|Katerina Maleeva was the second oldest of the three children of Yulia Berberyan
and Georgi Maleev. The mother, who came from a prominent Armenian
family, which found refuge in Bulgaria after the 1896 Armenian massacres
in the Ottoman Empire, was the best Bulgarian tennis player in the
1960s. After she retired from professional tennis in the 1970s,
Berberyan started on a coaching career. She was the coach of her three
daughters, Katerina, Manuela and Magdalena, each of whom eventually
became WTA top ten players.
Throughout her professional career,
Maleeva has won a total of 11 WTA Tour singles titles and two titles in
doubles. She has been six times in the top ten and has a balance of 369
victories and 210 losses. In 1994 she married her year-long partner,
Georgi Stoimenov. The two have two children.
