The younger sister of Wayne Black and Byron Black, Cara Black competes mostly in doubles, mixed and regular.
She has also engaged in long-term partnerships with Elena Likhovtseva, Rennae Stubbs, Liezel Huber, Anastassia Rodionova, and most recently Shahar Pe’er. She has won five Grand Slam women’s doubles titles in her career, as well as reaching the 2000 US Open doubles final with Elena Likhovtseva. She has also won three Grand Slam mixed doubles titles, two of them partnering with her brother Wayne: the 2002 French Open and the 2004 Wimbledon Championships (they reached the final of the 2004 French Open and the semifinals of the 2003 French Open and 2003 US Open); and recently the 2008 U.S. Open with Leander Paes of India. Black continued her successful partnership with Paes in 2010 as the pair won the Mixed Doubles title at Wimbledon and reached the quarter finals in the US Open.
During some tournaments when she didn’t compete, Cara Black started getting into commentary and match analysis with television broadcasters around the world. Post Wimbledon 2011, Cara Black has not competed in a tournament and has been seen more in the background work. Whether she’s deciding to retire, we are not sure, but it’s for sure that she has left a legacy that matches any sport personality in our country.
