Tadeja Majerič (born 31 August 1990 in Maribor[1]) is a Slovenian tennis player.

Majerič has won seven singles and three doubles title on the ITF tour in her career. On 25 November 2013, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 111. On 28 January 2013, she peaked at world number 227 in the doubles rankings. She has played for the Slovenia Fed Cup team on three occasions.

Career

2005–2012

Majerič made her ITF Women's Circuit debut in April 2005 as a qualifier at a $10,000 event in Makarska, Croatia. The following year, she reached her first professional final in Zadar, losing in straight sets to Ani Mijačika. 2006 also saw her qualify for the main draw at the WTA Tier IV Banka Koper Slovenia Open in Portorož, defeating Margit Rüütel, Dominika Cibulková and Lucie Hradecká in the qualifying tournament,[2] only to lose to fellow Slovenian Andreja Klepač in round one on her WTA tour main draw debut.[3]

In 2007, Majerič played her first matches in national colours for the Slovenia Fed Cup team.[4] In August 2007, she won her first ITF singles tournament in Palić, Serbia. Her second ITF singles tournament win came two years later in Tanjung Selor, Indonesia. After this, she was given a wildcard for the 2009 Banka Koper Slovenia Open, losing to world number 1 Dinara Safina in the first round.[5]

Majerič made her third appearance for Slovenia, in doubles, at the 2010 Fed Cup. Alongside Maša Zec Peškirič in her home town of Maribor, they defeated Japan in their World Group II playoff rubber. Majerič's first ITF tournament doubles success came in 2010 at her home tournament, the Infond Open. Partnering Andreja Klepač, they defeated the Russian pair Alexandra Panova and Ksenia Pervak in straight sets.[6] Her third singles tournament win in January 2011 came on the Indian grass courts of Muzaffarnagar. She won her second doubles tournament in Samsun, Turkey, in the summer of 2012, but it wasn't until the end of 2012 that she was successful again, winning both singles and doubles tournaments in Pune.[7]

2013

2013 turned out to be Majerič's breakthrough year. A good run in the United States in January saw her reach two finals in successive weeks, winning the first, but losing the second, both $25,000 clay court events.

In February, Majerič qualified for the main draw of the 2013 Qatar Total Open, but lost, again in the first round, to Hsieh Su-wei.[8] After qualifying failures in Katowice and Marrakesh, she travelled to South America, winning a $25,000 ITF singles event in Caracas, gaining enough important world ranking points to earn her a spot in qualifying for the 2013 French Open. After beating María Irigoyen,[9] she faced Argentinian opposition again, this time in the form of fifth seed Paula Ormaechea. Majerič lost in straight sets.[10] In the run-up to Wimbledon, she reached the final of the 2013 Aegon Nottingham Challenge, a $75,000 ITF tournament on grass, where she lost to Elena Baltacha in straight sets. Despite being seeded 23rd at Wimbledon qualifying, she could only reach the second round again, losing to Grace Min.[11]

Further first round main draw exits followed at the WTA International tournaments in Budapest[12] and Bad Gastein,[13] but, at the 2013 Baku Cup, Majerič reached the quarterfinals,[14] winning her first career WTA tour main draw matches.[15] As a result, she posted a career-best ranking of world number 115.[16]

Majerič was seeded 16th in qualifying for the US Open in August, but lost in three sets to Julia Cohen.[17] Back on the ITF circuit in September she made the second round of the Trabzon Cup, but lost in qualifying for Guangzhou and Tokyo[18] on the WTA tour. Her next event followed at the Governor's Cup in Lagos, the first of two $25,000 ITF tournaments in the Nigerian metropolis. Here in Africa Majerič won her third title of the year, defeating fellow Slovenian Dalila Jakupović in straight sets in the final.
