Mirjana Lučić-Baroni is a professional Croatian tennis player who is undergoing a resurgence wrapping up 2016 as world no. 81 - her third top 100 finish in a row. In 2016 she reached the finals of Strasbourg and quarter-finals of Acapulco. She enjoyed a promising career on the WTA Tour in the late 1990s, during which she set several "youngest-ever" records. She partnered with Martina Hingis to win the Grand Slam women's doubles title at the Australian Open in 1998 when she was only 15 years old. She won the first ever professional tournament she entered, the 1997 Croatian Bol Ladies Open, and defended it the following year at age 16, making her the youngest player in history to successfully defend a title. She reached the semifinals of Wimbledon in 1999, beating World No. 4 Monica Seles en route. In the 2009 season, she was given a wildcard into the ASB Classic but lost first round. She also came to the tournament in 2011 but didn't make it through qualifying. She made a resurgence on tour in 2011, finally cracking back into the top 100 after a 15-year hiatus. In September 2014 she upset world no. 2 Simona Halep in the third round of the US Open, before losing to Sara Errani in the fourth round. The following week she beat Venus Williams at the Tournoi de Québec singles final to claim the title, which set the record for the longest gap between titles in the Open Era. At the 2015 French Open's 2nd round, Lučić-Baroni upset Halep once again.
