Current and Previous Coach, Club & Academies

* I started playing tennis in Oct. 2013 at a small tennis club by my house.

* I was taking group lessons and didn’t even think about playing tennis professionally till 2015. In 2015, I played my first tournament and won it. After this a lot of people said that I was talented and I started to work harder. Since 2017 I am working with Serhiy Zhytskyy. He always travels with me for all tournaments and getting me ready for the adult tour. Serhiy has an extensive experience in the WTA tour and his best players were in the TOP-100. that’s a great inspiration for me and I believe that having same goals and working hard as a team we can achieve big results together.


I've worked with Anastasia as a sparring partner for two years. She is very focused, hard-working and thoughtful player. She is a quick-oriented on the court, fast to adapt during a game. In my opinion, she has a great future in professional tennis, and today she has good rating at her age group athletes .

I have been working with Anastasia for over a year. We conduct physical training sessions between tournaments. She is confident, focused, hardworking. I see her desire to work on the court, because I often attend her tennis training in order to understand and, together with her coach Sergei, make a decision on what to work on next. I am delighted to be part of the team and to help the young athlete in her professional career.
