Re: Irina Khromacheva becoming Belgian?

I think it says that she will turn Belgian in a few years but it's not a priority right now. I guess it's not that easy for Russians to get Belgian nationality. She's lived in Namur for 3 years but will move to Wilrijk soon.

The VTV didn't require her to change nationality, but that means they're only doing training at the VTV facilities - the actual Belgians get financial support too.

He describes her as a very talented player, already quite complete with both an attacking and defending game. He also praises her mental skills and her will to win, and says she is working hard on improving her physical condition (where they are also working with Clijsters' physio, Sam Verslegers)

He claims that she manages to stay cool-headed on important points, but that she is not yet consistent. He doesn't want to compare her to anyone on the women's circuit, but says he sees something of Rafael Nadal in her, both in her mentality and her game style. Both lefties, too.

Aim for this season: 1 junior GS, qualify for a senior GS, and finish top-200.

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Re: Irina Khromacheva becoming Belgian?

I wonder what the Russian Federation thinks of this?
Pervak and dolonc gone and khromacheva apparently considering it. These are good young players.

Good Luck: Belgian & Czech Girls

Re: Irina Khromacheva becoming Belgian?

I guess they think they still have enough other players to give money to

Andrea Petkovic - Sara Errani - Jarka Gajdosova - Alizé Cornet

Re: Irina Khromacheva becoming Belgian?

Tarpischev was not impressed when Pervak left. I'd imagine it'd be similar if this happens.

It is incredibly expensive to play tennis Moscow which is why many go abroad (to of course get better conditions as well).

I don't believe this till it actually happens.

Good Luck: Belgian & Czech Girls

Yeah but first there were rumours she'd take Belgian citizenship. I'm pretty sure Khromacheva won't become Belgian.
