Hi, my name is Sasha. I am a former WTA professional tennis player with over 20 years of playing experience. After graduating from Division 1 university ( MS State ‘14) I started playing professional tournaments. Traveling all around the world I managed to reach career high ranking of #406 in singles and #387 in doubles. I was also ranked 12 UTR.
During the past 5 years I also worked with kids and adults of various levels whenever I had free time. I am passionate to help you improve in different aspects of tennis (mental, physical, technical).
Fluent in English and Russian.
Depending on a client’s level/personal goals I emphasize on making every lesson count and teach something important to get better. Being an all court player myself I structure my lessons to work on as much as possible, but also to make it fun. Identifying strengths and weaknesses, understanding your playing style are crucial first steps to becoming a better tennis player. I am always willing to help with those steps and also share my knowledge on many other aspects of tennis!

Happy to share that Sasha is a world class professional player and all-around superior coach. Sasha is a caring and reliable coach that packs more substance in one hour than I have ever seen or felt - the most fun and best workout ever! She effectively customized each session to advance my new two-handed backhand and volley skills and fitness improvement goals. I recommend Sasha for a beginner picking up a racket for the first time or a competitive player interested in quickly improving their game and taking it to the next level. Don’t hesitate to ask for her - we are lucky to have such a talented hitting partner and excellent coach in the area!
