We caught up with Ksenia to get some insight to this fierce competitor.

What is your favorite thing to do off court?

Ksenia: Hm, I love to sing a lot, and I’m pretty good with that! I like to go shopping with my friends, and spend time with my family…. it’s really nice, cause they live in another country so the time is special

What makes you laugh?

Ksenia: Actually my friends, my small brother, I mean people who are around me (my team), I really enjoy every moment I’m with them

What is your favorite thing to cook?

Ksenia: I can cook a lot of things, but the best is Borsch (Russian soup)….so inevitably I will be a good wife in the future lol

Who is your favorite actor/actress?

Ksenia: My favourite are the Russians. I think they are the best ones, but I’m a patriot.

How long have you been with Wilson?

Ksenia: Such a hard question.. I’ve been playing with Wilson all my tennis years, I love it so much.

What do you love about your Wilson racquet?

Ksenia: Everything is perfect, the rackets, the Wilson Team…. I am really happy that I’m a part of it.

Exclusive Wilson players Nieminen and Keothavong  going strong

Sporting Wilson Tennis gear from head to toe, Jarkko Nieminen and Anne Keothavong are playing some of their best tennis this week.

Jarkko Nieminen wore his Wilson Tour Vision sneakers and swung his Wilson Six.One 95 BLX tennis racket to speed past Blade 6-0 6-2 to reach the Stockholm semifinals.  It’s been a fantastic back half of the year for Nieminen, as he reached the finals of Bangkok and the quarterfinals of both Tokyo and Metz.

“Wilson is an elite performance brand and playing with the best stuff out there is helping me play some of my best tennis,” said Nieminen. “As Wilson’s first exclusive player, it’s nice to see the tour presence grow so that players around the globe recognize just how great Wilson is with all products.”

Nieminen will now take on Soderling for a spot in the final of the Stockholm Open.

In Luxembourg, Anne Keothavong swung her Wilson Tour BLX racket to reach the semifinals after defeating fellow Wilson player Iveta Benesova in three sets. Coming back from injury earlier this year, Keothavong has been climbing back up the ranks and has found her form this week, with wins over former Top 10 player Schnyder and former Top 20 player Razzano.

“Wilson has always been there for me for my rackets and with the new apparel, it’s just fantastic. There is definitely buzz around who’s wearing what in the locker room and it’ll be great to have even more players on the Wilson Team.”

Keothavong will play Vinci as she vies to reach her first WTA Tour singles final.

“Feels awesome to be winning,” said Fish. “With my fitness level being at its best and having my BLX racket that I know I can count on, I have no frivolous worries and focus on the important things on court.” 

Fish, who won in Newport earlier this month, defeated Isner in a scorching 2 hour, 45 minute match with the on-court temperature nearing 150 degrees. 

In doubles action, Scott Lipsky and Rajeev Ram beat Bopanna and Vliegen 6-3, 6-7 (4), 12-10 in the doubles final. Lipsky and Ram did not lose a set until the final. 

“We are proud of our guys,” said Massimo Calvelli, Wilson Global Tour Director. “This is the beginning of the US Open Series and it’s nice to see them playing some great tennis already.”
