Maia Lumsden (born 10 January 1998) is a British professional tennis player from Bearsden,[2] Scotland.

Early and personal life[edit | edit source]

Raised in Bearsden, near Glasgow from a family of five, her mother Gillian and father David[3] brother Ewen and and sister Eve, 2 and 4 years younger respectively.[4] Both siblings have played competitive tennis as juniors with Ewen progressing to the senior level.[5][6] Educated at Beaconhurst School, Bridge of Allan[7] later studying at nearby University of Stirling after returning to Scotland in 2016.[8]

Junior career[edit | edit source]

Recognised as young as 10 years old as the best in Britain in her age group[2] and training at the national academy, University of Stirling,[9] under coach Toby Smith with mentoring by Judy Murray who said at the time that Maia may need to train abroad to realise her potential.[10]

By 2012 she was the No.1 under-14 player in the Tennis Europe rankings[9] and under-14 champion at the world's most prestigious junior tournament Junior Orange Bowl beating Gabriella Taylor 6-3 7-5, in an all-British final,[11] both of whom had been semi-finalists in that year's European equivalent the Petits As. The following year the two players teamed up to become under-16 British National Junior Champions in the Doubles whilst Maia was also the under-16 Singles Champion.[12]

Gabi Taylor, Katie Swan, Freya Christie and Lumsden were members of the 2014 GB team, coached by Judy Murray, that triumphed in the Maureen Connolly Challenge Trophy, an annual Under-18s competition against the USA.[13]

She has won an ITF under-18 in Malta and the Super Open Auray, a competition that includes past winners such as Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin, and reached the third round in the girls’ tournament at Wimbledon. She has also trained in Amsterdam and at the IMG Academy in Florida.[14]

Lumsden was a member of Great Britain’s University Tennis Team that won an historic gold medal at the world’s biggest annual university tennis team event, Master’U BNP Paribas Tournament in 2017,[15] and silver medal in 2018.[16]

Senior career[edit | edit source]

As a 14 year old she won her first matches at Challenger level beating England's Pippa Horn and Oman's Fatma Al Nabhani, the second seed and world No.463, to qualify for the AEGON Pro Series event at Scotstoun.[17]

2017[edit | edit source]

Lumsden's first full year as a professional saw two individual title wins in Sunderland and the Wirral[3] and six ITF Futures doubles finals, three of them as winner.

2018[edit | edit source]

Entering her home competition in Scotstoun as a wild card, Lumsden went down in three sets 2-6, 6-1, 6-3 to her Spanish opponent Paula Badosa Gibert in the final of the now $25,000 GB Pro Series or Scottish Championships.[18] In November, Lumsden claimed her first 25k title, beating former top 100 player Valeria Savinykh 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 in the final.[19]

In February, Lumsden lost at the quarter-final stage in the W60 Shrewsbury tournament to top seed Yanina Wickmayer.[20]
