Diatchenko at the 2011 US Open

Diatchenko's first Grand Slam tournament was the Roland Garros 2009, where she qualified for the main draw. In the tournament, she upset world No. 75 player Mathilde Johansson before she lost to world No. 1, Dinara Safina.

In 2009, she lost the finals of Pattaya Open with Yulia Beygelzimer to opponents Tamarine Tanasugarn and Yaroslava Shvedova in straight sets, and of Tashkent Open with Ekaterina Dzehalevich to Tatiana Poutchek and Olga Govortsova, in three sets.

In 2010, she lost the final of the WTA International tournament Portugal Open with Aurélie Védy to opponents Anabel Medina Garrigues and Sorana Cîrstea.

At the French Open, she was beaten in the third round in qualifying by Misaki Doi.[2] At the Wimbledon Championships qualifying, she lost in the second round to Monica Niculescu in two sets. Diatchenko also participated in the ITF Women's Circuit where she won the tournament in Darmstadt, Germany; in the final, she beat eighth seeded German player Julia Schruff.

Then she lost her fourth WTA International doubles final with partner Tatiana Poutchek, and the Copenhagen to pair Anna-Lena Grönefeld and Julia Görges.


Vitalia lost in the qualifying at Melbourne in the second round to Sania Mirza in three sets. She then entered the qualifying at Dubai but lost in the first round to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 4–6, 3–6, after being 3–1 ahead in the second set.

Diatchenko qualified for the main draw of the Wimbledon Championships for the first time in her career by defeating Julia Glushko, Maria Elena Camerin and Stéphanie Dubois for her first main-draw in a Grand Slam tournament. In the first round, she was defeated by 25th seed Daniela Hantuchová in three sets. Vitalia was also in the women's doubles with compatriot Maria Kondratieva but they were defeated also in the first round by Vera Dushevina and Ekaterina Makarova.

Vitalia played in the Aegon GB Pro-Series Foxhills. She was seeded first and defeated the fifth seed Marta Sirotkina in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, she retired whilst trailing 2–6, 0–2 to Johanna Konta.

On July 30, Vitalia won the biggest singles title of her career so far at the President's Cup, an $100k tournament held in Astana. She beat the sixth seed, Akgul Amanmuradova in the final. She also won the women's doubles event with Galina Voskoboeva. They defeated Akgul Amanmuradova and Alexandra Panova in the final, also in two sets.

Vitalia participated in the Tatarstan Open in singles and doubles. Alexandra Panova was her doubles partner. Diatchenko was seeded fifth in the singles and first in the doubles. In the first round of the singles, she defeated Eugeniya Pashkova, in the second round Pemra Özgen, and in the quarterfinals Valentyna Ivakhnenko, all in straight sets. In the semifinals, Vitalia retired against wild card (and eventual champion) Yulia Putintseva, after suffering an ankle injury. In the doubles, after winning their first round and quarterfinal matches, Vitalia and Alexandra upset the third seeds Evgeniya Rodina and Valeria Solovyeva in the semifinals. Due to Vitalia suffering an injury in the semifinals of the singles, she was unable to play the doubles final.

Diatchenko played at the US Open where she beat in the first round of the qualifying stages Laura Siegemund. Then she defeated Sesil Karatantcheva also in two sets, and in the final round Marta Domachowska in three for a place in the main draw. This was her first time to qualify for the main draw of the US Open. There, in the first round, Vitalia was defeated by Zheng Jie.

In the Tashkent Open, she fought past Olga Govortsova in three sets before she lost to Alla Kudryavtseva in the second round.[3] In the women's doubles, Vitalia and her partner Eleni Daniilidou beat Lyudmyla Kichenok and Nadiya Kichenok in the final in straight sets. This was Vitalia's first time to win a WTA doubles title in her career.

She qualified for the Generali Ladies Linz but lost in the first round to Ksenia Pervak.

Vitalia suffered a knee injury playing doubles at the Kremlin Cup. This injury has ruled her out from playing tennis for six months.


After her brief appearance on the WTA Tour and her return to the ITF Circuit, she showed her first notable game for years at the Kremlin Cup, where the 140-ranked Vitalia eliminated No. 14 Dominika Cibulková in the round of 16, until being knocked down by Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Diatchenko completed the year by winning her first WTA singles title at the WTA 125K event of Taipei.


In the first round of Wimbledon, she defeated former world No. 1, Maria Sharapova (ranked 22nd at the time).[4] Diatchenko then defeated Sofia Kenin, advancing to the third round of a major tournament for the first time but Jeļena Ostapenko beat her in straight sets.[5]
