Eva Birnerová (born 14 August 1984) is a retired professional Czech tennis player.
Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over or around a net and into the opponent's court. The object of the game is to maneuver the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return. The player who is unable to return the ball will not gain a point, while the opposite player will.
Birnerová won three doubles titles on the WTA tour, as well as eight singles and 11 doubles titles on the ITF circuit in her career. On 29 January 2007, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 59. On 21 May 2012, she peaked at world number 52 in the doubles rankings.
The Women's Tennis Association (WTA), founded in 1973 by Billie Jean King, is the principal organizing body of women's professional tennis. It governs the WTA Tour which is the worldwide professional tennis tour for women and was founded to create a better future for women's tennis. Its counterpart organisation in the men's professional game is the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). The WTA's corporate headquarters is in St. Petersburg, Florida, with its European headquarters in London and its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Beijing.
The International Tennis Federation (ITF) is the governing body of world tennis, wheelchair tennis, and beach tennis. It was founded in 1913 as the International Lawn Tennis Federation by twelve national associations, and as of 2016, is affiliated with 211 national tennis associations and six regional associations.
Playing for the Czech Republic at the Fed Cup, Birnerová had a win–loss record of 0–2.
The Czech Republic Fed Cup team is the representative national team of the Czech Republic in Fed Cup competition. The Czech Republic team in its current incarnation began competing in 1993. It is seen as the primary successor to the Czechoslovak team, and not Slovakia, even though the Czechoslovak team included both Czech and Slovak players.
Fed Cup is the premier international team competition in women's tennis, launched in 1963 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the International Tennis Federation (ITF). The competition was known as the Federation Cup until 1995. The Fed Cup is the world's largest annual women's international team sports competition in terms of the number of nations that compete. The current Fed Cup Chairperson is Katrina Adams.
Coached by Tim Sommer since October 2005, Birnerová is an all-court player who prefers playing on grass.
In juniors, Birnerová was the 2002 European Champion in 18-and-unders.
In 2006, Birnerová won her first WTA Tour doubles title in Stockholm alongside Jarmila Gajdošová.

The area has been settled since the Stone Age, in the 6th millennium BC, and was founded as a city in 1252 by Swedish statesman Birger Jarl. It is also the capital of Stockholm County.
