Vera Zvonareva: Little princess of Wimbledon 2006.

Ok, Amelie is the Queen. But Vera!

She's playing the best mixed-doulbles tennis that I've ever seen. She's playing terrific!

Well done Vera and Andy!

yes she played amazing tennis...but she tends to be streaky like this,great tennis for a few matches and then sub-par for no apparent reason sometimes...lets just hope it carries forward to her singles game!

She was fantabulous. She carried Ram for the win. I can't believe she's not doing that great in singles when she showed out there earlier how good she is capable of. And get this she was smilling and having fun!~!~!~ How come she don't do that in singles????

Vera has caught some terrible draws this yr, Kim in the first rd. here.. Vera is a better player than her WTA ranking indicates. Very happy for her success today.

I think she relaxes in doubles, she smiles a lot more and never has a meltdown.

She's always superb in mixed doubles. It's not her first mixed GS crown.

I was really impressed. I was rooting for VeeBob, but Vera deserves some success and joy considering her singles performaances of recent. She strikes the ball so well... and she seems like such a sweet girl.

And this was Ram's first slam title - so well done to both. They REALLY deserved it.

Hopefully this will give her confidence for the rest of the season!! Hopefully she won't get a top player at The US Open right off the bat again

Vera just won singles title at Birmingham a few weeks ago didn't she? (But noboday paid attention.) I think that's a good sign that she is back on her feet.

Didn't she take the fed cup doubles decider in 04 too?

She as playing really well.

Her ranking in singles would probably be a lot better if she hadn't had two awful GS first round draws and teh cras new rules meant you have to count two 2 points in your ranking total.
