She was introduced to tennis by her parents at age 4. She plays right-handed and turned pro in 2000.

Her career-high rankings in singles and doubles are World No. 29 and World No. 9, respectively.

She pulled off the biggest singles win of her career so far at the 2009 Rogers Cup held in Toronto, Canada, by beating Venus Williams, the third seed at that event, in three sets. She has also defeated Ana Ivanović twice in professional matches, as well as in the 2004 Wimbledon Championships girls final; and Elena Dementieva at the 2009 Toray Pan Pacific Open.

Bondarenko is coached by her father, Volodymyr and mother, Natalia.
