Ayumi Morita and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova went into the city on Sunday, to the Suria KLCC...
Suria KLCC is Malaysia's premier shopping center, located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers.
The two players hit with young fans on a mini-tennis court that was set up outside the mall.
Pavlyuchenkova met a young fan particularly keen to learn the ropes on the mini-tennis court.
Pavlyuchenkova's groundstrokes are lethal and she tried to pass down some forehand knowledge...
