Angelina Shakhraichuk Signs with Baylor Women’s Tennis

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor head women’s tennis coach Joey Scrivano announced the addition of Angelina Shakhraichuk to his 2017 recruiting class on Thursday. The international standout is a native of Kiev, Ukraine.

Shakhraichuk has been ranked as high as No. 183 by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and is currently rated No. 810 in singles and No. 760 in doubles by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA).

“We are excited to welcome Angelina to our program and the Baylor family,” Scrivano said. “Angelina is a phenomenal athlete with an all-court game, great work ethic and positive mindset. She understands the developmental process, but is also prepared to come in and make an immediate impact. She will be a welcome addition to our team and has a bright future ahead of her at Baylor.”

Appearing as a finalist at the RPM Junior Open (Grade 1 tournament) in Vestec, Czech Republic was a highlight of her junior career. Shakhraichuk earned an upset victory over her 42nd-ranked ITF opponent in the semifinal round to advance.

Shakhraichuk has won two $10,000 doubles titles, one in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and another in Chisinau, Moldova, in 2016. She also reached finals in two more $10,000 doubles tournaments.

In singles, her top result occurred in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, where she defeated the 334th-ranked WTA player in the second round of the main draw. Shakhraichuk was a finalist in the tournament.

“I am very excited to join the Baylor family,” Shakhraichuk said. “I chose Baylor because of its outstanding reputation for developing tennis players and the connection I made with the coaches. This is a great opportunity for me and I want to make the most of it. I can’t wait to be a part of the team, contribute and help the team become stronger."

She is the daughter of Suitlana and Vadym Shakhraichuk. Her father, Vadym, was a professional sportsman and is currently an ice hockey coach. Shakhraichuk lists her family as the biggest influence in her life.
