Re: Vera Zvonareva rise to the top cheering thread, Vol 3
In 2010 Lena made the Paris SF and had to retire and missed Wimbledon. She had 4 match points in NYC vs Stosur, who won NY the next year
She was still at the top and passed on millions and the chance at a major and #1 then
But its what felt right to her, I'm not saying its bad. It shows she didnt love being a touring pro like a lot of these players who are in their mid 30s and still playing
Vera is not even making the big money now. She was in the singles finals of Wimbledon & NYC in 2010, and that pays very well. Also a top doubles player then and in singles finals of Rogers Cup & Beijing. Vera beat Jankovic, Azarenka and Clijsters at the YEC & gave that speech when Lena retired
But she must really love it to be at all these events as a mom
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
