Dasha practising with Anna Pomyatinskaya (Masha's other tennis playing cousin) at IMG Academy a year and a half ago.
That's pretty bad tbh.
Dasha is charming and natural. I hope she has a great time and a great tennis career at SMU.
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
Btw, the girl that beat her in her last "official" match (2012 Eddie Herr R1, 6-4 6-3), Jennifer Brady (I remembered that name ), now is through to the final at 50K New Braunfels. She probably improved in 2 years but Dasha didn't get destroyed in that match.
