German tennis is often recognized for its consistent production line, and Hamburg-born Tamara Korpatsch might be the next one on the list. The 23-year-old has made a very impressive start to her career, having already picked up ITF Title wins on an impressive seven occasions out of just ten finals. A tenacious and gritty professional, she’s already reached as high as 124th – and will almost certainly go higher in the WTA rankings.
Her WTA debut came in 2016, when she took part in the Ladies Championship Gstaad, playing alongside Ekaterina Yashina. Her first title win came in 2015, defeating Vendula Zovincova in an impressive Final in Brno. Since then, she has won every final that she has reached – including titles at home in Darmstadt, Horb, Bad Saulgau and Hechingen.
Her most recent win came against the impressive Timea Bacsinszky, defeating her in an impressive Finals performance in Biarritz, France. For many, the next logical step for Korpatsch will be to take on the challenge of the Grand Slams, and see how much progress she can make at this most challenging of levels.
Given her progress so far as a professional, though, she’ll likely handle it with consummate ease.
