Yes, they do. There was an interview with her after she qualifed for the US Open, she said she visited them for a couple of days during the summer and that she misses Moscow a lot.

Please, please, please let it be a start of something really good for her, and not just her usual a couple of good weeks per year.

Re: Aleksandra Krunic

I finally got to see her play a bit.

I love the way she plays. She's small and light and lightning quick and just keeps running.
One of the quickest female players I've ever seen. Has good power on her serve for her height.

She has obviously begun to overcome a lot of the difficulties with her tennis and she is now beginning to find her best tennis.

I think she can make herself a regular wta player. She's so fast, seriously, and she slides over the court.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Hope she can handle it but she should be relaxed enough. If anybody stays cool in this situation then Alex!
