Biography[edit] Born in Bojnice, Czechoslovakia, Habšudová originally trained as a gymnast but at the age of ten, she switched to tennis under the encouragement of her mother, herself a former amateur tennis player.[1] By the age of fourteen, she had already become the top junior player in Czechoslovakia.[2] In 1990, she was crowned ITF Junior World Champion, and the following year she won the girls' singles title at the US Open.[3] As a professional, she made the fourth round of the 1991 Australian Open while still a schoolgirl, but her early promise was curtailed by health problems and injuries, including a bout of pneumonia in 1993 and an ankle injury the following year.[4] After suffering another injury just as she had made it to the top 30 in the spring of 1995, she bounced back to enjoy her most successful year in 1996, where she had results such as reaching the final of the German Open and the quarterfinals of the French Open.[1] At the latter event, she beat Martina Hingis

and Anke Huber

and served for a place in the semifinals against Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, but ultimately lost 8–10 in the third set.[5] Habšudová eventually broke the top 10 in early 1997 after reaching the final of the Generali Ladies Linz, becoming the first woman representing Slovakia

to do so.[3] Though she continued to play on the tour until 2003, she never again matched the same success of her breakthrough season, with later highlights including winning the Hopman Cup in 1998 and her only WTA singles title at the Austrian Open in 1999. In 2001, she reached the semifinals of the Wimbledon mixed doubles tournament partnering David Rikl.[6] Following her retirement, she worked for several years as a sports editor.[7] She married her husband Milan Cílek in 2003 and they have three children together.[2] WTA Tour titles[edit] Singles: 5 (1–4)[edit]
