Russian tennis player Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in an interview with OK! told about her views on family formation.
– What do you think parents expect from you now – sports victories or grandchildren?
– You wouldn’t believe it, the idea of grandchildren came more from me. To a lesser extent now. But a couple of years ago I had a period of how fashionable it is to talk now, to find myself. I thought, “I’m 27 now. I mean, I’m not a little girl anymore. I still want to play tennis and I think I can achieve a lot. But time is running out. Maybe it’s time to think about children.” But now I have calmed down, and I can say that the parents of grandchildren are not waiting for me yet. Mom says, “When you give birth, your life will be over. You’re gonna have to devote yourself completely to the baby and the family. You’ve got time. Play, live for yourself. You’ll have time for everything.”
– So you’re not ready to be a coach for your children yet?
– There’s no way I’m giving my daughter away to sports. There will be a boy – please, football, tennis, basketball, anything. Girl, no. And as a coach, I don’t see myself.
– Is family supposed to be a family?
– Yes! Often when you talk to someone, you ask yourself why this person spends time with me – because of my fame or because he really likes me? You want your friends and family to love you for who you are. To have not a coach, just a father and just a family. That’s what I’ve always wanted.
