Awarded Vera Zvonareva aims to raise Russia’s competitiveness through sport


Vera Zvonareva wins award in home Russia

World No.2 Vera Zvonareva received the Best Tennis Player award in her hometown of Moscow, Russia, and eagerly shared her excitement on Twitter.

I got an award from the hands of the chief of the Presidential Administration of Russia, Sergey Naryshkin!

It is an honor for me to be recognized in my home country! Thank u so much!!!

In addition, we learned that Zvonareva plans to finish her studies next year and get a degree in International Economics. The topic of her thesis is interesting, as she blended her career of an athlete with economics: Sport as an Instrument in Raising Russia’s Competitiveness in the World.

  1. Good to see her being rewarded for a great year 🙂 Finished #2 without any of the fanfares that Caro was getting, made the final of 2 slams too.

    Hope she has a similar run of success in 2011.
