Career and personal history

The team

My team includes Eugenia Maniokova, someone who I have been with for 13 years. Anatoly Grigorevich Glebov was my general physical preparation coach for three years. I have a personal masseur. I played tennis friendlies with Anton Zaytsev for eight years, and then for six months with Alexander Krasnorutskiy. Husan Usmanov was my osteopath for a year.

The pair

Elena wrote suggesting we play together for the three tournaments before the London Olympics. According to the rules of participation, if one player is in the top ten, they can take absolutely any player from within their own country, regardless of ranking. Elena was exactly tenth. I had dreamed of getting into the Olympics all my life, so I agreed right away. There was, however, the threat of Elena’s results not being confirmed and then her losing her position as tenth.

We won the first two tournaments and advanced to the final straight away, we subsequently played in the quarterfinal at Roland Garros. We lost in the London quarterfinal. After that game, we already had a clear goal and worked for four years to make it a reality in Rio where we eventually won.

The shows

I remember ‘Evening Urgant’ most of all where Elena Vesnina and I appeared together right after the Olympics. I participated in a few ‘Match TV’ broadcasts. I’m very proud of being on the US ‘Tennis Channel’ which came to Moscow for a few days.

Hobbies and Interests

I like fashion and I find it interesting, I love studying wardrobe styling in particular. I like walking and shopping in my spare time. My circle of friends and family is very important, so I like spending time in the relaxed atmosphere of the dacha. Depending on my mood, I’ll sometimes go to a museum, but that happens pretty rarely. I find incredible views mesmerizing, especially Altai. I prefer the mountains to the sea. I’d also consider table aesthetics one of my hobbies; It’s something I really enjoy.

Favorite food

I’d say roast chicken and fish count among my specialties judging by feedback from my friends and people close to me, the same goes for breakfasts on beautifully laid tables. I love pizza.
