Vera Zvonareva


Vera Zvonareva out of Australian Open with shoulder injury

Russian Vera Zvonareva will miss the Australian Open because of an injury to her right shoulder.

The 28-year-old missed two Grand Slams in 2012 - the French Open with the same injury and the US Open because of a viral illness.

"I will not be able to go to Australia this year," the two-time Grand Slam finalist wrote on her Facebook page.

"My body is not 100% recovered yet and I want to start when I know I can play the rest of the year."

Zvonareva, the former world number two, has dropped to 49th in the rankings after a frustrating year in which she was knocked out in the third round of the French Open and Wimbledon.

However, she won the Australian Open women's doubles with compatriot Svetlana Kuznetsova in January, beating Italian duo Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci in the final.

Zvonareva is yet to win a Grand Slam singles title, losing the US Open final to Kim Clijsters and the Wimbledon final to Serena Williams in 2010.

British pair Laura Robson and Heather Watson, meanwhile, will take part in the Hobart International in Tasmania as a warm-up to the Australian Open.

It will be Robson's first appearance at the event, while Watson will hope to improve on her first-round loss to Tsvetana Pironkova this year.

The tournament runs from 6-12 January and the Australian Open in Melbourne starts on 14 January.

Vera Zvonareva graduated from the Diplomatic Academy




 


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!

Here is the piece on WTA:


Zvonareva Graduates In Moscow        While her tennis career is temporarily on hold, Vera Zvonareva has completed a different chapter - something just as amazing as all those titles, Grand Slam finals and everything else. - See more at: http://www.wtatennis.com/news/article/3234167/title/zvonareva-graduates-in-moscow 


MOSCOW, Russia - While most of the stars of the WTA were battling it out at Wimbledon, one WTA star - in fact, someone who has done very, very well at Wimbledon before - was battling as well, just in a very different kind of way. Vera Zvonareva, a former World No.2 who made the final there in 2010, was graduating from university back in Moscow, getting a degree in international economic relations.


Zvonareva had been studying for the degree for several years, but having missed the last five months of 2012 due to illness and all of 2013 so far with a right shoulder injury, she found the time to wrap it up at the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation in Moscow.


"It feels great," Zvonareva said. "It took me six years - normally it should take three years, but because I was doing it at the same time as I was playing on the tour, it took me longer. I actually studied very hard over the last four months to catch up on everything I missed while I was on the tour. All of the hard work paid off in the end, and now I finally have my degree. I'm really happy about everything!"


For someone who has excelled so much in professional tennis, Zvonareva - who is best known for her Grand Slam finals at Wimbledon and the US Open in 2010 - admitted she was nervous at exam time.


"My final exam actually consisted of three exams. The first was English, the second was international economic relations, and the third one was defending my thesis. I was fine with the English exam, and defending my thesis was fine too, because I had been working on it for three years, so of course I knew what I was talking about. But the one for international econonmic relations, I was very nervous.


"I didn't expect that from myself. I was so nervous going into the room. My fellow students were all saying I had to go first, because I was a professional athlete, but I was so nervous they had to push me into the room! But I actually did really well. When I was going into the exams I was thinking to myself, 'Oh my God, just let me at least get Cs.' But I got all As, which was great! I was really proud."


So is this it - is Zvonareva done with academia? Not so fast...


"I've decided I'll go farther with my education," she said. "Right now I have a Masters degree in international economic relations, but I want to do the same in law too, so I'm planning on studying international constitutional law. That will be at a different school. But then after that's finished I'm hoping to eventually come back to this school and maybe do some scientific work and research."


With her academic career really taking off, what are the Russian's plans for returning to the courts?


"I had my shoulder surgery in February and since then I've been doing all the rehab. I'm really doing everything I can to get my arm and shoulder back to 100%. To be honest, I don't have a specific plan for when I'm coming back. At the moment I'm taking it one day at a time. I don't want to rush. I've been injured in the past and tried to come back too fast, and it doesn't usually turn out well. Right now the most important thing is just trying not to rush it and getting back to 100% before coming back.


"And I'm actually enjoying a little bit of time off from everything right now - from tennis, from school - I don't have exams to worry about anymore, so I can really focus on my rehab. So we'll see."


 

"That's the way the world works... right now." --Maria Sharapova at 17

And, with Vera's sort of education, you know she sees right through all the crap we watch going on around the game.  Don't you know Alaster & all the corrupters are scared pee-green of her? LOL C'mon back, Bepa!

Zvonareva Notches First Win Of Comeback :)...(Wrong draw however; Russian girls play/kill eachother)

Zvonareva did not play after the Olympics in 2012 and not at all in 2013 as she dealt with illness and a right shoulder injury that required surgery. She returned to the court at the start of this season with first round losses at Shenzhen and the Australian Open and came into this week at No.992 in the world. It would seem fitting that Zvonareva would get back on the winning track in Pattaya City, where she was triumphant in 2009 and 2010. And she did just that in beating Thai wildcard Peangtarn Plipuech, 63 62, to improve to 18-4 here. The competition gets much stiffer in the second round on Wednesday in the form of fellow Russian and No.4 seed Ekaterina Makarova, who down 63 22 against Olga Savchuk reeled off seven straight games en route to a 36 62 64 victory and her first win in three tries against the Ukrainian. Makarova's doubles partner and fellow Russian, fifth-seeded Elena Vesnina, also advanced in three sets. She defeated Vania King, 76(6) 67(5) 61, in a match that lasted eight minutes short of three hours. "It was a very difficult match," Vesnina said. "I was a little bit nervous, maybe still a little bit tired from Melbourne, as I arrived at the last moment and didn't have a chance to get used to the different conditions. It's humid here and the ball flies differently, so I'm really happy that I won today." Yet another Russian, qualifier Alla Kudryavtseva, also moved on but there was some bad news for Russians, with No.2 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova having to withdraw from her second round match against Julia Goerges because of a left hip strain. "I am sorry I had to pull out of this event," Kuznetsova said. "This is a very nice event with good weather. I would love to play more but unfortunately my injury got worse last night. I like this tournament and look forward to coming back again."
