An important contribution to our team’s success was made by Anastasia Chervyakova, an International Master of Sports and a first-year student of the Master’s program at the UNN  Faculty of Physical Education and Sports. According to Klavdia Mayorova, head coach of the Russian  team,  "Despite the purely technical difficulties that Chervyakova had with her visas and travel, she looked very confident on the court and demonstrated her great potential".
