Template:Infobox tennis biography

Katie Boulter (born 1 August 1996 in Leicester) is a British tennis player.

Boulter, who hails from Woodhouse Eaves,[1][2] has won one singles and three doubles titles on the ITF tour in her career. On 19 May 2014, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 581. On 26 May 2014, she peaked at world number 597 in the doubles rankings.

Boulter was ranked the number ten junior tennis player in the world in March 2014.[3] She is based at the Lawn Tennis Association's National Tennis Centre in Roehampton and is coached by Jeremy Bates and Nigel Sears.[4]

Career

Boulter started playing tennis aged 5[4] and went on to represent Great Britain three years later, aged 8.[4] Following in the path of Anna Kournikova, Boulter showed young promise in 2008 when she won the Lemon Bowl in Rome, aged 11.[5] She went on in 2011, aged 14, to become a finalist in the Junior Orange Bowl Tennis Championships in Coral Gables, Florida.[6] Past finalists have included Andy Murray and Caroline Wozniacki. She was awarded the Aegon Junior Player Award that month.[7]

Boulter claimed her first senior doubles title at a $10,000 Sharm el-Sheikh event in November 2013.[8] In January 2014, Boulter went on to have further doubles success and was a finalist at the Australian Open girls' doubles event with Ivana Jorović.[9][10][11]

In May 2014, in Sharm el-Sheikh, Boulter won her first senior singles title over fellow Briton Eden Silva. She also won the doubles title at the same event partnering Nina Stojanović, to whom she had lost a previous final in singles.[12]
