(16) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
- DOB: 03/07/1991
- Nationality: RUS
- Became Pro: 2005
- Height: 1.77
Pavlyuchenkova secured her first two WTA titles in 2010, winning on the hardcourts of Monterrey and Istanbul.
The teenage prospect has risen to a career-high ranking of 18, but the fourth round of the US Open remains her best result on the biggest stage.
But time is still very much on her side and if her past record is anything to go by, the hardcourts of Melbourne Park would be a likely venue for her to shoot to prominence.
Pavlyuchenkova has an array of shots in her arsenal, with her wristy top-spin forehand a particular trademark.
