In September 2007, it was revealed that Lepchenko had become a U.S. citizen and that she would represent

the United States in WTA and ITF tournaments. Lepchenko and her family, whose Russian–Ukrainian heritage

allegedly made them a target of persecution in their homeland, were granted political asylum by the United States.

They had lived in the U.S. for more than five years when Lepchenko began representing the United States.
