Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova visits Lacoste shop in iconic GUM during Moscow visit
The top-ranked Russian squeezed in some shopping before she made a winning start to her Kremlin Cup campaign.

No week in Moscow is complete without a visit to GUM, the Russian capital’s premier shopping destination across from Red Square.
Top-ranked Russian star Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova made her pilgrimage to the iconic mall ahead of her 2021 Kremlin Cup campaign, where she is the No. 4 seed.
Pavlyuchenkova won her opening-round match late Wednesday evening over Bernarda Pera, and has an outside shot of not only making her Top 10 debut but also clinching a maiden WTA Finals berth should she win the title. Before earning the 6-2, 7-5, victory, however, she stopped at GUM’s Lacoste shop to patronize the band that supplies her on-court kits.
“Thanks team @lacoste for such a warm welcome,” Pavlyuchenkova wrote, suggesting they would soon be in attendance for her first match.
Into the Kremlin Cup quarterfinals, the world No. 16 will next play either Ukrainian qualifier Lesia Tsurenko or Olympic silver medalist Marketa Vondrousova for a spot in the semis.
