Anna Chakvetadze is a Russian professional tennis player. On September 10, 2007, she reached her career-high professional singles ranking of World No. 5. She has won eight WTA Singles Titles and appeared in the 2007 US Open semifinals. As of March 11, 2011, Chakvetadze is ranked World No. 49.


She began playing tennis at the age of eight after being introduced to the sport by her mother, Natalia. She travels for tournaments with her father. She speaks both Russian and English.

Anna's home invasion in late 2007, and her poor health in the 2010-2011 season has been attributed to her recent decline in performance.

Chakvetadze started the year with a first round loss at the 2011 Brisbane International to compatriot Ksenia Pervak. She again lost in the first round at the 2011 Moorilla Hobart International, this time to Sara Errani. She defeated Olga Govortsova in the first round of the 2011 Australian Open but lost in straight sets to Petra Kvitová in the second round.

At the 2011 Dubai Tennis Championships she collapsed due to a virual illness and couldn´t complete the 2nd round match against 1st seed, Caroline Wozniacki after having crushed Daniela Hantuchova 6-1 6-3 in the 1st round. She lost the first set 6-1 and collapsed at 5-3 up when she had a set point. It was later confirmed that Anna collapsed due to a GI illness that she had been suffering from since before the tournament. As a result, she did not play the Qatar Ladies Open. At the 2011 BNP Paribas Open, she defeated Japanese qualifier, Misaki Doi in the first round but retired against face 24th seed, Maria Kirilenko in the second round down 6-2 1-3. She then missed the 2011 Sony Ericsson Open due to illness.

Chakvetadze returned to competition at 2011 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. She is first seed in qualifying rounds.
