Re: Articles & Interviews

The Russian Ana's that come to mind are Kournikova and Chakvetadze.

Her name is Ana-fucking-stasia.

When Nastya saw Melzer's pic, she started to talk about his haircut and not his outfit.

Any chance of this being more or less translated?

Try getting it translated by AltaVista Babel Fish Translation. It turns out a bit funny (the translation is quite literal) but you can get the gist of what's going on.

Re: Articles & Interviews

just a quick paragraph of Nastya from an interview with Kuznetsova

http://www.********************/blog...ls_031208.html

"On court, that's not the same for Kuznetsova's friend, Anastasia Myskina, who won '04 Roland Garros and is now pregnant and off the tour indefinitely. Myskina tried to come back last year at the French Open and couldn't run in a sorry first-round loss. Her bad feet hadn't quite healed and now, it's conceivable that the first Russian woman to even win a Slam may not return.

"Now she's focused on the baby," Kuznetsova said. "

Andreev replaces Myskina as Russia Fed Cup captain

03 Apr 2018

Igor Andreev has been named as Russia’s new Fed Cup by BNP Paribas captain, replacing the outgoing Anastasia Myskina.

Andreev, 34, a former world No. 18, will lead the Russia team in their upcoming World Group II play-off tie against Latvia in Khanty-Mansiysk on 21-22 April, where he will look to help Russia avoid dropping into Europe/Africa Zone Group I for the first time since 1997.

Andreev played 15 ties for Russia in Davis Cup by BNP Paribas and compiled a 14-14 win-loss for his country overall. He contributed two rubber victories during Russia’s Davis Cup title-winning run in 2006, and also represented his country at the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Outside of competing for Russia in international team competition, Andreev’s career highlights include reaching the quarterfinals at Roland Garros in 2007 and winning three Tour-level titles. He retired from the game in 2013 after a succession of injuries.

Myskina, meanwhile, departs after a four-year spell as Russia captain – sitting in the hot seat for all of Russia’s 10 ties since 2014 and leading Russia to the 2015 Fed Cup Final in Prague, where they fell to Czech Republic in a decisive doubles rubber.

MUMBAI - INDIA

Myskina: 'Seven years was not enough - but it was a good seven years'

The former French Open champion is not officially retired, but is in Mumbai this week in a coaching capacity.

November 1, 2018

Anastasia Myskina is still officially a WTA player - but she is spending this week in Mumbai as Margarita Gasparyan's coach.

The Russian last played on the tour at the 2007 French Open having turned professional in the year 2000, winning in Palermo the year before in only her second tournament in a main draw, and then suffered a series of shoulder injuries that pushed her further down the rankings and eventually forced her off the court.

“Sometimes I think seven years was not enough, but they were a good seven years," Myskina told the Indian Express.

She reached a career-high ranking of World No.2, and became the first Russian woman to win a Grand Slam singles title when she was victorious at Roland Garros in 2004.

Myskina was a contemporary of Maria Sharapova, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Dinara Safina, and Vera Zvonareva - who has recently returned to action following a break for study and parenting.

The 37-year-old also has children now - three boys - and is an administrator with the Russian tennis federation, who also give her coaching assignments - hence her appearance in India this week. She has also captained the country's Fed Cup team, leading them to the 2015 final, and thinks being a mother also helps her work with players.

“It’s a very tough job, but you learn how to understand the needs and wants of a child. You know how to help them,” she explained. “You become patient and that always helps you deal with the problems a player goes through. The only thing is that you can help them only when they are off court.”

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

‘Retired’ Anastasia Myskina returns to court… as coach

In an eventful career that lasted only seven years, Anastasia Myskina last played a competitive match at the 2007 French Open before leaving the game without officially retiring.

November 1, 2018

In a corner of an outer court, Anastasia Myskina sits patiently, watching silently as her ward Margarita Gasparyan competed in the first round of the Mumbai Open. Not many notice the presence of the veteran Russian, until Gasparyan calls for her coach between the two sets.

Dutifully, Myskina steps out of the shadows and marches on court, just as the eyes in the audience start to notice and recognise the fact that the 125K Series WTA event had in its presence a former world no 2, the 2004 French Open champion – the most decorated player present at the CCI tennis courts. “There are people who come to me for autographs and photographs,” she says. “But not many know that I have quit.”

Technically, she hasn’t. In an eventful career that lasted for only seven years, Myskina last played a competitive match at the 2007 French Open before leaving the game without officially retiring. But she’s moved on. Now a doting mother of three, she’s taken up an administrative role with the Russian tennis federation, but often gets coaching assignments. Her latest venture has brought her back to India, in the very country where she had won her last singles title as a player (in Kolkata in 2005).

It’s a job, she asserts, that has been helpful in her role as a coach. “It’s a very tough job, but you learn how to understand the needs and wants of a child. You know how to help them,” she says after Gasparyan beat Croatia’s Tereza Mrdeza 6-3, 6-2. “You become patient and that always helps you deal with the problems a player goes through. The only thing is that you can help them only when they are off court.”

That ‘motherly’ instinct serves her both on and off the court. She recounts an incident earlier in the day when she went to a food counter to bring Gasparyan a glass of juice. Realising the 24-year-old was in the company of three more players, Myskina brought back four glasses. “I did it without realising. But they started joking, ‘Oh look, she’s a mother, so she knows how many to bring.’”

Back when she was 23 though, she had become the first Russian woman to win a Grand Slam singles title. And she was a part of a golden generation of Russian tennis, which won two successive Fed Cup titles in 2004 and 2005, along with the likes of Maria Sharapova, Dinara Safina, Vera Zvonareva, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Elena Dementieva.

The competition within the country helped them get the results, Myskina says. “We used to push each other because only the top players got into the events like Fed Cup and the Olympics,” she explains. “It brought out the best in us, but at the same time, there was good friendship. Till date we talk regularly.”

Her relationship with Dementieva especially has been close. “We get together often and play,” she says. “Instead I’d rather spend time baking deserts. I love doing that and I keep bringing food for Elena. Her daughter and my son that train together. But never Margarita.”

Her own career lasted a very a short time, with injuries to her shoulder forcing her to drop rankings drastically till the point that she simply disappeared from the tour. “Sometimes I think seven years was not enough. But they were good seven years.”

Her on-off job as a coach gives her a chance to make appearances at tournaments, particularly the ones held in Russia which she helps organise because of her work with the federation. But coming to India was a memory she was looking forward to. “I was very excited, but when I submitted my documents for a visa it got rejected,” she says. “I’m just glad the embassy eventually helped me out.”

Officially, she’s still a WTA player despite coming to Mumbai in a coaching capacity. When asked if she intends to ever get back to playing, she smiles. “Elena and I keep joking that we will get back together as a strong doubles team, but that’s probably not going to happen.”

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
