A powerful baseliner who can dictate play with her penetrating strokes when she's on her game, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has claimed three of her five titles in Monterrey (2010-2011 and 2013) and represented Russia in the 2011 Fed Cup final. The former ITF junior No. 1 won three singles and four doubles junior Grand Slam titles. She has translated her game to the WTA, reaching her first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the 2011 Roland Garros and her second major quarterfinal at the 2011 U.S. Open, finishing the season with a career-high, year-end rank of No. 16. Pavlyuchenkova began working with former No. 1 Martina Hingis as her coach in the spring of 2013. In September, 2013, Agnieszka Radwanska outlasted Pavlyuchenkova, 6-7 (6), 6-3, 6-4 in a two-hour, 45-minute epic in the Seoul final. Pavlyuchenkova captured her first Premier-level title in Paris, beating three Top 10 players in succession — Angelique Kerber, Maria Sharapova and Sara Errani — to claim her sixth career title in February, 2014. Her brother, Aleksandr, formerly served as her coach.
