Athletistic / Tennis. Russian tennis player Alina Korneeva has commented on not taking part in the US Open. The 16-year-old Russian was able to participate in the tournament qualifier, but refused to travel because she wouldn’t have time to get a US visa.

“We thought that if I won Wimbledon junior, we would play the US Open – because it would be a possible fourth Slam. But it didn’t work out and we decided we didn’t need to go anymore. And after the victorious “weaving”, it was too late to apply. Even when I played “Sotka”, I did not think I could qualify. I was told this after the awards in Portugal.

Korneeva: ‘I’m not annoyed by the parallels with Mirra Andreeva’

You don’t follow my progress in the WTA ranking? I’m not. I don’t think it’s very important now,” Korneeva said as quoted by the “Championship.”

Currently, the junior is ranked 218th in the world rankings.
