Kristina Paskauskas


15/10/22

Kristina is born in 2004, so still a junior

And she has just made the final of a 15k 

Which, I think, merits a thread smile

She is currently WTA 1388 in singles, and 1052 in doubles

Has a junior CH of 426

Kristina has a younger sister, Gabia, who is also a very promising young player. The family live in Suffolk, I believe.

I think Kristina is off to US college, at K-State, this year - which is a sensible decision

(Just for the record, I was never overly impressed when I saw her as a junior - which obviously means she's destined for great things ! biggrin. I also note that her and her sister do quite a lot of travel - and usually not at the same places - different coaches accompagny each? Or mum/dad goes with one and aunt/uncle goes with another?)

Sounds like a good decision, the coaching in the US gets a great press, and it's brilliant to get an education at the same time. Well done for her win and good luck at Uni.

That's just the top of the iceberg

I've been in France for the last couple of months and you'd come out in cold sweat, SC, if you heard half the mixed-up nonsense that my brain now comes out with... it's embarrassing ! biggrin

Serious question because these things interest, nay fascinate, me, as a linguist, in a way all the obsessive discussion about the various rankings races does not:  just looking at the surname, would I be correct in thinking that the young lady is of Lithuanian extraction?

You are correct SC. Her Instagram actually says she is Lithuanian.

Cheers, TA.  smile  As I don't have anything to do with such media, that's the last place I'd have thought to look, though on reflection, it's arguably the first these days!

 Thanks for this. For some completely misplaced reason, I'd got it into my head that they had Greek connections. 

Given the sisters often play in the Baltic states, and are quite tall and blonde, Lithuanian makes a lot more sense ! 

PS Sorry, SC, I can't think of any particularly illuminating boo-boos, I should have written them down. I do know that, for me, speaking French is weird - I can go from A1 fine, fluent, spent 45 mins with lawyers yesterday, zipping through tons of stuff, no problems, have given presentations in French to 250 tennis people etc etc, to stumbling over one word in a shop, getting sort of blocked, and then my tongue being twice the size of my mouth and not able to get a single intelligible word out for the next five minutes.
