I checked out her profile on the Junior ITF website and it says her coach is Emilio Sanchez??? Is this true? Is this the same "Emilio Sanchez" the sister of Arantxa? Does anyone see any characteristics of of either of their games in Svetlana? Surprising indeed but why can't Arantxa be #1 again? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

yep its the same Emilio, Sveta is now based in Barcelona, has been there for around 18 months or so.
Sveta's game is nowhere like ASV's, she plays big power groundies on her forehand, rips it bigtime. BH is more steady but she loves the clay thats why she went to Barcelona.

They are close friends with Arantxa despite the difference of age. "She is like an elder sister to me", - said Sveta.
