Former world No. 2 receives wild card into New Haven qualifying.
Welcome back to the US Open Series, Vera Zvonareva.

Zvonareva won the ITF tournament in Sharm-El-Sheikh, Egypt last month and shared this image from the event on Instagram.

The 32-year-old Russian beat Sadafmoh Tolibova and Eva Aleksandrova reaching the final round of qualifying in last month’s ITF event in Astana, Kazakhstan, but withdrew.

Earlier in her career, Zvonareva played some of her most dynamic tennis on North American hard courts.

The 2006 US Open doubles champion reached the Montreal final in 2010 losing to Caroline Wozniacki. Zvonareva avenged that defeat beating Wozniacki weeks later to advance to the US Open final where she fell to Kim Clijsters.

A year ago, Zvonareva married and became a mom.

Watch: Best Monkey Tennis Player Ever?

Meet Riki, a primate prime-time tennis player.


Tennis is a skill sport demanding deep concentration without much room for monkey business.

Until now.

Watch: Best Tweets of Mid-Week

Meet Japanese monkey, Riki, who plays tennis daily and shows some serious skills in his new video.

Japanese tennis commentator Yoshiyasu Yoshizaki is Riki’s primary playing partner.

The pair create a formidable doubles team.

Watch Riki show some serious net skills almost as lethal as his Byran brothers-inspired chest bumb landed with jolting MMA force.

Riki, who breaks up the repetition of daily practice scanning his text messages, has also mastered the victor’s post-match ritual of signing the camera lens.
