5 Things to Know About Anna Tatishvili - Tennis World
Many Georgian athletes have reached success and achieved worldwide popularity . Anna Tatishvili, a Georgian tennis player who lives in the U.S., is no exception.

Tennisworldusa.org has published an article about Anna , describing five things that sports fans should know about successful Georgian tennis player.

Here is the article:

" Anna Tatishvili sounds like a new name for the American tennis fans and experts. That is probably because not many know that Anna has already a 4th round US
Open appearance in her resume, targeted 2012. Back then, three years ago, Tatishvili was a Georgian tennis player. Having moved to the USA when she was thirteen with her family, basing her new life at Boca Raton. Working hard on her tennis, Anna lived happily in the United States attending the Evert Tennis Academy, showing great sings of improvement year after year.

A typically modern tennis player, Anna likes to stay close to the baseline and attack from the back of the court, putting all weight on the ball and forcing the rallies short to look for the winner. In New York this year, Anna collected what can probably be considered her best career win.

Facing World No 8 and US Open Series winner Karolina Pliskova, not only Tatishvili won the match, she literally outplayed her top 10 opponent, losing just three games in total. Firing winner after winner, aggressive and confident, Anna deserved the quick win. While on the court Tatishvili is all fired up by the fire of competition, off court the 25-year-old is very nice and calm as she answers the questions of the journalists.

Talking to Anna in New York, we decided to come up with the 5 most important things we feel the fans should know about her and her past. We tried to select those things most people maybe did not know before or that we feel it is important to know to understand Tatishvili's character better...

1) Her Entire Family Changed Nationality in 2014 to Become American

Anna decided to become officially American in April last year. The entire Tatishvili family moved to Boca Raton when Anna was 13, speaking very few English. Her sister had the hardest time, as she arrived in the US having to attend high school. Anna credits her family the most for her success. Tatishvili first moved for few months in the USA when she was 7 and then came back six years after to settle.

Since turning American in 2014, Anna has won two Grand Slam main draw matches, at the Australian Open and US Open this year. Since becoming American and having the USTA structures next door, now Anna has access to USTA physiotherapists and experts, which have helped her to improve and get to where she is today.

2) She Likes to Hit The Ball Flat

Anna describes her game as baseline attacker. She likes to hit the ball flat, as it is the thing that comes the most natural to her. She believes the matches outcomes also depend on her, because if in a good day her aggressive tennis can cause major damage to most WTA players (we add).

3) She Didn't Model Her Tennis Looking at Tennis Legends

Asked who she did look up to in building her tennis, Anna simply responded she never modelled her game to make it look like some past or present tennis champions. She likes to play her own way.

4) She Started Playing Tennis to Copy Her Sister

Anna started to play tennis because her two-year older sister is a former tennis player. Watching her playing, she decided to take on the sport and never left it from that moment on.

5) She Speaks Three Languages Fluently

Being born and having lived in Georgia, Anna speaks perfectly Georgian, but she is also obviously very fluent in English and also in Russian ",reads the article.
