Silvia Soler Espinosa
While Elche-born Silvia Soler Espinosa might not be a household name outside of Spain, she’s an impressive professional who has broken into the Top 60 of the WTA Singles circuit. At Doubles level, she reached her career peak in 2014, reaching as high as 39th in the Doubles rankings.
She’s also played for Spain at the Fed Cup, and has been a regular participant in WTA Finals and ITF Finals. Though Espinosa is yet to win a WTA Final, losing her two finals so far in Strasbourg, France and the Copa Colsanitas, Colombia, there is no doubting that she has far more to give the sport.
Now in her professional prime, she’s reached the Third Round of the French and US Opens, as well as the Second Round at the Australian Open and at Wimbledon. At ITF level she has won five finals and lost five, with her most recent win coming in June 2016 when she defeated Laura Pous Tio in the Final in Rome, Italy.
At Doubles level, her most recent win came in 2018, when she defeated Jessica Pegula and Maria Sanchez alongside Irina Bara in the Indian Harbour Beach tournament in the US.
