Bio Amanda Anisimova (born August 31, 2001) is an American professional tennis player. She is the second-youngest player ranked in the top 100 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and has a career-high ranking of No. 23 in the world. Anisimova won her first WTA title at the Copa Colsanitas in April 2019 at the age of 17.

Amanda was born in New Jersey to Olga Anisimova and Konstantin Anisimov. She has an older sister, Maria, who played college tennis for the University of Pennsylvania while attending Wharton's undergraduate business school. Her parents emigrated from Russia to the United States a few years before she was born to give their older daughter better opportunities. They worked in the finance and banking industries, and neither played competitive tennis while growing up.

Anisimova started playing tennis at age two. She credits her sister as her inspiration for taking up the sport, saying, "When I was little she was playing tennis. I always saw her playing, and I wanted to do it too. That's how I got into it and my parents got into it too." Her family moved to Florida when she was very young, so Amanda and her sister would have more opportunities to train and find other coaches. Her father long acted as her primary coach while she was a junior, and her mother has also helped coach her. Additionally, she had worked with Nick Saviano starting from when she was 11 years old. Max Fomine, who has also been an assistant coach for the Bryan brothers, has served as her travelling coach.

On the pro tour, Anisimova defeated a top 150 opponent before turning 15. She won her first ITF pro circuit title less than a year later. She then rose to prominence at the 2018 Indian Wells Open by recording her first top 10 victory against Petra Kvitov√° while still 16 years old. Anisimova first cracked the top 100 in 2018. Her next breakthroughs came at the first two Grand Slam events of 2019. At the Australian Open, she upset No. 11 Aryna Sabalenka, one of the leading contenders for the title, to reach the fourth round. She then upset the defending champion and world No. 3 Simona Halep at the French Open to become the youngest semifinalist at the tournament in over a decade.
