Then a small number of people were engaged in it, and the competitions were held on asphalt surfaces.</p> <p>Elena Domnina became the first state tennis coach in Turkmenistan. The Mary sports school, where she worked all her professional life, gave a ticket to big-time sports to many famous athletes. Subsequently, many students of E.
