Alisa is very impressive! Maybe she could be another Russian junior world champion a couple years down the road.

I was playing some tournament in Israel a couple years ago and Alisa (really small at that time) was training on a court next to us with her mom. Well, she's really strict. She made her do press-ups and really shouted at her for every shot she did wrong. We were pretty shocked. She won that tournament by the way in the U-14 I think.

I hope she can please her mother :) I don't like parents who really shout and scream at their kids..... not if they haven't done anything wrong really.
