Timea Bacsinszky won her first singles title in 2009, defeating Sabine Lisicki, 6-2, 7-5, in the Luxembourg final. The Swiss would then go six years without a title before capturing a pair of trophies in 2015, in Acapulco and Monterrey. The following year she won the clay title in Rabat. Roughly two weeks later, she cracked the Top 10 (No. 9) for the first time in her career. The Swiss has also had plenty of doubles success, winning three titles—in Budapest, Prague and Luxembourg—in 2010. She made a name for herself on the Grand Slam stage in 2015, when she reached the semifinals of the French Open and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. Bacsinszky has represented her country on numerous occasions, playing for the Swiss Fed Cup team from 2004-07, in 2009 and from 2011-15. She was also a member of the Swiss Olympic Team at the 2008 Games in Beijing.
