Focus 2012: Elena Baltacha
Edition Date: 
18/05/2012

Britain’s top-ranked female has struggled with illness, but recent seasons have seen her able to play more consistently...

In 2010 she recorded wins over top-10 opponents Li Na and Francesca Schiavone, and followed that up with a win in the AEGON Nottingham Challenge in 2011.

Currently ranked 63 in the world, Baltacha will likely have to rely on receiving one of six wildcard places awarded to players outside the top 56, who qualify automatically for the Games. She has admitted that it could be her competitive swansong, however, saying: “If I’m struggling with injuries, then I’m not going to carry on.”

Age in 2012 28
