Biography

Tsvetana Pironkova's inspired run through to the semi-finals of The Championships in 2010 made the headlines in her home country, Bulgaria, as she defeated former Wimbledon champion Venus Williams en-route to the last four. That result is the 25-year-old's standout moment to date on the WTA Tour. Pironkova hails from a family with sporting pedigree. Her father, Kiril, was a former canoeist and now acts as her coach, while her mother, Radosveta, used to compete in swimming at the highest level.
