The twins are a super-talented pair, and I think that they could go far in singles and doubles. That said, there is one thing about them that worries me. Both of them are very slender, and I've got some doubts about if they can survive on Tour because of that. There are a few thin players on the main tour who have done just fine despite their size, but Lyuda and Nadiya seem to be thinner than any of the ones that I can think of. Tennis is a very physical game these days, and players have got to be pretty tough in order to be successful. Players that aren't tough enough can have problems avoiding injuries, and we all know what ongoing injury woes can do to a promising career. I'm hoping that this is not what is in store for the girls, but Lyuda's start to the year has got me quite concerned. So far, she's only started 3 tournaments playing singles, and she has had to retire at some point on all 3 occasions.
Let me just be clear about something here. My comments about how the twins are built should not be taken as some sort of criticism. As far back as their early junior days, the twins have always been thin, and it's pretty obvious that they are naturally prediposed to be thin. Genetics have steered them towards a certain build. That said, genes won't prevent them from gaining weight if they ever try to do that in the future. Assuming that I'm right, and bulking up would indeed help them to stay healthy. I just hope that they can figure it all out before it hurts them too badly.
Anyway, ending on a more positive note, I see that they've now got their own website.
Lost final but still good effort to get there. Twins both in 25k event in KAZ next week. Nadiya draw looks good but Lyudmila would play top seed in second round. Gl to both!! It would be really nice to see Nadiya put together another strong event here
