CareerEdit

Martinović is the daughter of Ivo and Mara Martinović and she first played tennis aged nine. Her family moved from Bosnia Herzegovina to Austria when she was 12, where she practised in Hermagor. At the age of 17, she won her first WTA points, and after finishing school, she moved to Germany to become a professional tennis player.

She improved her ranking to 187 in 2008 when she reached the third round of qualifying for the French Open and also played qualifications at Wimbledon and the US Open the same year. In her career, she has won 13 singles and eleven doubles titles. In 2006, she was acknowledged as "one of the most successful players" on the European circuit by Tennis Europe, the sanctioning body of European women's tournament of the ITF Women's Circuit.

At the end of 2012, Martinović ended her career. She had won over $130,000,[1] and is now working as coach at the Swiss Tennis Academy.[2] in Biel, Switzerland.
