She began playing tennis at the age of 2. She credits her elder sister as her inspiration for taking up the sport, saying, “When I was little she was playing tennis. I always saw her playing, and I wanted to do it too. That’s how I got into it and my parents got into it too.” When she was very young, her family moved to Florida so she would have more opportunities to train and find other coaches. Her father has been her primary coach since then while her mother has also helped coach her. Amanda has since the age of 11 worked with Nick Saviano . Max Fomine, who also serves as an assistant coach for the Bryan brothers, serves as her traveling coach.

Amanda Anisimova ITF

In 2016, Anisimova achieved a career high ITF junior ranking of No. 2 in the world. In early days of her junior career, she entered the 2015 Abierto Juvenil Mexicano ranked outside the top 300, but unexpectedly won the high-level Grade A tournament as a 14 year old. She continued to excel in 2016, winning the Grade 1 Copa del Café and reaching the final at the Grade A Copa Gerdau.  Anisimova was the No. 2 seed at the French Open, on the strength of these results.  She became the first American finalist at the girls’ event since Ashley Harkleroad in 2002 in her second career junior Grand Slam tournament, before finishing runner-up to Rebeka Masarova. In the summer, she competed in the USTA Girls’ 18s National Championship as the No. 5 seed and finished in 4th place

At the age of  15 , Anisimova won two more big titles, the first at the Grade 1 Yucatán Cup in late 2016 and the second at the Grade A Copa Gerdau in early 2017 where she was a finalist a year earlier. After winning  these titles, Anisimova only played in two more ITF junior tournaments that year, both of which were Grand Slams. She finalised her junior career by winning her first Grand Slam title at the US Open, where she defeated fellow American Coco Gauff in the final and did not drop a set during the tournament. She  was also a member of the United States team that won the 2017 Junior Fed Cup, but did not play in the final tie due to illness.

Anisimova received a wild card into US Open qualifying, her first professional tournament, in the summer of 2016. At the age of 14, she won her debut match against world No. 124 Verónica Cepede Royg, before losing in the following round. Anisimova stayed in Brazil and played in an ITF $25K event in Curitiba, after her junior title at the 2017 Copa Gerdau in February. Despite this being her first professional main draw, she reached her first final on the pro tour at the tournament . Anisimova was awarded a wild card into the Miami Open, a few weeks later, where she lost to Taylor Townsend in three sets in her WTA main draw debut.

During the clay court season, Anisimova won the USTA French Open Wild Card Challenge by reaching back-to-back finals at the ITF $80K event in Indian Harbour Beach and the ITF $60K event in Dothan the following week. That perfomance also helped her crack the top 300 of the WTA rankings. She lost her first round match at the French Open to Kurumi Nara, in her Grand Slam debut . However, she became the youngest player to participate in the main draw since Alizé Cornet in 2005. After staying away for the grass-court season, Anisimova continued to play on the ITF Pro Circuit. By capturing her first career professional title at the $60K event in Sacramento towards the end of July while she was still 15 years old, she broke into the top 200.

The 17 year old American Amanda Anisimova defeated Czech veteran and No 5 seed Barbora Strycova 6-3 6-3 on a blustery Centre Court.

The world’s No 33 from the Czech Republic battled hard in this second round match, as she always does, but there was that class about Animisova that showed she could be something special.

Amanda Anisimova WTA Ranking

Her first two tournaments of the year were the inaugural Oracle Challenger Series 125K events at Newport Beach and Indian Wells. She successfully qualified for both main draws, and her semifinal at Indian Wells helped her earn a main draw wild card into the WTA event there the following week. At the Indian Wells Open, Anisimova became the youngest player to reach the fourth round since 2005. She defeated Pauline Parmentier for her first career WTA match win before upsetting No. 23 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and then No. 9 Petra Kvitová, who was on a 14-match win streak. Her run ended against No. 5 Karolína Plíšková. Anisimova was also awarded a wild card into Miami Open. She won her opening match against Wang Qiang despite injuring her right foot in the third set. This injury forced her to withdraw from the tournament and kept her out for four months.[28] At the time, she had risen to a career-high ranking of No. 128 in the world.

In July Anisimova returned to tennis at the Silicon Valley Classic. She made it to the main draw and won her first match back, which was also against Wang Qiang. She later reached the third round of the Cincinnati Open to return to the top 150. Anisimova next entered the Japan Women’s Open, after losing her opening match as a wild card at the US Open. In her first tournament at the age of 17 , she qualified for the main draw and made it to her first career WTA final, dropping just one set overall and none in the main draw before the final. Before finishing runner-up to second seed Hsieh Su-Wei, she defeated top seed and world No. 41 Zhang Shuai in the semifinals. With this results, she also cracked the top 100 for the first time.

Australian Open 2019: Aryna Sabalenka beaten by teenager Amanda Anisimova

Source: bbc.com

American 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova stunned 11th seed Aryna Sabalenka in straight sets to reach the last 16 at the Australian Open.

The youngest competitor left in the draw won 6-3 6-2 to become the first player born in the 2000s to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam.

“This is an unreal feeling, I can’t believe that this is happening right now,” said the tournament debutant.

The world number 87 faces two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova next.

The Czech eighth seed, who won last week’s Sydney International, beat Belinda Bencic of Switzerland 6-1 6-4 in 68 minutes.

“I’m feeling pretty good on the court physically and my mindset’s good. I’m serving well too, which is important,” said Kvitova.

Meanwhile, American Danielle Collins, who overcame 14th seed Julia Goerges in the opening round, moved into round four with a 6-3 6-2 win over France’s 19th seed Caroline Garcia.

Next up for Collins will be 2016 champion and second seed Angelique Kerber, who thrashed Australian wildcard Kimberly Birrell 6-1 6-0 in 58 minutes.

Former world number one Kerber, on her 31st birthday, was far too good for the 20-year-old, who had caused a shock in the second round when she defeated 29th seed Donna Vekic of Croatia.

Anisimova ‘can’t believe’ she won
Anisimova’s only other two Grand Slam appearances at the French and US Opens ended in first-round exits.

The youngster used her power to unleash 21 blistering winners and an accurate first serve on Belarusian Sabalenka, who had been among those fancied to challenge for the title in Melbourne.

“I was expecting a really tough match, she’s a great player, so I really can’t believe I got through this round,” Anisimova said.

“I’m feeling really good out here, I played some great tennis.”

She becomes the youngest American to reach a Grand Slam fourth round since Serena Williams at the French Open in 1998, and the youngest in Melbourne since Jennifer Capriati in 1993.
