Pervak changed nationalities

Sorry if this has just completely passed me by and everyone else knows about it but I was looking at the WTA rankings and Pervak now has 'KAZ' next to her name and she's altered her first name from 'Ksenia' from 'Xeniya'. When did this happen? There isn't anything in her cheering thread about it.

And why did she change? Was she not getting enough help from her federation?

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Re: Pervak changed nationalities?

Noooo

Why does she have to change her first name as well though? I like Ksenia better. Should I change my sig then?

Re: Pervak changed nationalities?

I understand why she might do it for the money (even though she has enough to live very comfortably and she's developing) and I understand that she wants to play in the olympics next year but why did she change her name?

Re: Pervak changed nationalities?

Ksenia hasn't changed her name at her official Facebook account though nor has she announced her nationality change.

She has done it not for money, but for the Olympics, I believe. She comes from a very wealthy family, besides that she is a top 50 player.
Also IIRC she said that she would change the nationality because she might not get a chance to play at the Olympics.

Tarpishchev's work, I bet. Anyway, she didn't stand of a chance of making the Olympics as a Russian so good for her.

This post is off topic but you need to stop rotating different hot men for your dp and sig. I like casually scrolling through threads on TF, not suddenly stopping to eyefuck these celebrities/models/whoever they are. That's for another time of the day.
