Thirty-one-year-old Vera Zvonareva, who played her last WTA tournament in April 2015, broke her social media silence by announcing that she’s now a wife and a mother.
Dear friends! Over the past couple of years I wasn’t posting much due to lots of injuries and inability to compete… but there is more to life than just sports (even though I love sports!). No matter what, this year is a very fruitful year for me… I became a wife and a mother! Having family feels amazing! But no matter what, sport will always play a huge part in my life! Therefore, see you on Eurosport channel soon, where I will try to take a commentator’s role during this year’s US Open!
The winner of 12 WTA singles titles and two-time Grand Slam finalist is now retired, but she’ll apparently stay around tennis by commentating on the sports channel. Let me remind you that Zvonareva has plenty of career options, as besides being a world-class athlete, she managed to obtain two degrees: one from Russian State Academy of Physical Education and one in international economic relations at Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation in Moscow.
Congratulations, Vera! What a lovely addition to my WTA Players and their Love Partners page.
