Teliana Santos Pereira (born 20 July 1988) is a professional Brazilian tennis player.

Early and personal life

Teliana Pereira was born on 20 July 1988 in Águas Belas, and is coached by her brother, Renato. Pereira's parents are Jose and Maria; she has three brothers and three sisters. She started playing at age 8 because her brothers played. Pereira's favorite tournament is the French Open. Her childhood tennis idol was Gustavo Kuerten. Her favourite surface is clay.

Career

In February 2013, Pereira reached the semifinals of Copa Colsanitas as a qualifier, which boosted her singles ranking to 116. In February 2014, Pereira reached the semifinals of Rio Open. In April 2015, Pereira reached the final of Copa Colsanitas, where she won her first WTA title beating fifth seed Yaroslava Shvedova in straight sets to become the first Brazilian woman to win a WTA singles title since 1988, and jumping 130 places up the WTA rankings to No. 81. In July 2015 she won her second WTA title at the Brasil Tennis Cup in Florianópolis. With the result, Pereira entered the top 50 for the first time. She was just the second Brazilian in the Open Era to win a WTA title in Brazil – Niege Dias achieved the feat once, doing it over in Guarujá in 1987. Pereira performed very poorly throughout 2016 and finally dropped out of top 200 by the end of the season.
