Larissa Savchenko was born in The Ukraine, played as a Latvian under USSR and now works with the Russian Fed Cup team as a coach.

The delightful 45 year old who collected 66 doubles titles and who had wins over the likes of Navratilova, Sabatini and Mandlikova says she enjoys her life now as a mother of two, a boy and a girl but to some degree also misses her playing days.

When We Are Tennis caught up with Larissa we were joined for a brief time by one of her children.
