Vera zvonareva dating Sex video chan ram
In doubles, she reached her first WTA final at Moscow with Myskina. She won one singles title, in Memphis, Tennessee and reached the final of the events in Cincinnati, Ohio and Philadelphia, losing to top-10 players Lindsay Davenport and Amélie Mauresmo.
In the final of the Memphis event, Zvonareva trailed hometown favorite Lisa Raymond 5–2 in the third set, before saving three match points and winning the last five games of the match to win the title, 4–6, 6–4, 7–5.
This included her first tournament win on grass, at the DFS Classic in Birmingham, England.
Her other title came in Cincinnati, where she played a nearly flawless match against Serena Williams in the semifinals, and beat Katarina Srebotnik in the final.
Zvonareva won three qualifying matches at the French Open to reach the main draw for the first time at a Grand Slam tournament.
She lost there in the fourth round to eventual champion Serena Williams, 6–4, 0–6, 1–6. Her ranking rose into the top 100 after the French Open and into the top 50 after the US Open.
“That is because she is improving every year – for the last four or five years, she has been focused like almost nobody, I can say nobody, she is really special and she doesn’t have much pressure because nobody’s focusing on her too much and she’s doing her job.
She lost in San Diego to fellow Russian Anastasia Myskina in a match that featured a final set tiebreak that ended 17–15. In August, she reached her then-career high of world no. Because of several withdrawals, Zvonareva was able to compete at the WTA Tour Championships, an event reserved for the top eight players in the world.
If Zvonareva does reach the final at this hard-court slam, she would be expected to at least be more competitive than she was last July on the Wimbledon grass when she won just five games against Serena, or when she took just three games off Clijsters when they played for the US Open title last September, a match that was a primetime embarrassment on CBS.
An intelligent woman who is doing an economics degree, Zvonareva does not care for fame, but she will want to demonstrate in Melbourne that she can compete when the arc-lights are switched on, when everyone is watching.
The event was just the second event she had played in her professional career. In 2001, she failed to qualify for WTA events in Key Biscayne, Florida and Moscow, but reached a semifinal at the ITF Circuit tournament in Civitanova, Italy.
Five weeks later, she made her WTA-level debut at the Tier I tournament in Moscow, beating World No. During this time, she also showed her adeptness in juniors' competition by winning the Orange Bowl under-18s event in 20.
