Svetlana Kuznetsova: Don’t call me Kuzy

Svetlana Kuznetsova blog photoDid you know that Svetlana Kuznetsova has a blog? Sorry, but it is in Russian, and she doesn’t update it often. There are only a couple of entries. Here are a couple of tidbits from her blog posts.

She doesn’t like being called Kuzy

“The fans have been asking me if I like being called Kuzy. I used to like it, and had no problem with it before. I don’t get offended but I think I am a little bit older now, no longer Kuzy, and would prefer if people call me Sveta or Svetlana. That’s my request! 

Clarifies who is who in her team:

“To clarify, Andrey Olkhovskiy is not my sparring partner. My sparring partner remains Alexander Krasnorutskiy. Andrey is my other coach. In the future, it is quite likely that I will be working with both Andrey and Larisa.”

    But those nicknames are what makes you appealing to your audience, I say keep the name. Look at some of the male players: Fedexpress, Darth Federer, Fed, A-Rod, Muscles, Rafa, etc.
    Just go with the flow.
