Personal lifeEdit

Marta is completing her studies at the Moscow Institute for Sports and Fitness Studies, she is funded by a sports-academic scholarship from the Yeltsin Fund. As well as her native Russian she speaks English and Spanish, having attended the Spanish Immersion High School in Moscow. She has one older brother. She likes playing on hardcourt surfaces but her favourite and most comfortable surface is grass.[2]

In October 2010, Hiberno International and Marta signed a long term management agreement that will bring her to the heights she has the ability to reach. Marta has begun the upward curve needed by undergoing an intensive training camp in the Republic of Ireland at the Tennis Ireland BNP-Paribas National Academy in Dublin under the guidance of the Internationally respected Garry Cahill (former Ireland Fed Cup team captain and current Ireland Davis Cup team captain).[3]
