Plus, this might just be my Sharapova-stan experience talking, but I'm not convinced that it's possible that a shoulder injury that was causing Vera so much grief for over a year could (or will ever) heal completely without surgery.
Unfortunately this. She has given that shoulder plenty of rest last year (only 20 matches) and still looked like shit whenever she stepped onto the court. Safina was also fine, when she rested and practiced, but then it took her all of six matches until she had to retire against Kirilenko at teh Australian Open again, took another three months off, and still nothing had changed. The question is, whether Zvonareva would consider surgery at her age or just walk away. Rafter walked away at a similar age, Haas came back.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: WTA #96: Vera Zvonareva

And people said Clijsters didn't vulture Slams when beating this mug in the finals Zvonareva has overachieved with her peak ranking even more than Wozniacki and that's quite something.

Re: WTA #96: Vera Zvonareva

The funny thing is, I actually like Zvonareva more than most of other Russian players. And the pathetic shit would only apply when I'd have said that Zvonareva is better than Mandlikova because she was ranked higher at her peak Chill out, will you?

Re: WTA #96: Vera Zvonareva

Zvonareva will be back. She has the motivation and is still working hard. Her game isn't like Sharapova or Safina where she is putting a lot of stress on her shoulder by hitting with heaps of pace. I'm expecting her to be top 30 again next year but as other people said it takes her a lot of time to come back. in 05/6/7 there were a lot of ups and downs before she started playing really well.

Re: WTA #96: Vera Zvonareva

One time I really enjoyed watching her play but, now these past few years I get uncomfortable when she goes into meltdown

I always feel like I never got to see the REAL Vera, sadly
