Abigail Desiantnikov Born January 2001, in Cleveland, OH, USA, to Russian native parents, Eugene and Irina, Abigail (Abby) Desiatnikov was introduced to the tennis ball at an early age. By age 3 she was following her father around their local tennis club in Mayfield Heights, OH, with a racquet and plenty of determination. She entered her first local G10s tournament at age 6, winning the back-draw. Abby has not slowed down since. By age 11, Abby had captured two of the most coveted G12s titles in junior tennis: the USTA National Championships in Alpharetta, GA, USA, as well as the prestigious International Orange Bowl title. That same year, Abby captured two back-to-back

USTA National Open titles, in the G14s age division.

China walked away with the highest medal count, totaling 42.

This past year, Abby turned 12 and has relocated with her family to Atlanta, GA, USA, to further pursue her tennis dreams. Despite the many changes to her training routine, tennis coaching and the beginning of a complete overhaul to her service motion, she captured the G16s USTA National Open title in May 2013. Most recently, Abby was a Silver Medalist in both the singles and doubles girls divisions at the International Children’s Games in Windsor-Essex, Canada, in August 2013. The ICG have 74 participating countries and is the largest gathering of young people (ages 12-15) taking part in sport in the world. Abby’s contributions brought the USA’s total medal count to 10.

Abby is currently ranked #1 on TennisRecruiting.com in her age group, class of 2019, where she has been consistently ranked for the past 2 years. Her rankings, in the more often fluctuating and older age division, on the USTA’s Girls 14&U list have steadily placed her in the top 20 over the past six months. Growing up, Abby has looked up to many amazing tennis players, and one of her long-time favorites is Rafael Nadal. She is excited and honored to meet and be involved in a program with one of her most admired role models.
