I think she moved to France aged 1.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

From her interview on AUS open website:

Q. How long did you live in Russia for?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: We moved when I was eight months.
