Introducing Our New Pro
Please welcome our new pro, Svetlana Krivencheva! Svetlana is an incredibly accomplished player and a knowledgable and passionate coach. Here are a few words from her about her tennis background...
"Hi! My name is Svetlana Krivencheva, former WTA top 70 player. I was born in Plovdiv Bulgaria. I played on the Bulgarian FED cup team at 13. I was the number 1 player in all age categories 12 to 18’s and Ladies Champion in singles, doubles and mixed. I played in all the Grand Slams- Australian, Rolland Garros, Wimbledon and U.S. Open. I was selected to play in the Olympics in Sydney Australia representing Bulgaria. I won more than 20 titles in doubles and 3 championship titles in my career. I am a USPTR Professional level coach. I have a thorough knowledge of proper tennis technique, strategy of the game, nutrition and supplementation to maximize student’s abilities. I also speak 5 languages!"
DJTA Featured Player, Delta Wright
DJTA is very proud to announce our player of the month, Delta Wright! Delta is easily one of our academy's most improved players over the last year. Her commitment, hard work and love for the game has been evident as she often plays in all 6 hours of our weekly women's 3.0-3.5 liveball group, plays matches with friends from the group, and even joined a Los Angeles tennis league to get more matchplay and competition experience. It has been awesome to witness Delta take her game to the next level. Once uncomfortable attacking short balls and coming to the net, Delta is now a confident all-court player, able to attack off both wings thanks to her ambidextrous ability to hit forehands on both sides!
When she's not on the court, Delta spends her time being the mother of 2 very active girls, working as a premiere interior designer and performing as a professional lounge singer at spots around town.
Keep up the amazing work Delta!
