Sachia Vickery (born May 11, 1995) is an American professional tennis player. She broke into the top 100 players in the world for the first time in 2018 and ultimately reached a ranking of 73 in the WTA standings.

Her best results in the WTA Tour were in the Auckland 2018 and Monterrey 2018 tournaments, where she reached the semifinals in both. Vickery, a USTA junior champion, has so far won three titles in singles and three titles in doubles in ITF competitions.

Early Life and Background:

Vickery was born in Florida. Her parents, Paula Liverpool and Rawle Vickery, lived in Linden, the second-largest city in the Caribbean country of Guyana, before her birth. Her mother is originally from the small mining town of Kwakwani. Vickery's mother participated in track and field during high school, and her father was a professional football player. She also has an older brother named Dominic Mitchell, who played football at the University of South Carolina. Through her stepbrother, Derrick Mitchell, Vickery got acquainted with LeBron James and considers his mother, Gloria, like an aunt to her.

Vickery's parents separated when she was still a child. Her mother, who was previously a teacher in Guyana, worked at the front desk of Kaplan University and also worked nights as a bartender in a dangerous area of Miami to afford Sachia's tennis expenses. When Vickery started achieving good results in junior competitions, she began her tennis training at the IMG Academy. While in Miami, she spent one summer working with Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena. After a year, she relocated to France to train for several years at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy. By the time she turned 18, she returned to Florida to be at the USTA National Training Center in Boca Raton.

Junior Career:

Vickery reached her highest ITF junior ranking at world number 6. She achieved her first significant result in the juniors when she reached the finals of the USTA Grade 1 Spring Championships in 2010 at the age of 14. The following year, she made it to the semifinals of the Orange Bowl. At the start of the 2012 season, Vickery secured her only Grade 1 win at the Copa Del Cafe in Costa Rica. She played her last ITF junior event in November of that year. Vickery concluded her junior career by winning both the singles and doubles events at the USTA Junior National Championships, which also granted her two wildcards for the main draw singles and doubles events at the US Open.

Early Years Sachia Vickery at the 2015 French Open qualifiers: Vickery played her first professional match in 2009 at a $10,000 tournament in Evansville, where she reached the semifinals. In 2011, she received a wild card to enter the Washington Open qualifiers but lost in her opening match.

As the 2013 USTA Junior National Champion, Vickery secured a wild card to compete in the US Open main draw. She triumphed over Mirjana Lučić-Baroni, a previous Wimbledon semifinalist, securing her first WTA tour level win in her tour debut. This victory propelled her into the WTA top 200 for the first time. She consistently stayed within the top 200 players globally for the next four and a half years, except for two weeks in 2016, but did not enter the top 100 until March 2018.

In 2014, Vickery received another wild card for the Australian Open main draw, where she was defeated by fellow American Lauren Davis in the first round. Early in 2015, Vickery clinched her first two ITF Women’s titles in back-to-back weeks in Florida, both on clay. In these two years, Vickery reached two WTA semifinals, one in Stanford in 2014 and another in Nottingham in 2015. She qualified for the main draw in both events. Vickery also entered the main draw for Wimbledon in 2015 and the French Open in 2016.

Vickery made her way through the qualifiers at the US Open and defeated Natalia Vikhlyantseva in the first round, marking her first Grand Slam main draw win in the last four years. She followed this victory with her biggest professional title win at the Central Coast Tennis Open, a $60,000 event.

2018: Top 100 At the Auckland Open in January, Vickery reached her first WTA Tour semifinal, marking the best result of her career. On her way to this stage, she defeated defending champion Lauren Davis and former world No. 2 Agnieszka Radwańska, before falling to the world No. 2, Caroline Wozniacki. Entering the main draw of the Indian Open, she upset world No. 3 Garbiñe Muguruza, registering the biggest win of her career. She subsequently lost in the third round to eventual finalist Naomi Osaka. Before the tournament, she was ranked within the top 100 players in the world for the first time. This result saw her achieve a new career-high ranking of world No. 89. Vickery concluded the season by reaching her second semifinal at the Monterrey Open.
