Ana Konjuh is the best 18-year-old in the world. She is also the youngest player to win a WTA singles title in a decade. Konjuh reached her career high singles ranking of 48 in October and has earned more than USD$1.2 million in her three years on tour. The Croatian’s ascent has been steady since her WTA debut as a 16-year-old. She had never been past the third round of a Grand Slam until she beat world no. 4 Agnieska Radwiesnka 6-4 6-4 at this year’s U.S. Open. In 2013 she became the world junior no. 1, as well as the Junior Australian and US Open champion. Tournament director Karl Budge noticed her potential and signed a three-year-deal with Konjuh’s team. The ASB Classic has a proud tradition of fostering young talent and wanted to ensure Konjuh’s loyalty to Auckland. It paid off for both New Zealand tennis fans and the young Croatian when Budge gave her a main draw wild card for the 2014 ASB Classic. On her debut at WTA-level, she stunned top seed and world number 14, Roberta Vinci, in the first round in three sets. In 2015 she beat 8th seed Mona Barthel in the first round, before falling to Elena Vesnina. She wasn’t able to play the 2016 ASB Classic due to injury. Konjuh's coach is Kristijan Schneider. She moved to Zagreb at age 11 to improve her tennis. She has three sisters Andrea, Antonia and Antea. After winning the Australian Open junior title in 2013 she got permission from her parents to get a tattoo on left wrist that says 'faith'.
