Congratulations to Rett supporter and Tennis star, Vera Zvonareva

IRSF would like to Congratulate Rett supporter and Tennis star, Vera Zvonareva, for making it to the U.S. Open Finals this past weekend. 2010 Wimbledon finalist, Vera Zvonareva, was defeated by Kim Clijsters who successfully defended her title. Both players won great semifinal matches to get there. Zvonareva stunned finals favorite Caroline Wozniacki and Kaia Kanepi earlier in the tournament to earn her place in the Finals on Saturday. Though Vera was defeated in the Finals, she played her heart out to make it as far as she did.

Vera, an avid Rett syndrome supporter, attended a special Meet and Greet with a few local girls with Rett syndrome earlier this summer during her time here while competing in the Western Southern Financial Group Masters and Women's Open.

Zvonareva serves as an international ambassador for Rett syndrome and spreads awareness around the world when she travels to tournaments. She became familiar with Rett syndrome after her best friend's daughter was diagnosed.
