Sara Sorribes Tormo is a Spanish professional tennis player who was born on October 8, 1996, in Castellon de la Plana, Spain. After being born to sporting parents – her mother used to teach tennis, and her father used to play football to a professional level – she was destined to follow in their footsteps and enjoy a career in professional sport.

Starting at the age of six, she enjoyed relative success on the junior tour before trying to make the shift to the professional circuit. Playing her first few years at the ITF level, she took her time getting used to the women’s game, all the while trying to chip away at a WTA main draw debut.

After many failed qualifying ventures, she was lucky enough to get her chance on the WTA main draw at the Rio Open in February 2015. Despite losing in the first round, this set her up well as a springboard to bigger and better things.

2016 served as a good year for her to get some valuable ranking points in her game, with her making more and more appearances and, therefore, winning at WTA events. By September, she was ready to take her game to the next level and reached the quarterfinal of the Korea Open, beating number four seed Kristina Mladenovic en route.

The following seasons proved useful for her to get her footing at the top level of the sport, including her first Grand Slam wins. Nothing was as monumental for her as when she claimed her first WTA tournament win in 2021, with her proving too strong for the rest at the WTA 250 tournament, the Abierto Zapopan.

She would add to this accolade a couple of years later when she claimed a second WTA title, winning the Cleveland Open in 2023. In the interim between tournament wins, she achieved some notable results in doubles, reaching the quarterfinals of a couple of Grand Slams, as well as reaching her career-high singles ranking of world number 32.
