Here's Anna's facebook fanpage.
Here's her YouTube channel. There are quite a few videos of her hitting there.

Here's the longest one. Her backhand is definitely her favourite shot :p

Anna said she's planning to play more ITFs this year. Hopefully she can make it into the Top 100 :)

She lost in R1 1 & 2 to Sabalenka. It may sound bad, but Sabalenka slayed everyone then and won the tournament. So it's okay, better luck next time! :)

Great tournament for Anna! This was a really strong field for a G2 event. She also reached the doubles final with Grammatikopoulou.

She's received a MWC into G2 Yeltsin Cup this week.

She also reached the doubles final with Smagina. This week she's up to #256! These past two weeks she's been rocketing up the rankings. One week ago she was #470 and two weeks ago she was #704!

Her form is really impressive. She's definitely transitioning quite quickly and easily to ITF events from the 14&U Tennis Europe circuit which she mainly played last year. Hopefully she can keep this up :)
