Elena Andreyevna Rybakina, a Russian-born Kazakh tennis player, was born on June 17, 1999, in Moscow.
At No. 12 in the WTA rankings, she is the first Kazakhstani player ever to make it into the top 15.
She is presently Kazakhstan’s top-ranked female singles player. Rybakina has played in eight finals on the WTA Tour, including three at the WTA 500 level, where she has won twice throughout the course of her career.
At the age of 17, Rybakina reached the pinnacle of her junior career, reaching the No. 3 spot with the greatest combined rating of her career. At the Trofeo Bonfiglio, she won a Grade-A championship in 2017 after reaching the semifinals of two Junior Grand Slams.
In June 2018, Rybakina became the first Russian woman to break into the top 200 in the global rankings.
Neither as a junior nor as a professional athlete did she have access to a personal coach, and she didn’t begin working with a travelling coach until early in 2019.
The WTA title and ratings within the top 100 came her way in the middle of 2019 after her first good run on WTA Tour.
Five finals, four in her first five events, were Rybakina’s breakout season in 2020. Due to her 1.84-meter height, Rybakina was able to produce a powerful serve, as well as strong forehand and backhand movements.
