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. She backed it up with a quarter-final appearance in 2011 and in 2014 won her first WTA title in Sydney. Pironkova’s 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.
