Who is Elena Rybakina?
Born on June 17, 1999, in Moscow, Russia, Elena Andreyevna Rybakina is a professional Russian tennis player. At an early age, she and her older sister began participating in sports, primarily ice skating and gymnastics.
Her father, who was also interested in tennis, suggested that she play the sport instead after hearing that she would never make it as a professional in any of those other sports due to her height.
At the tender age of six, Rybakina picked up a tennis racket. In addition to her three hours of daily fitness training, she barely managed two hours of tennis each day. She had to juggle tennis with her academic responsibilities at her conventional high school, which wasn’t designed for athletes.
Having been coached by several talented individuals, Rybakina decided to go from Dynamo Sports Club to Spartak Tennis Club. She worked out alongside Evgenia Kulikovskaya and Andrey Chesnokov, both of whom were once ranked in the top 100.
Irina Kiseleva, a modern pentathlon world champion, was one of her personal trainers. She made history as the first player from Kazakhstan to win a major championship and is currently the defending Wimbledon champion.
