just turned 14 over 2 weeks ago (3 July 1991)

http://www.itftennis.com/shared/medialibrary/image/player/IO_7578_player.JPG

from Samara :cool:

she won the G1 earlier this yr in Czech Rep (beating Radwanska) in the final on carpet.
since then its been a little patchy to say the least

but this week, she's doing good again
another G1 in Austria and she's into semis
and plays A Radwanska (Wim jr Champ) again.

good luck Nastya ;) :angel:

time to get some more 90's :baby: onto the scene.

I was just looking at the results of the 2004 TATS Open (Finland), which was won by Nastya, and then I came back to RR and found this thread about her.

How freaky is that? :eek: :unsure:

It must be a good sign ;)

Good luck Nastya :)

More than on the right track. :) Can't wait when she enters her first Challenger or even Wta event. Lots of contenders to get a Kremlin Cup Qual-WC. Shame Safina/Douchevina/Linetskaya/Chakvetadze didn't play Cincinatti and Stanford. A good result may have settled it for Safina to make the KC Main Draw without WC. Let's keep fingers crossed a few top 20 ranked won't be playing the Kremlin Cup. 2 seasons ago a 37th ranking's good enough to make Main Draw. So, still slim chance for Nastya P. to get Qual-WC at KC.

Watched her profile on Juniorstennis. Youngest player in the top 50.
Wow, she plays the U18 tournaments for quite some time. Started at the age of 12 playing them. Yep, she won a G1 on indoor carpet.

As things stand. About Nastya getting a KC-Qual WC. D. Safina/A. Chakvetadze/V. Douchevina are in the Main Draw of the Kremlin Cup. Increasing chance for Nastya to get he KC-Qual WC. A Main Draw WC is too early.

Good perf. Down Under, no reason why she can't def. the first seed. Thinking of her schedule 2006. Best thing if she can get some grass under your belt, yes play a grass challenger even after Wimbly. After RG wouldn't play clay events as long as she plays the Jun.GS Another reason RG is the only GS on clay, happily no more than once a year. And of course focus on esp. East-European Indoor tour. Or maybe if she can afford financially a few Asian Challengers.
Good luck Nastya think she'll make the top 500 this year.

Today Nastya d. (2) Raluca Olaru 6-1 7-5 to move into the QF of the Optus Nottinghill International, which is another G1

Some news on NastyaAlexander Pavlyuchenkov gave up playing on the ATP tour to coach his sister. "He had problems with his sponsor so we asked him if he doesn't play tennis he can coach me," said Anastasia. "It's better for me because he knows everything about tennis and he's a good player too, plus he's my brother, so it's very good."

With all this tennis, one asks if the fifteen year old from Russia might not be feeling a little tired by now. "People tell me that if you play all three tournaments you will be tired, but for me it's like training," she explained. "It's better for me to play more and more."Alexander became her coach two months ago

BTW, she is 14, rather than 15 like it says in the article :p

Sorana's reward is a final showdown with her US Open doubles partner, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (16) of Russia, who stopped the run of American, Chelsey Gullickson, 6-4; 7-5, on the adjoining court.

"I really wanted that I get to the final here," said Anastasia, who also won last week in Traralgon. "I thought that I would be tired and wouldn't play so well but I did and I am so happy."

The Russian usually relies on her serve to pick up some free points, but today the wind made that mission impossible. "I couldn't serve," she explained. "My serve had to be spin too much, so it was not too strong. It was actually quite soft."

Her opponent took charge in the second set and quickly brought it to 4-1 lead before the tide reversed back. "I thought it was going on to be a third set for sure," said Anastasia. "Anyway, I just try to hit every ball in the court, so it's a good result for me."

FINAL
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova d. Sorana Cirstea (7) 6-3 6-4 :worship:
well done Nastya :banana: :woohoo: :D :)



In the girl's final, last week's Loy Yang Power Traralgon International winner Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (16) came out confidently to post a 6-3; 6-4 victory over Sorana Cirstea (7) of Romania. "I was calm and I really didn't care if I win because I got to the final for the second week," said the 14 year old Russian. "I was glad for that, so I wasn't nervous and it helped me a little bit."
Anastasia wrapped up the first set and went up to 5-1 before the 7th seed put up some resistance and fought her way back to 5-4. However, despite erasing two match points, Sorana lost on the third attempt, when facing a short ball she came in for the putaway, only to whip it beyond the baseline.

"I couldn't make my points, like making them and winning them and today I would have no chance without them," said Sorana, who played a long singles match followed by a three hour doubles match in the hot sultry heat yesterday afternoon. "I played really good up until the final and I was satisfied with my game, but it's really disappointing that the most important match of the tournament you can't play your best. I have lost three finals in a row, Eddie Herr, Mexico and now here, so it's really strange and I think it's me and not my opponent."

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS)


Pavlyuchenkova Powers Into SemisOn a day when thundery showers pushed play onto Melbourne Park’s indoor courts, Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova stormed into her first junior grand slam semifinal on Friday thanks to a 64 63 win over third seed Dominika Cibulkova of Slovak Republic at the Australian Open.

The tournament marks only Pavlyuchenkova’s third grand slam tournament and her run to the last four marks a huge step up in achievement for the 15-year-old Russian, who bombed out of last year’s junior Roland Garros and junior US Open in the opening round. She admitted that, while she was thrown at first when organizers were forced to move play out of the rain and onto the indoor courts, the move worked to her advantage.

“We had a long time to wait for the matches because of the rain but she was in the same situation – she was waiting too. At first I was a bit nervous because it’s a different atmosphere and a little bit of a different surface and it took me some time to feel the ball but then when I became calm again it was okay. I concentrated on every point and didn’t care what was around me. Inside there is no wind and every ball is quicker. Maybe it helps me because she is a bit smaller than me and I play faster and stronger, which is better indoors. I played well today.”

Pavlyuchenkova will take on second seed Raluca-Ioana Olaru of Romania in the semifinals after the Romanian beat Sharon Fichman of Canada 64 76. “It’s a wonder to be in the semifinals because I never got this far before,” said Pavlyuchenkova. “I won two tournaments before this Australian Open and I trained just to prepare for here but I told myself before the tournament that I just should play well and find my best game. I didn’t think about results so much and maybe that’s why I’ve played so well and why I believe in myself. I’m really happy.”

another report from Jr tennis.com

Anastasia Pavluchenkova, moved inside to the same court as yesterday, and once again paid no attention to the audible din from the catering refrigerators and generators situated outside her court. She used her big serve and powerful groundstrokes to upset the 2nd seeded, Raluca Olaru from Romania, 6-4; 6-3 for the second time in two weeks bringing her winning streak to 17 singles matches.
"I just tried to concentrate and I don't pay attention to that kind of condition," said Anastasia, more concerned about the close proximity of the adjacent semifinal than the noisy drone. "It was a little bit difficult playing so close to the other girls. I turned around because I was interested in their game a little bit and I wanted to know the score, but I was mainly looking for my coach who was sitting on the other court."

The 14 year old Russian admitted it was an advantage to be back on the same court she played on yesterday. "She (Raluca) played outside and outside was a little bit windy and was dark under lights, so something different for her," Anastasia said. "I played a little bit stronger than her indoors, no wind and it's better for me. Everything was better for me so I am lucky."

Raluca had a very difficult time trying to make the adjustment to being indoors. "I think the indoor courts were a little disadvantage for me because it was so noisy. I couldn't concentrate really good," she said. "I was too nervous and the space between the courts small too, but mostly the noise was disturbing."

Last week Anastasia played Raluca in Nottinghill and won 6-1; 7-5. Was it an advantage because she beat her last week? "No I don't think so," she replied. "I think it's better for her because she lost to me and now she concentrates more and now she knows my mistakes."

Raluca felt she could have won the match. "I was trying to hit the ball and something was stopping me. I played her last week so I knew what I had to do, but I made too many unforced errors and I was nervous. I lead the first set all the time I was 3-2 and 4-3 up and afterwards I was making mistakes."

Fantastic! Is sure of getting WC's, hopefully she gets a KC-WC. It's only normal she gets one, if you want women's tennis stronger in depth. You'd rather give Nastya a WC-Qual than a last minute WC to a high ranked player as what happened at last years KC. Give less special treatment to players esp. on Indoor Carpet and women's tennis is becoming stronger in depth.

Here is a report by Bodo -

On the girls side, the big story has been Russian baseline monster Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. She’s been in Oz for three tournaments and has yet to lose a match – and she’s just the No. 8 seed. She won her semi just a few minutes ago. “There’s nothing waif-ish about this Russian,” Colette said. “She’s a big, strong girl.”

Five U.S. girls fought their way through the qualifying rounds for the junior event, playing two matches per day in the brutal heat. The most successful of the lot has been Chelsey Gullickson (daughter of baseball's Bill), who lost in the 16s but hits a nice ball and probably has a promising future.

One other American went fairly deep (two matches to qualify, and third round of main draw) into the event – Kimberly Couts. Colette told me that Kimberly, who’s 16, traveled to Oz without parents, without a coach, and without benefit of USTA resources, human or financial. “I went out to see her match with Pavlyuchenkova and there was nobody, but nobody, out there for her.”

After winning, Pavlyuchenkova expressed surprise that Couts had had to qualify. “Don’ t know why she had to qualify, she’s really good!”

Her profile (http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/players/player.asp?player=100056619) says that she weighs 66kg, so I'm assuming that she is fairly tall for her age.

Fourteen-year-old Pavlyuchenkova also had to pull off something of a comeback in her 16 62 63 win over top seed Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark. The Russian was a set and 0-2 down before clawing her way back into the match to extend her unbeaten run in Australia to 18 matches – she also won both warm-up events at Traralgon and Nottinghill.

“I'm so happy and I really wonder about it. I just played well. I don't know what to say because I thought that I couldn't win that tournament, that it was too difficult for me. I felt tired in the match,” said Pavlyuchenkova, who also won the Australian Open doubles title with Canada's Sharon Fichman. “But I did it, and I am so happy. I thought that it's my last match today, so I have to do what I can. So I did whatever I can, and I tried to play well every point. I tried to keep fighting on.”

Pavlyuchenkova comes from Samara in Russia but trains in Ostrava in the Czech Republic with her father Sergey. She has plenty of fans and friends in Melbourne and planned to celebrate her victory with them by watching Roger Federer take on Marcos Baghdatis in the men’s final before spending Monday taking a well-earned rest on one of the nearby beaches on Melbourne’s Port Philip Bay.

“This is the best stuff. It's the best result. I am pretty happy (but) I even don't feel that I won a Grand Slam because I don't understand what I did,” she said. “It's amazing.”

Both players were presented with their trophies on court and, in what’s become a tradition for all finalists at the Australian Open, received a cuddly kangaroo as a memento of their success in Melbourne.

Pavlyuchenkova's Girls' Title

Sunday, 29 January, 2006
by Luke Buttigieg



Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has come from behind to beat No.1 seed Caroline Wozniacki in the Australian Open 2006 Junior Girls' Singles final, a day after she also took out the Junior Girls' Doubles crown with Canadian Sharon Fichman.

A day after having to play her singles semi-final - in which she defeated Romanian No.2 seed Raluca-Ioana Olaru in straight-sets - as well as her doubles semi-final and final, No.8 seed Pavlyuchenkova started slowly against Dane Wozniacki.

But having tasted defeat in the semi-finals of the doubles with her Georgian partner Anna Tatishvili, Wozniacki was unable to maintain her momentum after the opening set, with Pavlyuchenkova eventually getting home 1-6 6-2 6-3.

With three breaks of serve Wozniacki hit eight winners on the way to taking the opening set in 28 minutes, while Pavlyuchenkova committed 13 unforced errors and won her only game by breaking her opponent's serve.

The second set followed a similar pattern but with Pavlyuchenkova taking control with 16 winners and three breaks of serve against 12 unforced errors, one break and four winners to Wozniacki.

Pavlyuchenkova continued to hit winners in the final set, cracking another 16 to four, and broke early in the final set before doing so again later after Wozniacki had hit back, sealing an impressive double for the tournament.

Sunday 29th January 2006
Anastasia and Alexandre reign supreme in Melbourne.
by Annie Paton
Anastasia Pavluchenkova completes the hat trick of ITF Australian Summer tournaments, winning her 18th straight singles match over number one seed, Caroline Wozniacki while unseeded Alexandre Sidorenko of France who entered the tournament with a special exemption after reaching the doubles final last week, stopped the Australian, Nick Lindahl to post the first win of his career. The fact that this is the Australian Open and the first Grand Slam of the year is all the more impressive.
Anastasia is equally in awe at winning the singles and also the doubles championships. "I am pretty happy, I know," she said, all smiles. "I even don't feel that I won a Grand Slam because I don't understand what I did. It's amazing."
After all the rain delays of the past two days, it was a welcome sight to see bright sunshine for the singles finals. However fans failed to show up in any large numbers for the two biggest junior matches of the week, so apart from a tiny group of avid supporters in the girl's match, the two arenas were eerily empty.
The rising heat also took it's toll on Anastasia, who was not wearing a hat when she started to feel dizzy, down a set and a break in the first game of the second set. "I was shaking," she said, when she called for the trainer. "He just put ice on my neck and then I got the ice jacket and that's it. I just took a little bit rest and then I tried to concentrate and I will not so much tired and I will try to play well."
For Caroline, it was the turning point of the match. After leading a set and 2-0, she lost six straight games for the second set. "It just helped her today," said Caroline, referring to the medical time out. "I think she had done that all tournament and I knew it would come if I won the first set. I was just stupid that I wasn't really ready we came out on the court again and I got more defensive."
The momentum continued with the 14 year old Russian, who pulled out the match, 1-6; 6-2; 6-3, for her 18th consecutive single win. Combined with the doubles she won last night with Sharon Fichman, it's a remarkable feat. "I am so tired, but I am so happy that I can't feel tired," Anastasia said. "I am so happy so I am okay."
Meantime the number one seed marveled at her opponent's achievement. "I don't know how she does that; three tournaments in a row," Caroline said. "When I am playing one tournament I am so tired I can't play the second one, so it's impressive and I don't know how she does it."
Finally Caroline said, philosophically: "I just have to enjoy that I was in the finals here. I will just try to keep going and hopefully I will win a Grand Slam someday."

http://www.australianopen.com/images/headers/04410g3.gifQ. How does it feel to win three tournaments in a row, especially the big one, Australian Open?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: I don't know. I don't know what to say, I'm so happy. And I really wonder about that. I just played well.

I don't know what to say because I thought that I can't win that tournament, but it was too difficult for me. I felt tired on the match. So I did it, and I am so happy. I don't know.

Q. Do you know why you got off to such a slow start at the beginning?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Uhm, I was sick a little bit in the first set, and I was dizzy, so I was shaking. And then I will concentrate on every point. And I tried to play because I can't (indiscernible) this match so easy because it's the final and I have to play. I try to play every point.

And then I called the doctor and he helped me a little bit. So I don't know.

Q. This has nothing to do with the bandage that's on your thigh?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah.

Q. What is that?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, I couldn't move on the court so well because it little bit was sore, my legs. I don't know, I get tape on the leg and it's little bit help me.

But anyway, it's sore and I could not move on the court so well.

Q. Is that an injury that you got recently?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, it's injury. I got it from the first tournament in Traralgon. So it has been pain for like three weeks.

Q. Did you call for the trainer twice or just the once?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: No, just once. And because I was sick, and I didn't know what to do because I was dizzy, so I was shaking. I don't know. Because I was so tired, he help me a little bit.

Q. How did he help you?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Uhm, just he putted ice on my neck, and then I got the ice jacket and that's it. I don't know, maybe that's why. I just ‑‑ I just took a little bit rest, and then I tried to concentrate and I will not so much tired and I will try to play well.



Q. It was the heat that bothered you?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, it was heat. Maybe because I played not in the hat, like it not covered my head. That's why maybe. It's bad, too.

Q. That was a mistake, not wearing a hat?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, maybe, probably.

But I could not play in the hat because it's too long and I can't see the ball when I am serving. So that's why I wearing that.

Q. Do you practice in Russia?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, I'm still practicing in Russia. But I started to practice in CzechRepublic in winter because it's too cold into Russia. And I was in CzechRepublic, and I like there. So it's good place. Found good club. I like there.

Q. You play part of the year in Russia, one part in CzechRepublic?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, probably.

Q. Where do you practice in Russia and CzechRepublic?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: In Russia I practice in Samara. I was born there. And in Czech I practice in Ostrava. It's not so big town, but it's okay.

Q. Between the second and third set, she asked for a heat break, or apparently she was the one that needed the break or asked for it. You didn't leave the court. Why was that?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, because I don't think so that it's good for me if I won the set and I have to take a break because, uhm, I can't like relax a little bit. When I take a break, and I get off from the court, it's not so good for me because I know myself. If I do that, I will relax. So that's why I tried to keep energy and keep concentrate, and that's why I stayed in court.

Q. How nervous were you today, through the match, before the match?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Uhm, actually I was not nervous. I don't know. Because I get to the final, it's good for me. It's the best result. So I just played well and I wasn't nervous so much.

Because she is No. 1 seeded on this tournament and she's a good player. I just tried to play with her well. I tried to show my best game. But first set, I could not show that, but then I did it, so I am happy.

Q. Throughout this week you were saying you were tired and yet look how much tennis you've played. Yesterday, three matches, and you won the doubles.

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, I know. I won the doubles. And thanks for my partner, she was good, too. And, yes, I am tired.

But I thought that it's my last match today, so I have to do what I can. So I did whatever I can, and it was my last match, so I tried to play well every point. I tried to fighting on this match.

Q. It hasn't sunk in yet that you won here, or it has? You've won the championship in both singles and doubles.

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, for some reason I don't know what to say. I didn't know who can do that. But I don't know. But before quarterfinal, we wanted to defaulted because my partner was sick, and then we started play and we did it. So I don't know.

I just ‑‑ you know, sometimes you cannot play doubles because you have singles tomorrow, for example, and you don't wanted to play a doubles so well because you want to keep energy for your singles. But I play every match, so I don't care about that.

Q. How are you feeling now?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: I am tired, but I am so happy that I can't feel so tired. So I'm not worrying about that. I am so happy, so I am okay.

Q. Have you had lots of phone calls and lots of people wanting to talk to you and celebrate?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, we will celebrate. I have a friends here. So we are going to celebrate with them. I want to have rest. I really enjoying here, and I am gonna do everything, so I like here.

Q. Before you got on the plane, did you have an idea of how many matches you wanted from this trip? Did you have a goal in your head of what you thought would be enough, would be satisfying?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Oh, I had so many matches. I know that it's terrible. It's I don't know. Like it's too difficult to play every match because you can win the best player, you can lost to someone, I don't know.

And you need to have good things about that. So it's not just play. You have to, uhm ‑‑ I don't know. You have to concentrate in every match. So I don't know.

Q. It's an amazing run that you've had here.

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, yeah.

Q. Must be more than you even dreamt about?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: I tried to plan well and I tried to don't show to my opponent that I am nervous and I am little bit upset. Every time I try to be, I don't know, in good situation. Every time I'm saying, "Come on," and everything because I don't want to show my opponent that I am upset because it's helps her.

So maybe that's why it helps me, too.

Q. Where are you and your friends going to go to celebrate?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: We are going to go to have a dinner in their house, home, to watch Federer today, this great match. And maybe tomorrow probably I am going to the beach.

And I don't know. I will have a rest.

Q. Who are you going for, Federer or Baghdatis?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: I don't know. I really don't know, because they are both good players. And Federer, it's Federer, you know, and he is the best player. But Baghdatis good, too. I saw his matches and it's amazing. I like his playing.

Q. Who are your favorites generally?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: From men? Of men?

Q. Both.

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: I like Safin so much because he is funny and he is from Russia. I like his playing, like his moving on the court, like his feeling on the court. So everything. And I don't know. I like him.

And of women, I really don't know. I like Clijsters because she is good person, she is the best player. So I don't know. Everyone is good players in professional top 10. Everyone is same, like, I don't know. They are great players.

Q. What are your goals?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Uhm, I don't know. I try to play well, and then we will see.

Q. This is a good step for you, isn't it?

ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Yeah, no, it's the best stuff. It's the best result. I don't know. I pretty happy, I know. I even don't feel that I won Grand Slam because I don't understand what I did, so (smiling). I don't know. It's amazing.

Interview (in Russian) with Nastya, Her father Sergey, Andrey Youzhny (general coach of younges):

Анастасия ПАВЛЮЧЕНКОВА: "ЛЮБЛЮ СМОТРЕТЬ КОМЕДИИ И ПОБЕЖДАТЬ"

Вчера 14-летняя россиянка Анастасия Павлюченкова выиграла юниорский турнир среди теннисисток до 18 лет.

ТАКОГО ЕЩЕ НЕ БЫЛО!

До сих пор такое не удавалось никому из наших теннисисток не только в юниорском, но и в женском одиночном разрядах. Анастасия Павлюченкова, которая, занимая в мировом юниорском рейтинге 13-е место, вчера за 1 час 59 минут одолела четвертую ракетку мира среди юниорок 15-летнюю датчанку Каролин Возняцки, стала первой!

Павлюченкову, которая в субботу выиграла юниорский Australian Open и в парном разряде, я вчера разыскивал по телефону полдня.

- Рад за Анастасию. Надеюсь, эта девушка, отличающаяся высоким ростом, продолжит прогрессировать и спустя какое-то время мы увидим ее в нашей главной женской команде, - сказал мне в воскресенье утром президент Федерации тенниса России Шамиль Тарпищев и посоветовал связаться с главным тренером национальной сборной по резерву Андреем Южным, который, будучи в Мельбурне, стал очевидцем решающего матча.

- Настя - не по годам умная девушка, которая постоянно думает на корте. А еще ее отличает отменный настрой. Ведь перед началом Открытого чемпионата Австралии она победила на двух турнирах 1-й категории ITF, и теперь на ее счету в общей сложности 18 выигранных матчей подряд! В финале Павлюченковой пришлось нелегко. Возняцки победила в первом сете и повела во втором - 2:0, однако Анастасия сумела переломить ход борьбы, - сказал Южный.

- Когда, по вашему мнению, мы сможем увидеть Павлюченкову на турнирах WTA Tour?

- Женская теннисная ассоциация ограничивает количество своих соревнований для 14-летних теннисисток, но я считаю, что Настя уже сейчас может с успехом соперничать со многими взрослыми. Например, в прошлом году на первом своем 25-тысячнике она обыграла в первом круге квалификации хорватку Саню Анчич - сестру Марио Анчича, которая в рейтинге WTA Tour сейчас занимает 306-е место.

НА КОРТ ПРИЕЗЖАЛА ЕЩЕ В КОЛЯСКЕ

Южный к тому времени уже был в мельбурнском аэропорту и не мог помочь мне связаться с Анастасией. Тогда я решил позвонить Сергею Павлюченкову - отцу и тренеру новоиспеченной чемпионки, который узнал об успехе дочери у себя дома в Самаре.

- Давно вы тренируете Анастасию?

- С самого начала. Но сейчас в Австралию она поехала с мамой и братом, который является и ее спарринг-партнером.

- Ваш 20-летний сын Александр тоже в свое время подавал надежды...

- Да, но в конце прошлого года он стал помогать Анастасии.

- Когда Настя начала заниматься теннисом?

- Точно сейчас уже и не скажу. Помню, мы привозили ее на корты в коляске, когда начали заниматься с Сашей. Возможно, она взяла в руки теннисную ракетку раньше, чем начала ходить. Серьезно же работать с дочерью мы стали примерно два года назад.

- Насколько я понял, вы с супругой - люди спортивные?

- Конечно. Я в свое время серьезно занимался греблей на байдарках и каноэ, дорос до звания мастер спорта. Окончил на Западной Украине факультет физического воспитания Государственного педагогического университета. Марина - тоже мастер спорта, но по плаванию.

- Каковы главные сильные стороны юниорки Павлюченковой?

- Характер. С этой точки зрения они с братом антиподы. Честно говоря, я всегда считал, что Саша как теннисист более талантлив, однако Насте по результатам уже удалось его превзойти.

- Александр всегда выделялся ростом среди сверстников. Похоже, Анастасия не отстает в этом плане от брата?

- Да, уже сейчас вытянулась на 177 см. Впрочем, у нас в роду все высокие. У меня - 190 см, у жены - 176. Оба моих деда были под два метра.

- Юные высокие теннисистки нередко испытывают проблемы с физической подготовкой, поскольку мышцы отстают в развитии от костей.

- Настя занимается по специальной программе, разработанной с учетом ее данных. Конечно, даже в таком возрасте трудно избежать травм, но, надеюсь, у нас все будет нормально. Кстати, я несколько раз спрашивал дочь, не хочет ли она завязать с теннисом. Нет, отвечает, буду играть.

- Наверное, учитывая ее рост, Анастасия предпочитает быстрые корты?

- Пожалуй, чуть лучше у нее действительно получается в зале. Хотя вообще-то Насте все равно - может и на грунте здорово сыграть, и на харде.

- Серия успешных выступлений Анастасии в Австралии стала для вас сюрпризом?

- Я бы не сказал. Мы же тренируемся! Кстати, у дочери это уже третий юниорский турнир "Большого шлема". На Roland Garros в прошлом году она прошла квалификацию, а затем уступила американке Алекс Глатч, которая уже добивалась успехов и на взрослых турнирах. На US Open в основную сетку попала уже напрямую, но тоже проиграла в первом круге. Теперь же и опыта добавилось, и брат помог.

- Где тренируется дочь?

- Зимой - в одном из клубов в чешской Остраве, летом - на Украине. Кстати, я хорошо знаком с Александром Долгополовым, который в свое время тренировал Андрея Медведева. Надеюсь, что и в России теперь на нас обратят внимание, создадут подходящие условия для работы.

- А спонсоры уже проявляют интерес к Насте?

- Крупные менеджментские фирмы - пока нет. Сейчас нас поддерживает самарская компания БВТ, которой мы очень благодарны.

- В скольких взрослых турнирах Анастасия примет участие в этом году?

- По возрасту ей можно сыграть максимум в семи турнирах, в том числе не более чем в четырех с призовым фондом свыше 10 000 долларов. Пока она приняла участие в двух соревнованиях ITF, но лимит мы, скорее всего, используем полностью. Впрочем, основной упор в этом году будет сделан на юниорские турниры для игроков до 16 и 18 лет.

УЖЕ ПЕРВАЯ В МИРЕ?

Пожелав успехов счастливому отцу новоиспеченной чемпионки, я попросил у него телефон мельбурнского отеля, где в неполном составе остановилась семья Павлюченковых. Однако сначала их номер не отвечал, а затем то Александр, то Марина просили перезвонить попозже. Только около половины второго ночи по восточно-австралийскому времени трубку взяла сама Анастасия.

- Примите поздравления от "СЭ"! Признайтесь - хорошо отметили свою победу?

- Да. Меня пригласила к себе в гости подруга, которая живет в Мельбурне, и мы с ней за ужином смотрели мужской финал.

- И за кого болели - за Федерера или Багдатиса?

- Честно говоря, ни за кого. Просто было интересно понаблюдать за таким матчем. Как и ожидалось, Федерер подтвердил свой класс.

- Вы знаете, что никому из россиянок не удавалось выигрывать Australian Open в одиночном разряде?

- Нет, даже не думала об этом!

- Отправляясь в Австралию, рассчитывали выиграть сразу три турнира?

- Конечно, нет. К тому же к концу Australian Open я здорово подустала - и физически, и психологически. Но рада, что справилась с трудностями. Ведь побеждать очень люблю.

- Самым трудным матчем, наверное, был финал?

- Да. Мы с соперницей боролись за каждый мяч. Пришлось непросто, но я старалась не думать, что это финал, и все-таки сумела победить.

- Не поделитесь секретом - как закаляете характер?

- Да вроде бы ничего особенного не делаю. Он у меня такой от природы!

- Сложно бороться с соперницами, которые старше вас?

- Наоборот, легко. Ведь терять-то мне нечего!

- А сколько ваших сверстниц попало в основную сетку Australian Open?

- Две. Американка, которую я сама обыграла в первом круге, и австралийка.

- Кто из взрослых теннисисток вам особенно нравится?

- С уважением отношусь ко всем россиянкам, особенно симпатизирую Анастасии Мыскиной. Из иностранок мой любимый игрок - Ким Клийстерс.

- С Мыскиной вы знакомы?

- Близко - нет. Просто в прошлом году мне, как и другим стипендиантам фонда Бориса Николаевича Ельцина, вручали поощрительные гранты, и Анастасия присутствовала на той церемонии.

- Хотели бы когда-нибудь сыграть в сборной России вместе с той же Мыскиной, другими нашими лучшими теннисистками?

- Конечно. Но до этого мне еще далеко. Надо много работать.

- Ставите перед собой задачу возглавить мировую юниорскую классификацию?

- Не исключено, что я уже добилась этой цели. Нужно будет посмотреть новый рейтинг, который выйдет на днях.

- А какая у вас глобальная цель в теннисе?

- Такая же, как и у всех, - завоевать титул первой ракетки мира.

- Чем занимаетесь в свободное от тенниса время?

- Люблю кино, прежде всего веселые комедии, музыку, особенно новинки, и танцевать.

- Судя по вашему голосу, вы по-настоящему жизнерадостный человек. На корте оптимизм помогает?

- Конечно. Кроме того, иногда от тенниса бывает полезно отвлечься.

- А как насчет учебы?

- До 6-го класса я ходила в школу так же, как и все. А затем тренировки и разъезды начали отнимать слишком много времени, поэтому с тех пор получаю образование экстерном. Отметки на экзаменах получаю хорошие - пятерки и четверки. Любимые предметы - русский язык и литература.

And I can say you only one: She is playing tennis, like a music!!! :yippee: :music:

Thanks for the report :)

What can you tell us about the way Nastya plays?
- Does she run down a lot of balls?
- Does she have good footwork?
- Does she look confident at the net?

Yes she was running down a lot of balls. Her footwork looks to be pretty sound.
From the way she played in the final, she was pretty much a power baseliner, however when she did come to the net she looked reasonably comfortable and in control.
Watched he Doubles SF the day before and she was the dominant player on her team - plenty of talent.

lol, after their doubles win they were just standing there standing like that, so i asked if i could take a photo of them, and they were more than happy to pose.

I didn't really get much of a chance to talk to her at all - after the singles final she was hounded by fans trying to score a free towel (i managed to get her towel from the doubles SF!).

Anyone know when/where Nastya will be playing next?

I hope I will get also a chance in Paris like you got!
No!!! :scratch: I don`t know where is her next tournament! :scratch:
I think we will wait for the announce of Boily!
I know only that Nastya will play around Roland Garros!
And I know also very, very well that I will not miss one match of her if there is not a match in same time of Patty or Lena!
:bounce: I hope I can see many, many matches of her in Paris till the last day! :bounce:

Is this the only event Nastya has been in since the Aus Open?
Any idea of what her upcomming schedule is?
