in 2011 and Shenzhen in 2014.[2]
