Dayana Yastremska and Amanda Anisimova are one of those players that need to do something different during a tough pre-season to get the extra motivation. Both teenagers are working hard to have a fantastic 2020 when they are expected to constantly remain in the top20 and possibly go 1 step further and break in the top10.
The Ukrainian has a huge potential and she formed an extremely strong team, also hiring Sascha Bajin. The German did a fantastic job with Naomi Osaka and Kiki Mladenovic before partnering with Dayana.
Dayana and Sascha like to alternate a tough training with funny moments and the Ukrainian posted a curious video during their off day.

The 18-year-old had a remarkable 2019 after she won her maiden title in Bogota and she reached the semifinal at the French Open. Unfortunately, her sensational year was devastated by the horrible sudden death of her beloved father and long-time coach. However, Amanda has a strong character: she managed to bounce back, and she is now ready to have an even better 2020. The young American loves playing Basketball like her friend Nick Kyrgios, and she also tried the sport (sort of) on the tennis court. Creativity seems to be the rule of the game.
