With both parents (as coaches) and her younger sisters (Kateryna and Valerie) in the tennis world, it’s easy to see that tennis runs in the blood of the Bondarenko family.
The Beijing Olympics are very important to her in both the singles and doubles (with her sister) arena, as she has never been to the Olympics before.
At age 20 (birthday August 13, 1984), she made her debut as the Australian Open. Though she didn’t do as well as she had hoped there, 2006 saw her rise quickly through the ranks into the top 100 and close to the top 50.
While she admits to fighting with her sister on the court, she still holds that it’s a positive that she plays doubles with her sister instead of someone else.Picture Credit: Faniq.com, PicApp.com
