Radwańska and Zvonareva following the 2011 Pan Pacific Open final.

Zvonareva has a rivalry with Polish player Agnieszka Radwańska,[53][54] which began in 2007. Radwańska leads the series 4–2.[55] Throughout their meetings, Radwańska has matched Zvonareva's pace and movements around the court.[56] Zvonareva is considered the more powerful of the two, with Radwańska noted as more focused at times,[56][57] utilizing what Sports Illustrated's Courtney Nguyen dubbed "selective aggression" during the pair's 2011 matches.[58] At the 2007 Kremlin Cup, Zvonareva won their first meeting in straight sets. The two did not play again until the 2011 season, when Radwańska won four of their five matches, including the finals of the Mercury Insurance Open and the Pan Pacific Open. Their final meeting of 2011 was an acclaimed match at the WTA Championships.[59][60] In the third set, Zvonareva served for the match while leading 5–3. However, Radwańska saved three match points and went on to win 1–6, 6–2, 7–5. The victory marked Radwańska's fourth straight win against Zvonareva, whom she described as "very consistent and always tough to beat."[61] Zvonareva vs. Clijsters[edit] Zvonareva and Kim Clijsters
Kim Clijsters
first played each other in 2002. Clijsters led their head-to-head 7–3.[62] Prior to her first retirement in 2007, Clijsters won all five of her matches with Zvonareva. The women met again in 2010, with Zvonareva winning three of their four matches—the exception being the US Open final. Zvonareva's first victory against Clijsters came at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships. Their only match of 2011 was won by Clijsters at the Australian Open. At Wimbledon 2012 she retired after the second set against Clijsters for medical reasons.[citation needed] Zvonareva vs. Stosur[edit] Zvonareva has a 2–8 head-to-head record against Samantha Stosur, last beating Stosur at Wimbledon in 2004. Since then, Stosur has won eight consecutive meetings, with Zvonareva only winning three sets in the eight losses.[63] Zvonareva has never lost to any other player eight times in a row.[64] Stosur puts heavy topspin onto the ball, which has proven detrimental to Zvonareva's ball-striking ability.[64] Stosur's style has also affected Zvonareva's ability to predict where Stosur is going to place the ball when she runs around her backhand to hit her forehand inside out.[65] Personal life[edit] In 2007, Zvonareva graduated from the Russian State University of Physical Education with a degree in Physical Education. She studied for a second degree in international economic relations at the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Moscow.[1] On 23 August 2016, Zvonareva announced her marriage.[66] Her daughter Evelina was born in 2016.[67] Career statistics[edit] Main article: Vera Zvonareva
