World number nine Vera Zvonareva will undergo minor right ankle surgery on Wednesday in Rotterdam.
The Beijing Olympic bronze medalist expects to be back on court in four to five weeks.
Zvonareva’s arthroscopic surgery to remove scar tissue will be performed by Dr. Niek van Dijk, the head of the Orthopaedic Department of the AMC-hospital (Academical Medical Centre Amsterdam, University of Amsterdam) and full professor in orthopaedic surgery at the University of Amsterdam.
She is expected to remain in The Netherlands for two weeks for extensive rehabilitation.

I just knew something like this was coming. Poor Vera has been suffering with this ankle for months now and she is finally taking care of it like she should. I do hope she doesn't rush back and finally allows it to fully heal. She has been tentative and obviously somewhat afraid of re-injuring it. Maybe now with the scare tissue removed (which was most likely the source of the lingering pain) she can have full faith and trust in her ankle and play free and to the best of her abilities.

Get well soon Vera. :yeah: :hug:

Good luck to Vera.

A benefit to Roadmap is finally showing a positive effect by having a long offseason for players to get healthy.

I hope she has a speedy recovery. She has had so many successful comebacks. If she could stay healthy, she could grab a couple of slams before the end of her carrer. Vera really has game IMO. Such a shame to see her continously going out with injuries.

Dodtors always talk about scar tissue after the fact. They would lose a lot of work if they told you in advance. What con artists they can be. I feel bad for Vera needs surgery.

After her loss to Pennetta at USO, she blurted "I hate this country". I still love Vera, but girl you didn't have to go there....
