Ana Bogdan is a Romanian professional tennis player who was born on November 25, 1992, in Sinaia, Romania. Starting the sport early, at the age of 4 to be precise, the Romanian’s talent was evident to see right from the start. Despite devoting herself to tennis, Bodgan enjoys other sports such as horse riding, swimming, and snowboarding.

This early talent translated itself well on the junior tour, with her reaching a ranking as high as world number 2 in 2008. Spending the next few years grinding out some respectable results on the ITF Tour, it was not until 2014 that the Romanian made her WTA Tour debut. It came at the Nurnberger Gastein Open in July, with Bodgan coming through two rounds of qualifying to see off Ajla Tomljanovic in the first round for her first tour-level win.

This success did open more doors for her on the professional tour, with her gradually going deeper and deeper at tour level competitions. 2016 was a memorable year for Bogdan, with her reaching her first-ever WTA Tour-level semifinal in Brazil before going on to qualify for that season’s US Open. At her first Grand Slam main draw, she got through the first round, winning on her debut appearance.

The Grand Slams are where the money and ranking points get serious, and Bogdan really wanted to make the most. Her wish was granted in 2018 when she recorded her joint career-best Grand Slam result, reaching the third round of the Australian Open.

As the years progressed, she gradually became a more fully-fledged member of the tour. Proof of this was that 2022 brought with it her first taste of a WTA Tour final. After a brilliant week at the Poland Open, she came up just short at the final hurdle, losing to fifth seed Caroline Garcia.

Just the following season, she broke into the world's Top 40 before then going on to reach the third round of Wimbledon, as well as another tour final (Transylvania Open) in 2024.
