Thread hasn’t been updated for a while, so here’s a brief catch-up:

Biggest news is the Pro Tennis Team, which Iroda started in August 2015, with help from her cousins, it focuses on coaching kids. Located at the Tashkent Tennis Centre, and this year expanded to a second location in Samarkand. I’ve lost count of the number of coaches/trainers/employees, so it’s grown into a large team, and you only need look at all the smiling kids and smiling team members (just like Iroda can’t stop smiling) to judge how successful it’s been. Iroda’s done a fantastic job. Iroda Tulyaganova Pro Tennis Team social media: Instagram and Facebook 1 and Facebook 2

Also congrats to Iroda on becoming the new Uzbek Fed Cup captain, which happened in the summer. First tie under Iroda’s leadership was in July, in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. UZB narrowly missed out on promotion to Zone Group I after falling 2-1 to Hong Kong in the final play-off. https://www.fedcup.com/en/teams/team.aspx?id=UZB

@Mike_T - It's the former Kutuzova. I had to change my account so never got the PM. Sorry for the delayed response. Let me know if you want to resend to this username. Thanks!

I know I have asked this a lot but would love to see any old matches of Iroda (besides what is out there) if anyone has any they could upload to YouTube. Would be great for the quarantine! :)
