On June 25 Vera Zvonareva graduated from the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in her home Russia, in the domain of international economic relations.
The former world No.2, currently down to No.222, started the 2012 season ranked seventh but a shoulder injury and illness ruined her year and following her loss to Serena Williams at the London Olympics she hung up her racquet for the time being.
In February this year she had surgery on her right shoulder and she’s still rehabilitating. Thumbs up for using the time off for education! (source: The Slice)
