Standing at 5 ft 8 in, this Greek professional tennis player was born on the 25th of July 1995, in Athens, Greece. She took up tennis after her parents introduced her to the sport when she was just six years old. Although she was good at what she did, she knew that she had to up her game when she failed in WTA qualifiers for two consecutive years. This was way back in 2012 and 2013. That’s when she decided to move to Barcelona to see if tennis was for her. Once and for all.
The move turned out to be a positive one, and in 2014, this Greek lady won four singles titles and four doubles titles on the ITF Circuit. A year later, she qualified for her first WTA tournament, which also happened to be her first Grand Slam event- the US Open. It would take her three more years to reach her first WTA finals. However, her first title didn’t come until 2019. Things have been on the rise for this young woman since then. She understands that success takes time which is why she knows that it is essential to put in the work now to reap the benefits later.
