Re: Vera Zvonareva - Interview Thread

From Vera's first round match in Pattaya on WTA website:

http://www.wtatennis.com/news/articl...win-since-2012

Zvonareva Notches First Win Since 2012 Vera Zvonareva, who returned to action earlier this month after being sidelined with a shoulder injury, beat a Thai wildcard to advance to the second round of the PTT Pattaya Open.
PATTAYA CITY, Thailand - Former World No.2 and two-time Grand Slam runner-up Vera Zvonareva recorded her first win in a year and a half on an undefeated day for Russians in the first round of the PTT Pattaya Open on Tuesday.
Zvonareva did not play after the Olympics in 2012 and not at all in 2013 as she dealt with illness and a right shoulder injury that required surgery. She returned to the court at the start of this season with first round losses at Shenzhen and the Australian Open and came into this week at No.992 in the world. It would seem fitting that Zvonareva would get back on the winning track in Pattaya City, where she was triumphant in 2009 and 2010. And she did just that in beating Thai wildcard Peangtarn Plipuech, 63 62, to improve to 18-4 here.

Re: Vera Zvonareva - Interview Thread

On WTA website, after her match against Makarova:

"I had too many unforced errors and was not aggressive enough," Zvonareva said. "But overall it went better than the Australian Open. I feel like I'm improving a little bit every day. I wish I could make bigger strides, but I have to keep working hard to be able to play the tennis that I want to play.

"After you haven't competed for a year and a half and have surgery, it's a difficult challenge to come back. Shoulder surgery for a tennis player is quite a dangerous thing. There are a lot of players who weren't able to come back and ever play tennis again, so for me it was a challenge to see what it takes to come back. I have energy and a desire to work, and tennis had given me so much in my life, so I just wanted to give it a try."

We support you, on your way back to the top form !

Re: Vera Zvonareva - Interview Thread

Vera Zvonarea, after Indian Wells R1 against Shuai Peng:

“It was a tough match,” said Zvonareva. "I took a little risk in the last game because I had to and unfortunately it didn't work out for me. I made a couple of mistakes and I think that helped her to break me in the last game. I think my game is better than it was in Australia, so I can't complain too much."

"I have to keep working," said Zvonareva, who also is playing doubles in the tournament. "Any matches that I can get is great for me, either in singles or doubles or whatever. Playing out there against the top players in the world is how you're going to get your game back. You can practice as much as you want, but playing is different. I just need to get matches."

Thanks for posting this Salar

I like her approach to play the best to get game back. Yes, she will tumble a few times, but she will benefit later from it, I think. Just hoping she stays all right physical

Zvonareva: Mylan WTT A ‘Prestigious Opportunity’

By: Matt Fitzgerald




June 23, 2014




The road back from a serious injury is a test of character for any athlete. In many professional sports, athletes have the luxury of returning to their team and previous role. Tennis however, demands its players win matches in order to reclaim a place among the game’s elite.




Vera Zvonareva is striving to do just that. Four years ago at Wimbledon, Zvonareva advanced to her first of two successive Grand Slam singles finals and ascended to world No. 2 in the WTA rankings. A mainstay in the top 10, the Russian owned 12 singles titles by the time 2012 rolled around. But a series of setbacks, including a right shoulder injury that ultimately required surgery, derailed Zvonareva. The former Olympic bronze medalist was sidelined from August 2012 to January 2014, followed by a three-month absence beginning this March.




Looking for a resurgence, Zvonareva is turning to Mylan World TeamTennis as a member of the Austin Aces. The 29-year-old will make the most of the three-week season in July, receiving guaranteed match play in a quick, competitive format, as well as encouragement from her teammates.




“Mylan WTT is a very popular league among high level tennis pros. It is a very prestigious opportunity for me to participate in such a competition,” Zvonareva tells WTT.com.




“I think it is also a great opportunity to get back to the competition mood after being sidelined due to an injury. It is a great possibility to experience support from teammates which is quite an extraordinary thing in tennis. Usually tennis players are solo players but Mylan WTT brings a different atmosphere to the tennis court and the excitement of being a part of it is amazing.”




The Aces are one of two Mylan WTT franchises to debut next month. Zvonareva is expected to play a pivotal part on a team headlined by Austin’s own Andy Roddick.




“Andy is a great player and very well known around the community,” Zvonareva says. “Being a part of a newly formed team is a very special moment for me. I know that Texas has a good tennis history. Andy started playing in Austin so I hope we can establish a good team and create a community of Austin Aces fans.”




Before joining Roddick and the rest of the Aces, Zvonareva looks to draw inspiration from a familiar setting: the lawns of Wimbledon. The former finalist will take on fellow wild card Tara Moore on Tuesday in her first match at the All England Club since the London 2012 Olympics. Zvonareva is also participating in women’s doubles alongside two-time reigning Mylan WTT Female MVP and Washington Kastles star Martina Hingis, who will transition from partner to rival come July 6.




“It is an honor for me to team up with Martina for Wimbledon. She is a true champion and I'm really looking forward to playing with her,” says Zvonareva. “I know it is tennis and I will actually have to face her on the other side of the net during Mylan WTT. I will give my best effort to challenge her, but for the next couple of weeks, I want to enjoy playing along the same side as her!”




Regardless of the outcome in London or during the Mylan WTT season, Zvonareva is embarking on this journey with a positive outlook. Having recently earned her Master’s degree in International Economic Relations, Zvonareva’s approach to the comeback is much like her attitude towards studying.




“The game of tennis taught me a lot of things such as patience, determination, discipline, concentration and many other things that are of great value to a good student,” says Zvonareva. “No matter how hard the process of achieving things whether in sports or at school, it is also a process of pleasure and happiness of doing it.”




Zvonareva and the Aces play their inaugural match on July 7 on the road against the San Diego Aviators, who also make their Mylan WTT debut.
