Bernarda Pera (/bərˈnɑːrdə ˈpɛrə/ bər-NAR-də PERR;[1] Croatian pronunciation: [běrnaːrda pêra];[2][3] born 3 December 1994) is a Croatian-born American tennis player. Pera has won two singles and one doubles title on the WTA Tour along with nine singles titles and eight doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. She achieved career-high rankings of world No. 59 in singles and world No. 35 in doubles.

Early life

Bernarda was born in a Croatian-Dalmatian Italian family. Besides English, she speaks Croatian as well. When she was 16, her father, who is a U.S. citizen, moved their family to the United States for the benefit of her budding tennis career. They settled in New Jersey, where it wasn’t hard for them to adjust because they already had friends and relatives there. Pera has been in a relationship with Croatian basketball player Kristijan Krajina since 2018.[4]
