Young Russian tennis player Pavlyuchenkova Anastasia Sergeevna (born 03.07.1991, Samara) was born in a family of athletes. Mom Marina was a swimmer, and dad Sergey was rowing. It is worth noting that the grandmother of the tennis player is a former basketball player. Grandfather was an arbiter in an elite group for this sport in the USSR. Anastasia's elder brother was professionally engaged in tennis for some time, but then began to accompany his sister on trips to tournaments.
Perseverance and work
Parents decided to give the girl tennis. And at age 6 they brought her to a shady court. Since then, Anastasia was not up to dolls and toys. Her day began with the court and ended with it. The persistence and persistence with which she was engaged surprised trainers and parents. And here is the reward for hard work: the first racket of the world among juniors at age 15.
The first training took place under the supervision of dad and mom. What parents knew or knew how to do, everyone tried to pass on to their daughter. Over time, the older brother also began to help Anastasia in training. Alexander himself was engaged in professional tennis and shared with his sister all the intricacies and nuances of the game.
In 2006, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (Russian athlete) became a discovery in tennis. She won 3 Grand Slam junior tournaments alone and 5 in a pair. Constant training, an objective assessment of her game did not allow the young athlete to catch the "star" disease.
Moving to the adult tennis team, she did not get lost among the athletes, as often happens. Successfully playing for the Russian national team. She is part of the 30 strongest world tennis players. At the moment, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is the 25th racket of the world.
Sport is fast growing up
The transition from juniors to big sports is always difficult and painful. Junior tennis is soft and even, while adult tennis is more aggressive. After such a game, deep potholes from blows remain on the field. Beats in tennis are stronger, and the speed is huge.
The constant presence of tennis stars Sharapova, Dementieva, Kuznetsova mobilizes willpower. They make young people strive for high achievements. The process of turning a caterpillar into a butterfly is very fast. Morally it is always difficult.
And if a physically young star was well prepared, then moral adaptation is always difficult. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova tried to cope with this task. Constant work on their mistakes, practicing the blow and various tricks distracted the girl from idle conversations and thoughts.
Since 2007, Patrick Muratogl has been a tennis player’s permanent coach. Then there was a brief collaboration with Gerald Bremont. Since 2013, Anastasia has been trained by Martina Hingis, the famous Swiss tennis player.
Parents try to always be near. To help her in everyday life, to give practical advice, to support morally in competitions. So that the daughter could continue her studies at a tennis school abroad, they sold a car and moved to another apartment.
And it's not even the fees that Anastasia receives. They are enough only for flights, accommodation abroad and training. All this is worth a lot of money. They are well aware that Pavlyuchenkova Anastasia, tennis and big sport are connected together.
Anastasia's older brother is also trying to help her sister. It was he who took upon himself all administrative, domestic, housing issues, the organization of flights, and much more. If the athlete will deal with household issues, she will not have enough strength for training and competition. In a foreign country, a close and dear person is like a breath of clean air. Therefore, a strong and reliable shoulder is simply necessary.
Now Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova lives in France. He also trains at the Tennis Academy. He is fluent in English, along with studying French. He loves to watch comedies, loves Johnny Jepp and Ven Stiller, listens to hip-hop.
Preference in food is given to Japanese cuisine, like pizza. In your free time, do not mind lying on the couch with a book in your hands, especially if it is the "Code of Atlantis." He likes to sit with his good friends in a cafe for a cup of coffee or tea.
Outdoor activities come first. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is fond of figure skating, dancing, and in the winter he enjoys snowboarding. She is not married, height - 176 cm, weight 70 kg.
