Will Vera Zvonareva ever win a slam title?

Sure she has the game, and saw lesser players like Stosur Schiavone winning one before her.

If she could just fix her head she could definetely win Wimbledon or the US Open.

Re: Will Vera Zvonareva ever win a slam title?

Can she? Absolutely. She has shown she can play well in the slams, and if she puts herself in the position of making another final - regardless of who the opponent is she is capable of winning one match on any given day.

Will she? My guess is no. As everyone knows, she has a tremendously difficult time regaining her composure in matches after she lets a good oppurtunity slip by. Not only that, but in all likely hood she has peaked in terms of ability. If her current form stays the same for the next two years, she will have a chance, but for my money she will never win a slam.

Hopefully not; few players are worse to watch. I hope she retires soon.

Are we really sure about that?

The "Schiavone Clause" has to apply to all questions of this sort (if she can do it, anyone can)--but, with that said, it would probably take another improbable aligning of the stars for Zvonareva to do it. Just like Wozniacki, she's always going to have the problem that she's going to most likely run into a more powerful player inform in the latter stages of big events - plus, Zvonareva has additional mental problems to boot, even if a draw ever did fall apart for her to take advantage of. All in all, very unlikely.

Re: Will Vera Zvonareva ever win a slam title?

I doubt it. She has a good game, but even her best game is still beatable by a number of others on a good day, and she has problems with the mental side of the game, especialy playing big matches, on top of that.

Also are we sure Stosur is a lesser player. I know head to head is alot about matchups but still Sam is something like 9-0 against her isnt she. Also Sam in addition to her U.S Open title made a run to the French Open final last year that was more impressive than either of Vera's slam final runs (not that they werent impressive as well, just definitely not moreso).

Considering she got spanked badly in both her slam finals, she really hasnt even been close to winning a slam these last few years, when she is probably already as good as she is going to get, and when the WTA is about as bad overall as it can probably ever get.

Then again with the way the WTA still is it wouldnt surprise me much or any if she joined the growing list of current 1 slam winners. However I wouldnt bet on it.

Tut tut tut... if TF should have taught you anything, it is that the very fact they won one at all makes them no longer 'lesser'.

Re: Will Vera Zvonareva ever win a slam title?

I like Vera's game a lot, but fear her window of opportunity might have closed now. She could possibly still win a slam but she'd need to ride her luck a bit to do so. Will be happy for her if she does it, but don't think it will happen.

Re: Will Vera Zvonareva ever win a slam title?

If she stays healthy and plays another 5 years, she'll have a chance.
She got to 2 finals & lost to Hall of Fame players.
If she can get back there & play someone who is nervous in a final, of course she can
But its a longshot

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I wish her good luck, but today she was more nervous than Agnieszka Radwanska in a round robin match.

Re: Will Vera Zvonareva ever win a slam title?

If Radwanska can out-mental you..., then you ain't winning a major. It's simple as that.

Always bet on black!
