In an interview, former Russian player Elena Vesnina was asked if she still watches tennis on TV as she recently became a mother and did not compete. "I watched the US Open final between Bianca Andreescu and Serena Williams", said Vesnina.
"I watched the final between Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal fully. I did not go to bed. After the second set, my husband and I realized that something would happen. I just try not to lose top matches. I saw a bit of Wimbledon, which I love a lot.
I saw a young Coco Gauff, a very promising girl." On her health, Vesnina added: "I feel very well despite I have not been sleeping for 11 months - we often wake up. That's unbelievable happiness. Throughout all this time basically I did not appear anywhere, I was completely focused on my kid.
I am very pleasant in seeing how my daughter grows and changes, how she switches from being little to a person who already knows everything. Leaving the previous life is something really worth." Asked why she chose Elizabeth for the name, she replied: "I always liked this name and I thought that if I had a daughter, it would have been nice to call her this way.
So my husband and I met together to start a conversation about kids. And he says, You know, I like the Elizabeth name a lot. I would like my daughter to be called like this. I look at him and I think, Well, that's all. So we will have Elizabeth. When they figured out that we would have had a daughter, no questions came up."
