It’s been nearly six months since the annual tournament, Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris and since the latest champions, Savva Rybkin and Anna Pushkareva, raised their well-deserved trophies. What have these players been up to since?
There was no rest for Anna Pushkareva, who immediately after her victory went up north to the small Swedish city of Kramfors. She made it all the way to the final. Since leaving Sweden, Pushkareva has reached numerous semifinals on the ITF Junior Tour. During her time in Morocco in the month of May, Pushkareva captured another spot in the final and also secured a first place in doubles.
For Savva Rybkin, a few weeks after his victory in Kungens Kanna, his next adventure took him to Uzbekistan, where he made back-to-back appearances in the final. In May, however, it was finally time for Rybkin to capture another victory, after losing two finals in a row. Rybkin stayed consistent and won the tournament in Kyrgyzstan, also two weeks in a row.
Both players have, since Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris, reached their career best on the ITF Junior Tour Ranking. Pushkareva is now ranked number 366, and Rybkin is ranked number 567.
