Evgeniya Rodina

Evgeniya Sergeyevna Rodina (Russian: Евгения Сергеевна Родина, born 4 February 1989) is a Russian professional tennis player. She achieved her career-high ranking of #74 on February 28, 2011.

Rodina began her career on the ITF circuit with the assistance of a wildcard into the first round of the main draw of a $25,000 tournament at Moscow in late August 2004, when she was just fifteen and a half years old, and justified the award by taking a set from upcoming fellow-Russian star Elena Vesnina though she lost the match in three.

In January she entered qualifying for a WTA Tour event for the first time in her career, her only previous WTA appearance having been thanks to a main draw wildcard. But far from being a minor-level WTA event, it was a Grand Slam that she chose to tackle first at WTA qualifying level, and more specifically the Australian Open.
In the first round of the qualifying draw she comfortably defeated American star Angela Haynes 6–3 6–0. But then she lost in the second to another American, Bethanie Mattek, 4–6 1–6.

Back in Australia a couple of days before the start of January 2008, she again tried her luck at qualifying for events on the WTA Tour, but suffered a rare bleak run of results as she lost in the first rounds of qualifying in all three tournaments she entered, falling to Julia Schruff of Germany at Gold Coast (1–6 5–7), to Yaroslava Shvedova at Hobart (5–7 6–2 1–6), and to Junri Namigata of Japan at the Australian Open.
