Viktorija Golubic is a Swiss professional tennis player who was born on October 16, 1992, in Zurich, Switzerland. Growing up in a family passionate about sports, Viktorija picked up a racquet for the first time at age 5.

As is customary for those wanting to break through onto the world stage, the Swiss started out by playing her trade at the ITF level in the hope of getting enough success together to work her way up onto the WTA Tour. Despite making her main draw WTA debut at the 2013 Bad Gastein Open in Austria, winning her first-round match against Kiki Bertens, it was not until 2016 that she started appearing in Tour-level events regularly.

Her breakthrough season, 2016, saw her rack up her first win at the Grand Slam level, at the Roland Garros, the quarter-final of the Libema Open, her first tournament win at the Swiss Open in Gstaad, beating Kiki Bertens in the final, as well as another final at the Austria Open in Linz.

Wanting to improve on her previous season in 2017, she struggled to match her achievements. Keen to regain her form, she dipped into the ITF Tour to try to get some results and springboard herself back onto the WTA Tour.

In 2019 she was seeing signs of a return to her former self, winning the Indian Wells Challenger. Later that season, she also reached the third round of a major for the first time in her career at Wimbledon.

This did wonders for her confidence, eventually resulting in her reaching the quarter-final of Wimbledon in 2021, beating Madison Keys and Danielle Collins along the way. This result would have significantly contributed to her career-best ranking being achieved in early 2022 when she reached number 35 in the world.

Outside the main WTA Tour, successes include an Olympic silver medal in the doubles tournament alongside Belinda Bencic in 2021.
