World No. 11 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is the highest-ranked Russian woman in the WTA singles rankings. The 30-year old has been in the Top-50 rankings for more than 12 years having broken into the Top-50 for the first time in 2008. Having won 12 singles titles on the WTA circuit, she also won 3 junior Grand Slam singles titles and was the junior World No. 1 at the age of 14.

Along with Ana Ivanovic, the Russian has the eighth-longest streak of continuous Grand Slam appearances. Anastasia played 48 consecutive Grand Slam events starting from the 2008 French Open till the 2020 Australian Open. She has reached the quarter-finals of all the Slams with the French Open seeing her best performance as she finished runner-up at the Slam in 2021.

In a recent Russian interview, the World No. 11 talked about many aspects of life on the WTA Tour. One of the many topics she spoke upon was who is the baddest b***h on the Tour. While she refrained from taking any names, she, however, did answer the interviewer’s questions when asked about former World No. 1 and 2-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza.

“I’m not, I’m a shitty person though. From a young age, I love taunting people, I have a characteristic character, but I’m not a b***h. That’s probably due to my brother, he also educated me a while when I was little. We’re very honest and very open. I’d never spread gossips, I don’t like gossips at all. It’s all because I used to hang with boys all time, I’m more masculine in this sense.

“Muguruza, I don’t think she is a bitch. I could never understand that why she doesn’t greet anyone. For example, we walk towards each other, she just looks through me. I don’t get it, is it so hard to say hello? We know each other so well, we trained together in Barcelona. Even if we didn’t, it’s common courtesy,” said Anastasia.
