Selivanenko: “The appearance of Tursunov in Kudermetova’s team gives her game new features and revives it emotionally”

Vice-President of the Russian Tennis Federation (RFF), Alexei Selivanenko, commented on the Russian’s victory Veronica Kudermetova on the world’s second racket Iga Swiatek during the Tokyo tournament, noting that the beginning of the athlete’s cooperation with the coach Dmitri Tursunov influenced his style of play.

On Friday, Kudermetova beat Poland’s Szwiatek 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. Kudermetova will now have to play against her compatriot Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

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

— Veronica scored an important victory over one of the world ranking leaders after an unsuccessful American series. Are there any changes in his game after starting to work with Tursunov? Dmitry, after completing his playing career, in a short time became one of the most authoritative coaches on the tour. Therefore, her appearance in Veronica’s team certainly adds new features to the athlete’s game and reboots her emotionally, ”quotes RB Sport Selivanenko.
