Player of the week: Vera Zvonareva

Since she reached the Top Ten in 2004, continuous injuries have prevented Vera Zvonareva to play regularly and to stay in the top places of the WTA ranking, although she has collected remarkable performances when fit.
In this 2008 season, Vera looks at her best form and she has already achieved great results. Finalist in Hobart and Doha and semifinalist in Miami, she's one of the best players in this season so far. This week she has confirmed again her talent by reaching the final in the Tier I of Charleston. On her way to the final, Vera defeated 1st seed Jelena Jankovic, 4th seed Elena Dementieva and 6th seed Marion Bartoli. In the final she was a though opposition for nearly unbeatable Serena Williams, who needed to play her best and three sets to defeat her.

Now Vera is already at 14th place in the ranking but, as she was injured last year, she has no points to defend until the US Open, so if she can stay healthy she will keep on climbing and will be again in the Top Ten very soon.
