Andrea Petkovic was born in Tuzla, SR Bosnia and Herzegovina, SFR Yugoslavia. but at the age of six months, the family relocated to Germany. Petkovic first took to the tennis courts when she was six; her father Zoran Petkovic, former Yugoslav tennis player and member of the Yugoslavia Davis Cup team, was a coach at a club in Darmstadt at the time. He introduced her to the sport and later became her coach. She was able to finish high school before competing in tennis full-time because Zoran never influenced her into joining the professional circuit.
