Anhelina Kalinina reached her maiden WTA 1000 final at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia this month and ensured to enter the Top 25 ranking. Unfortunately, the Ukrainian was troubled by a leg injury during the title match and tearfully retired in the second set to hand the victory to Elena Rybakina.
During the emotional trophy ceremony, the 26-year-old expressed her heartfelt gratitude to her husband and coach, Anton Korchevskyi, for his unwavering support. Proudly observing her from the stands, he couldn’t help but display a contented smirk on his face.
After attributing a lot of her success in Rome to her fitness coach, Kalinina praised her husband’s support: “I wanna say thanks to my husband, he is doing everything 24/7 for me.”
Who is Anhelina Kalilina’s husband Anton Korchevskyi?
Anton Korchevskyi is a former junior tennis player whose career was cut short due to a back injury. He always accompanies Kalinina at tournaments and helps in all aspects of her career. “He’s doing 200% job all the time,” Kalinina told the WTA Insider a year ago, when her fitness coach was in Ukraine and couldn’t travel. “I’m just with my husband 24/7 and he’s doing everything.”
Kalinina and Korchevskyi keep their private life away from the public eye and don’t post much on social media. Anhelina’s husband is also Ukrainian. He is 29 years old. According to a quote shared by a Twitter account dedicated to Ukrainian tennis in September 2020, we can conclude that Kalinina and Korchevskyi got married in 2018. The couple just signed the marriage papers, without organizing a wedding ceremony.
A. Kalinina: “My husband A. Korchevskyy is my coach. He plays quite well. We registered the marriage 2 years ago but didn’t have any ceremony. We just headed to the pre-season trainings and then to Australia. He always accompanies me at tournaments. He is also in Paris with me”.
