Her parents were instrumental in her career
The tennis star was born in Freehold Township, New Jersey, on 31 August 2001. Amanda Anisimova’s parents are mother Olga Anisimova and her late father Konstantin Anisimov, who was her long-time coach.
Her parents emigrated from Russia to the US before she was born to give their older daughter, Maria, better opportunities. They worked in the finance and banking industries.
Anisimova began playing tennis at a very young age and was inspired by older sister Anna, who went on to play college tennis for the University of Pennsylvania. The family moved to Florida when Amanda was young to access better training opportunities.
Sadly, Konstantin Anisimov unexpectedly passed away in August 2019, before Amanda had turned 18 years old.
Konstatin Anisimov died after an unexpected heart attack, age 52.
