Hit the World Stage/Media at 15-years old
In January 2018 she made her Grand Slam debut at the age of just 15 at the Australian Open.
Marta received a wildcard entry into the qualifying tournament. She beat Arina Rodionova, Daniela Seguel and Barbora Krejcikova. That made her the first 15-year old to come through Grand Slam qualifying in 13 years.
The main draw.
On the 15th of January 2018 Marta Kostyuk ranked World No.521 beat No.25 seed Peng Shuai in straight sets 6-2 6-2 in just 57 minutes becoming the youngest player to win a main draw match in Melbourne since Martina Hingis in 1996.
On the 17th of January 2018 Marta Kostyuk beat the Australian wildcard Olivia Rogowska in the second round 6-3 7-5 to reach the third round on her Australian Open debut.
On the 19th of January she was beaten by fellow Ukrainian Elina Svitolina 6-2 6-2.
After the match she took to social media saying “Guess what??? It turns out I can lose at AO after all It was a great run and I’m looking forward to next year already” Followed by a fist pump and red love heart symbol.
Her sense of humor
Straight after her first social media post, she posted again saying
“Thank you @elisvitolina for a tennis lesson and for not charging me for it. It was a privilege to play You at Rod Laver Arena” Included was emoji’s and the #tennislessons#australianopen
