Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova

19-year old Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is one hard-hitting WTA challenger. After a successful year in 2010, the sky is the limit for the husky Russian. Anastasia is coached by her brother Aleksandr Pavlyuchenkov, a graduate of the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy. Anastasia has good genes as her grandmother was a USSR basketball player and her father an Olympic canoeist.

Anastasia prefers clay and relies heavily on one of the hardest forehands in the women’s game. A baseliner by design, players try to avoid extended rallies with Anastasia.

Her career won-lost record stands at 152-81. In 2010, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova notched 40 wins against 21 losses. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is no longer a work in progress. 2011 is her year to shine.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova began tennis at age 6 and joined the tour at 15 years old. She has finished in the top 50 in each of the past three seasons. In 2010, Anastasia won her first two WTA titles at Monterrey and Istanbul defeating Hantuchova and Vesnina in the respective finals. She reached the quarterfinals in 5 events, reached the 4th round at the U.S. Open and the third round at Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Anastasia suffered a foot injury at the end of the season.

Anastasia is ready to break out of the shell. She gained a great deal of confidence in 2010. Not only did she capture two titles but she also was competitive in every match and pulled off several upsets. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova will win a major sooner rather than later.

Watch out for Anastasia in Australian Open 2011.
