My favorite sports memory/moment/event is….. when I played in the U12 Junior European Championship final,  This was my first international event and also the start of my career as an Elite Player in Europe. This was the first time I experienced the feeling that Tennis was my destiny.

I started playing at the age of 5 in my home country Georgia. Since the very first day Training, Competing and now Coaching I have committed to this wonderful sport as my chosen Lifestyle.  

Academically I hold a degree in Sciences and Journalism and also Primary Education. I have worked in Primary Education simultaneously with my Coaching Career.  

As a Player I held the National number 1 Ranking  in Georgia in all Junior Age Groups from 12 Under to 18 Under.  Some special points are - 

  • Georgian junior team first number.
  • Participant in numerous national and international tournaments
  • Represented Georgia in the national team under 14 and under 16.
  • Participant in Eastern European and European Junior Championships in every age category 

Notable Accomplishments: 

  • Tennis Europe junior tour Girls Under 14  Ranking - 125 
  • Tennis Europe junior tour Girls Under 16 Ranking - 54
  • ITF Under U-16 ETA -  Ranked 16 
  • National Champion of Georgia for U-12,  U-14,  U-16, and U-18
  • Number 1 player in Georgian National Team

With my playing career ending in 2013, I moved to Professional coaching in both Europe and USA. My Philosophy is based on Discipline, Hard Work and Passion for the game. I ask players to follow my lead in Energy, commitment and I try to help them to understand that giving all they have will lead to great pleasure throughout their Tennis Career.
