Athlete Biography

Anastasia Rodionova will partner with her sister Arina in the women’s doubles at her second Olympics in Rio, becoming one of nine sets of siblings on the 2016 Team.

Ranked world no.38 in doubles, Anastasia’s strongest performance in the past 12 months was at the 2016 Australian Open where she made the quarter-finals alongside her sister before going down to Chinese pair Yifan Xu and Saisai Zheng. In September 2014, she peaked at world number 15 in the doubles rankings.

Born in Russia, Anastasia began competing for Australia immediately after gaining citizenship in late 2009.

She went on a remarkable run at the Delhi Commonwealth Games winning gold in both the women’s singles and doubles, before winning silver in the mixed doubles.

Competing at her first Olympic Games four years ago in London, Rodionova lined up alongside partner Jarmila Gajdosova, who she had made the 2012 French Open quarter-finals with, in the women’s doubles. The pair were knocked out in the first round of the tournament after going down 6-1, 6-4 to the sixth seeded Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina.
