Arantxa Rus (born 13 December 1990, in Delft, South Holland) is a Dutch female tennis player. In 2008 she won the Australian Open for juniors, defeating Jessica Moore from Australia. Because of this win she went from 35th to 2nd place on the junior tennis list, but soon she became new junior No.1 player. Rus was given a wildcard for the 2008 Ordina Open, where she was defeated in the first round by Mariya Koryttseva 4 � 6, 4 � 6.

In September 2008 she qualified for the 2008 Guangzhou International Women's Open in Guangzhou, China. In the first round she beat Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium 6 � 7 (2), 6 � 2, 6 � 4 and then reached the quarterfinal after beating Argentina's Gisela Dulko 6 � 4, 6 � 4. In the quarterfinal she lost to Camille Pin of France 3 � 6, 3 � 6.

Rus' biggest win to date was a second round shocker over #2 seed Kim Clijsters at the 2011 French Open, winning 3-6, 7-5, 6-1, saving two match points in the second set.

She currently is the number one ranked Dutch player on the WTA singles ranking.
