Wiki

Anastasia Sergeyevna Pavlyuchenkova (Russian: Анастасия Сергеевна Павлюченкова) (born 3 July 1991) is a professional tennis player from Russia and a multiple junior Grand Slam champion. Her career high is number 27, achieved on 23 March 2009. She has been coached by Patrick Mouratoglou since July 2007 and she currently lives and trains at Mouratoglou Tennis Academy in France accompanied by her mother Marina.

Born in Samara, Russia Pavlyuchenkova first made headlines by winning the 2006 Australian Open junior title, defeating Caroline Wozniacki. She then won the US Open junior title against Tamira Paszek and defended her Australian Open title in 2007, defeating Madison Brengle. Anastasia played for the Sacramento Capitals of the World Team Tennis league in the summer of 2006.

Her success in juniors enabled her to enter ITF and WTA tournaments, winning a small ITF tournament in Italy in May 2006. In October 2006 Pavlyuchenkova received a wildcard into the Kremlin Cup losing in the first round to rising Czech Nicole Vaidišová 6–3 6–3. She then barely missed out on qualifying for the 2007 Australian Open, losing to Julia Vakulenko in the final round of qualifying.
