Tennis - Ukraine's top-ranked tennis player Lesia Tsurenko has hired a new coach Adriano Albanesi, from Italy. Tsurenko has been working with him for six months. The 27th ranked Tsurenko says, “Now my coach is an Italian specialist.
His name is Adriano Albanesi. I am with him working for six months. But for periods only. We mainly meet a few days before the tournament, prepare for it and play together. In addition, I am working with Ukrainian specialists because you need to take care of your health in your career to continue, and overall feel good." Tsurenko continued, “At first it was just supposed to be one week.
We all came together, we understood each other. I liked that he always supports me maximum. We are easy to talk to, we like to be together." Tusrenko will start the new season in Brisbane and she hopes to build on her best season so far - she defended her title in Acapulco, reached the quarter-finals at the US Open, where she beat second seeded Caroline Wozniacki, made the semi-finals at Hobart and reached her career-best ranking of No.
26 in the world. Tsurenko was ranked around No. 40 when the two started working together and her game has certainly improved since her collaboration with Albanesi began. Also Read - Johanna Konta talks about gender pay gap
