Alesia Zaitsava (Belarus) occupies position no.100 on women’s singles world ranking list this week. She is currently training in the BEC Centre of Excellence in Holbaek, Denmark.

-The trainings are very interesting. We do lots of work for the speed and we find very interesting details on the movements on court, she tells Badminton Europe.

Zaitsava was a semifinalist in Egypt International in women’s singles and the winner of the same tournament in women’s doubles with her partner Anastasiya Cherniavskaya. They are currently world no. 87.

-I still have one more tournament – Turkish International, until the end of the year. My aim is to rise higher in the world ranking by the end of the year, Zaitsava says to Badminton Europe.
