According to <http://www.tennisrulz.com/players/zv.../biography.htm>, "Vera does not have a permanent tennis club, but when in Moscow she likes to train in `Spartak' club."

This may of course be out of date, seeing as this biography appears to have been written in 2003.

Bepa and Elena D train at ЦСКА, while Nastya trains at a newer club in Moscow, the name of which currently escapes me.
How does ЦСКА transliterate to the Roman alphabet? I need something I can type into Google and get results in English (though I'd like to learn Russian one day). Do you have an official source for who trains at which club?

Also, Bepa is now (I believe since around Wimbledon 2004) coached by Lex Carrington.
Bepa's WTA Tour biography <http://www.wtatour.com/players/playe...layerID=260142> still says she's coached by Julia Kashevarova. However, a Google search has satisfied me that Bepa is indeed coached by Lex Carrington now.

Am I right in thinking that Bepa is still coached by Julia, as well as by Lex? In her US Open 2004 fourth-round interview, she was asked what Julia was doing to calm her down.
