Khachanov says he looks forward to opportunity to visit Armenia

Karen Khachanov, a Russian tennis player with Armenian roots, took to his Instagram page to answer some questions from his followers.

Asked how often does he visit Armenia, Khachanov noted that he has been there several times and look forward to the opportunity to visit Armenia.

By the way, back in 2018, Karen Khachanov said in an interview with NEWS.am Sport that he was born and raised in Russia, but has always had a close connection with Armenia and loves Armenia very much.

“I was born in Moscow, but I have both Armenian roots on my father’s and mother’s side. My grandfather was born and lived part of his life in Yerevan, and then moved his family to Moscow. My grandfather on the maternal side also had Armenian roots,” he said.

Tennis season has been suspended and will resume no earlier than July amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
