The elegant Russian was the nearly woman of women's tennis last year, losing in the final at the French Open and the U.S. Open, on both occasions to compatriots.

Moves well and can deliver clean winners off both flanks at will, but has to work doubly hard to win her own serve which at times can be embarrassingly ordinary.
