World No.2 Vera Zvonareva received the Best Tennis Player award in her hometown of Moscow, Russia, and eagerly shared her excitement on Twitter.
I got an award from the hands of the chief of the Presidential Administration of Russia, Sergey Naryshkin!
It is an honor for me to be recognized in my home country! Thank u so much!!!
In addition, we learned that Zvonareva plans to finish her studies next year and get a degree in International Economics. The topic of her thesis is interesting, as she blended her career of an athlete with economics: Sport as an Instrument in Raising Russia’s Competitiveness in the World.
