Biography

Date of Birth 2001-03-12
Nationality Russian Federation
Age started tennis 5
  • I've been a tennis player since the age of 5. Until 13 I trained in Moscow and played TE tournaments. Because of financial problems I didn’t play tournaments for 2 years, but it didn’t break me, I continued to train and believe in myself. At practice, I was noticed by the famous player Nadia Petrova (#3 WTA) who sponsored my trip to the Spanish Academy and then to Poland, where I met a famous coach Tomasz Iwanski. He said I have a great potential and I started working there with a coach Tomasz Zabrocki. After two years I achieved solid results breaking into TOP200 ITF juniors. I am very hard-working, purposeful and very motivated. And I believe that I can achieve a lot in tennis.

Expert’s resume

Valeriya has a great well-placed first serve. She demonstrates a very good rhythm in a motion, a high ball toss, good body rotation. A stable second serve, though she places it too short in the middle, making it easy to attack. Nice return of serve - good swing, fast reaction, and good control of return variations - down the line and cross court. A powerful, offensive forehand with a good spin, also can hit it flat when she needs it. She uses her legs well to adjust to the ball and find a perfect hitting spot. A solid backhand, which she can further improve if better using legs and body weight when making a shot. Her natural ball feeling allows to direct her slice shots well, but she can improve the technique to hit it with a lower bounce on the opponent side. She reads the pointsplay well and often knows the best time to use the slice. Overall, she is a universal player with great variety of offensive skills and strong volleys that she's not afraid of using to finish the point. She can dictate or keep the ball in play on the baseline changing the pace and spin well.
