She is a baseline player who is mentally very strong on court,

Wickmayer's mother died at an early age. Her father's name is Marc Wickmayer, of Austrian origin. Her name was inspired by the name of former Argentine soccer player Diego Armando Maradona's daughter. Yanina speaks Dutch, English and French. She personally admires Kim Clijsters.

Wickmayer obtained her first real successes: 3 singles ITF titles and 2 ITF doubles (see below).
