Today is the 23rd birthday of Vera Zvonareva, Russian female tennis player currently ranked 28th in the world. I will use her birthday as an opportunity to take a look at her career achievements.
She has won five WTA Tour singles titles (2006 – Birmingham, Cincinnati; 2005 – Memphis; 2004 – Memphis; 2003 – Bol) and four WTA Tour doubles titles (2006 – US Open, Auckland, 2005 – Berlin, 2004 – Moscow). Her highest-ever ranking was number nine, in both singles and doubles.
This season: The first few months were quite satisfying. I will point out some of her best results in 2007: she reached Auckland final, fourth round at the Australian Open, and Indian Wells quarterfinals. But then, in April, left wrist injury occurred and she had to retire from her Charleston semifinal match. Zvonareva was sidelined by the injury all the way until the US Open.
Latest result: As No.27 seed Vera Zvonareva lost in the third round of the US Open to Serena Williams. (source: WTA Tour)
