Tsvetana Pironkova Bio and Stats

The tall, lean Bulgarian owns a flat two-handed backhand she's wielded in becoming Venus Williams' major nemesis. Tsvetana Pironkova has scored three Grand Slam wins over Venus. Entering the 2010 Wimbledon with a 1-4 record at SW19, she shocked Williams, 6-2, 6-3, to become the first player representing Bulgaria to reach a major semifinal. In 2011, Pironkova beat Williams by the same score to advance to the Wimbledon quarterfinals where she lost to eventual champion Petra Kvitova. In January, 2014, Pironkova played through qualifying winning eight matches, including three in a row over Top 10 players — Sara Errani, Petra Kvitova and Angelique Kerber — to collect her first career singles title in Sydney. The daughter of athletes, Pironkova is coached by father, Kiril, a former canoe champion, who introduced her to tennis at age four. Her mother, Radosveta, is a former swimming champion.
