Defending Citi Open champ Svetlana Kuznetsova told her US ‘visa is waiting for her’
Svetlana Kuznetsova has received some positive news with regards to her United States visa after the US Embassy in Moscow told her that her it is ready for collection.
Two-time Grand Slam champion Kuznetsova revealed earlier this week that she had to pull out of the Citi Open “due to my problems with US visa” adding that she has “never had issues like this in my life”.
However, the spokesperson for the US Embassy in Moscow Andrea Kalan claims that everything has been sorted out.
Kalan revealed on Twitter that the defending Washington champion’s “visa is waiting for her”.
We’ve seen press reports about tennis player Svetlana #Kuznetsova and her #visa concerns. We have reached out to her directly to make sure she can travel and compete, but no answer. If you’re reading this, Svetlana, give us a call – your visa is waiting for you!

And the Russian was happy with the message, but it remains to be seen when she will kick off her hard-court preparations in the US.
