Russia’s tennis star Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has shared screenshots of receiving abuse after suffering a defeat in the recently concluded Adelaide International.
The 32-year-old lost to America’s Jessica Pegula in the quarterfinal of the event in Adelaide with a score of 6-7, 7-5, 6-4.

Welcome back to the Top 50, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova! She defeats Katerina Siniakova 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the quarterfinal of the Adelaide International and return to the elite batch for the first time since returning from her knee injury. Hard work pays off! [📽: @WTA TV]

Pavlyuchenkova, in a post on her official account on the social media platform Instagram, shared screenshots of receiving abuse from different users with a caption: "Never-ending process that we, as tennis players, face after nearly three-hour battles. Positive vibes only."
The Samara-born will be hoping that her performance in the first WTA event in 2024 will give her the much-needed platform to perform better in the upcoming season. In 2023, she appeared in the main draw of the three Grand Slams. She managed to qualify for the third round or beyond just once.
Her best outing came at the French Open where she was knocked out after losing the quarterfinal to Karolina Muchova with a score of 7-5, 6-2. Pavlyuchenkova will begin her Australian Open campaign on Monday with a match against Croatia’s Donna Vekić.
