She's playing well but not playing THAT well, she caught a break with JJ's retirement, Clijsters self-destructed and well, Pironkova remembered she's ranked 80something in the world in the last two sets of their match.

Re: Why on earth is Vera Zvonareva playing so well now?

She takes advantage of her draw and just did enough to beat her opponents.
I'm not convinced yet with her form since it's not consistent (like what she did a couple of years ago) but at least she deserves what she gets.

She isn't even playing nearly as well as she was like 1-2 years ago, before getting injured in Charleston.

Re: Why on earth is Vera Zvonareva playing so well now?

Vera is a fantastic player who had that horrible injury that forced her out for so long, before she was injured, wasn't she no.3 or so, she was in the ascedency, she had just made the YEC final (08) and was preety consistent. She seems to have found her nerve agian.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Why on earth is Vera Zvonareva playing so well now?

Zvonareva is an immensely talented player, she always was.

Vera's game has competency over every major shot. There's really nothing she can't execute decently well. She has to put together a series of her shots to operate at a high level. The problem is she doesn't really have a standout weapon which is when she suffers due to first-strike players who don't allow her to do so.

Re: Why on earth is Vera Zvonareva playing so well now?

I think she hasnt been confident since the ankle injury.
But this tournament she beat Wickmayer, Jankovic and Clijsters before the SF.
Probably more by high level consistency than being great

I noticed that JJ was dominating her before she injured herself and saw her sitting around at the back of the court while Kimmy blew herself up!

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

She's not playing that well. She's just a bit more composed.

to new beginnings.

Hitting partner, not coach. They're childhood friends.

He's played doubles with Bepoa and also with Alisa:




Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......
