Barbora Strycova

Barbora Strýcová is a professional female tennis player from the Czech Republic. Her highest WTA Ranking has been World No. 39, a ranking she achieved on July 19, 2010.

She is related to tennis player Sandra Záhlavová by marriage—she is the wife of Záhlavová's cousin. She is noted for her changeover meltdowns and racket abuse by ESPN commentators.

Strýcová was a strong junior player, winning two Grand Slams in girls' singles: the 2002 Australian Open and then defending that title at the 2003 Australian Open. She also won three Grand Slam girls' doubles titles between 2001 and 2003. She reached No. 1 in both singles and doubles on the junior rankings, achieving both in 2002, and was named the ITF Junior World Champion that same year.

In her junior career, she beat several players that went on to become notable in the professional tour such as Maria Sharapova, Anna-Lena Grönefeld, Tatiana Golovin, Shahar Pe'er and Maria Kirilenko. Turning professional in 2003, Záhlavová-Strýcová had already worked her ranking into the top 300 after some good results in ITF Women's Circuit events over 2002. She continued to play mostly ITF Circuit events throughout the year, and made her Grand Slam debut at Wimbledon, qualifying and losing first round to Tatiana Perebiynis. She finished that year ranked at No. 161
