Biography

Rebecca Marino (born December 16, 1990 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian professional tennis player. She reached a career-high WTA singles ranking of No. 38 on July 11, 2011 and a career-high WTA doubles ranking of No. 156 on March 21, 2022.

Marino played the first Grand Slam of her career at the 2010 US Open in August. After winning three qualifying matches to enter the main draw, she beat Ksenia Pervak to set up a second round clash with world No. 4 Venus Williams. She lost after a close first set which ended in a tiebreak. After the match, Venus said: "It seemed like every time I had an opening she came up with a big serve, so I guess I know what it is like now playing myself." The next month, she won three straight ITF 50K titles, respectively in Saguenay, Kansas City and Troy. Her winning streak was stopped at 18 with a loss in the semifinals at the ITF 50K in Toronto. In 2011, she reached her first WTA final at the event in Memphis. Also in 2011, she reached the third round of the French Open, her best Grand Slam result so far. She decided in late February 2013 to take an indefinite break from tennis. During her break, she studied English literature at the University of British Columbia and was part of the rowing team. She was also a certified Club Pro 1 coach at the UBC Tennis Centre. Marino started training again during the first week of September 2017 and decided to return to competition in October 2017, after being away from the game for nearly five years. She was scheduled to play the ITF 60K in Saguenay but her comeback was delayed of three months due to ITF administrative regulations. She was eligible to return at the end of January 2018 and won the title in her first tournament back, an ITF 15K in Antalya, not losing a set along the way. The next week, she won her second straight title at the ITF 15K in Antalya, without losing a set once again. Again in Antalya the week after, she captured her third ITF 15K in a row. Playing her fourth straight tournament in Antalya, her first on clay, Marino lost in the quarterfinals, ending her winning streak at 19 matches. In 2024, she won the biggest singles title of her career at the ITF W100 in Irapuato. The same year, she won her second ITF W100 title, this time in Ilkley. Marino was named Female Player of the Year by Tennis Canada two times, in 2010 and 2011.

Marino was born in Toronto to Joe Marino, owner of the construction firm Marino General Contracting, and Catherine Hungerford. The family moved to Vancouver before she turned two. Her father is of Italian descent. Marino's uncle, George Hungerford, won gold for Canada at the 1964 Summer Olympics in rowing. She has a younger brother named Steven, who also competed in rowing at the University of California. At five, Marino's mother signed her up for badminton. Before long, a tennis coach convinced her to switch racquets and she started playing tennis at age 10. At only 14, she won Vancouver’s premier amateur tennis tournament, the Stanley Park Open, becoming the tournament’s youngest champion in 75 years. From August 2008 to April 2009, she trained in Davos, Switzerland with German coach Nina Nittinger. Later in 2009, she moved to Montréal to train at the National Training Centre, and was a member from 2009 to 2011.

Notes

  • 1 The first WTA 1000 event of the year (then a WTA Premier 5) has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Ladies Open beginning in 2009. Dubai was classified as a WTA Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012–2014 period. From 2015 to 2023, the two tournaments alternated between WTA Premier 5 and Premier status every year.
  • NB The tournament in Cincinnati (then a WTA Premier 5) was played in New York City, the French Open was played in September and after the US Open, the Italian Open was also played in September and after the tournament in New York City/Cincinnati (then a WTA Premier 5), and the 2020 Olympic Games were postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
  • NB The WTA 1000 tournament in Indian Wells was played in October and after the tournament in Cincinnati due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021.
