Starting to work with Tursunov is a very good step for Kudermetova, believes Dmitrieva

Multiple USSR tennis champion Anna Dmitrieva told that she started working with a coach. Dmitri Tursunov – a very good step for Veronica Kudermetova.

Tursunov joined Kudermetova’s coaching staff in September. Previously, he worked with Belarusian Arina Sabalenka, Estonian Anett Kontaveit, British Emma Raducanu and Swiss Belinda Bencic.

On Friday, Kudermetova beat world number two Iga Szwiatek of Poland for the first time in her career. The quarterfinal match of the Tokyo tournament ended in a victory for the Russian with a score of 6:2, 2:6, 6:4.

— Šwiętek did not play the best match. Apparently she’s not in the best shape. But this does not detract from the merits of Kudermetova. It is interesting to follow her now, as she holds her first tournament under the leadership of Mitya Tursunov. As I understand it, Sergei Demekhin – her husband and coach – did not know what to do. Over the past few months, Veronica has performed extremely poorly. In fact, she didn’t win a single match and lost confidence. She had to get out of this state.

To say after one match that Tursunov has already lifted Kudermetova is probably premature. But this is a very good step for her. I really believe in Tursunov, even if he didn’t really succeed. But at the same time he did an excellent job with Sabalenka, and in six months he raised Kontaveit from the middle of the hundred to second place in the world. “He has a secret about women,” Dmitrieva told .
