Zvonareva goes down in WTA finals

Zvonareva goes down in WTA finals
Russian tennis star Vera Zvonareva has failed to win the biggest match of her career, losing to Venus Williams in the final of the season-ending WTA Championships in Doha.

It had been a fine effort by the Russian just to get to this far and she made a promising start when she took the opening set on a tie-break.

However, Williams destroyed Zvonareva’s serve in the second set, winning 6-0. The American pressed further, completing the third and final set 6-2, ending Zvonareva’s chance at the WTA title.
