Alize Cornet’s personal life

She was born in Nice, France to Francis and Patricia Cornet. Cornet also has a brother Sebastien and both of them were encouraged by their parents to get involved in sports. Alize Cornet started playing tennis when she was just 4 years old. Her brother also played tennis but his success was limited. Sebastien decided to hang up his playing boots and became his sister’s agent. Cornet’s junior career was a good one as she won the French Open girls’ title in 2007.

She has been in a romantic relationship with French native Michael Kuzaj. He played tennis at the University of Southern Indiana before competing nationally. He has been serving as Cornet’s tennis agent since 2017. Cornet loves dogs and her favorite players are Rafael Nadal and Naomi Osaka.

Alize Cornet’s senior career

She turned pro in 2006. Cornet was a tough competitor, especially on clay. She received a singles main-draw wildcard in the 2005 French Open. She was ranked 645th when she entered the tournament. However, she managed to impress the fans and critics as she upset Alina Jidkova who was ranked 71 in the world.

Cornet has won six singles and three doubles titles on the WTA Tour, as well as three singles and three doubles titles on the ITF Circuit. On 16 February 2009, she reached her highest WTA singles ranking of world No. 11.

Her best performance at a Grand Slam event came this year (2022) at the Australian Open. She progressed to her first Grand Slam quarterfinal before losing to Danielle Collins in straight sets. Cornet hasn’t reached beyond the fourth round of the three other Grand Slam competitions.

In 2014, Cornet managed to defeat the legendary Serena Williams on three different occasions. The first win came at the Dubai Championships. The second win came at Wimbledon and the last of the three wins came in the second round of Wuhan. However, in the last match, Williams had to retire due to illness.

How has the year 2022 been going for Alize Cornet?

She had a disappointing start to the year as she lost to Naomi Osaka in the first round of the Melbourne Summer Set 1. Australian Open was a decent campaign for the veteran. She lost in the Round of 32 in 3 consecutive tournaments – St. Petersburg Open, Qatar Open, and Lyon Open. She was ousted in the Round of 64 of the Indian Wells Masters. A similar fate awaited her at the Miami Open. However, she managed to reach the semi-final and quarter-final of the women’s doubles event in Indian Wells and Miami respectively.

Charleston Open was better as she reached the Round of 16 but the jinx of the Round of 64 resurfaced once again at the Madrid Open. A quarter-final berth in the doubles competition was the saving grace. The Italian Open followed and Cornet once again failed to go beyond the Round of 64.

The French Open campaign began with wins against Misaki Doi and Jelena Ostapenko. However, in the third round, she had to retire after during her match against Qinwen Zheng.

In the Grass Court Championships Berlin, she lost her first match in the singles competition but progressed to the final of the women’s doubles event.

Her form got better in the Bad Homburg Open where she reached the semi-final before losing to Caroline Garcia in three sets. The Wimbledon followed and Cornet stopped the incredible run of world No. 1 Iga Swiatek in the third round. Cornet could not go beyond the round of 16 though.

She recently took part in the Prague Open but lost in the Round of 16 against Linda Noskova.
