You'd think that, by now, Vera Zvonareva would be afraid to set foot (literally) in Charleston, but she has entered the 2010 Family Circle Cup. At last year's event, she took a nasty fall that resulted in a serious ankle injury. A couple of years before, she sustained a serious wrist injury in Charleston. Fortunately for fans, Zvonareva is willing to give it another go.
Zvonareva was a finalist in 2008, losing to Serena Williams at the tournament's 25th anniversary.
The world number 9 joins Melanie Oudin, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Serena Williams, and Caroline Wozniacki, who have already signed up for the tournament.
