Vania King Bio and Stats

A crafty player who is comfortable from all areas of the court, Vania King and partner Yaroslava Shvedova captured successive Grand Slam doubles championships at the 2010 Wimbledon and U.S. Open. King won her only WTA tour title in Bangkok in 2006 and cracked the Top 50 soon after. The Californian has won 14 tour doubles titles and she reached the mixed-doubles final at the 2009 French Open with Marcelo Melo. Her best major singles results are three third-round appearances: at the 2009 and 2001 U.S. Open and the 2011 French Open. In September, 2013, King reached both the singles and doubles finals in Guangzhou—playing through qualifying in singles—to rise from a pre-tournament rank of No. 124 to 94 after her run to the final. She’s been a participant on the U.S. Fed Cup team since 2006. When she’s not playing tennis, King likes to sing. She regaled the crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium with “America the Beautiful” before one of Andre Agassi’s final matches in 2006, and sang the national anthem at Dodger Stadium before a baseball game in 2009. The youngest of four children, King's brother, Phillip, was a four-time all American at Duke.Vania was coached by her father until the age of 17. She was accepted into Stanford and considered attending college, but opted instead for a pro career.
