Elena Vesnina is coached by her father Sergej Vesnin and she started playing tennis when she was 7 years old in Sochi, Russia. Her tennis idol is Martina Hingis and she likes to play on hard and clay surfaces. Besides tennis she also likes basketball, soccer and ice-hockey. She's currently (February 2008) among top 50 players in the world but she's yet to show all her potential, and she still lacks some major results. She likes to play on baseline, and she's also well capable on playing on net too, but she needs to work more on her strength, despite her style that is more into the placement and precision.
Elena Vesnina likes reading, shopping, she enjoys going to cinema, her favorite actor is Will Smith and favorite movie "Men In Black". Her favorite cities are Rome and Sochi, and she enjoys traveling a lot.
Elena Vesnina has the potential to advance in rankings in the upcoming years but this will require more powerful and precise shots, especially when she plays against top ranked players.
And here's one very nice Elena Vesnina video.
