Player history

One of five Russians to rank in Top 2 (also Myskina, Sharapova, Zvonareva, Safina), Svetlana Kuznetsova was ranked continuously in Top 20 from March 1, 2004 to July 11, 2010 (including over four years ranked continuously in Top 10 – April 2006 to June 2010).

She is a two‐time Grand Slam champion, winning at 2004 US Open (d. Dementieva in F) and 2009 Roland Garros, when she defeated No.2 Serena Williams in the quarter-finals and No.1 Safina in the title-match, becoming the most recent of the nine players to defeat the World No.1 and No.2 at the same Grand Slam.

She was also a two‐time Grand Slam finalist, at Roland Garros in 2006 and 2007 US Open (losing both times to Henin).

At 2011 Australian Open, played her part in setting the record for the longest women's match at a Slam, eventually succumbing to Schiavone in 4 hours and 44 minutes.

In 2016 she returned to the Top 10 (at No.10) for first time since May 2010 and won two singles titles in 2016, at Sydney (d. Puig in F) and Moscow (d. Gavrilova in F). Consequently she secured her sixth appearance at WTA Finals, where she qualified for SF for the first time (l. Cibulkova); in five previous appearances (2004, 2006‐09), had never progressed beyond group stage. Her gap of six years between WTA Finals (2009 to 2016) was most since Capriati and Frazier’s seven year gaps (both from 1992‐2000).

Kuznetsova started her 2017 campaign celebrating her 600th match win (all levels) in Brisbane. She lost in Indian Wells her 40th career final to Vesnina, before reaching the quarter-finals for first time in a decade at Wimbledon (l. eventual champion V.Williams in 2007), where she lost in straight sets to eventual champion Muguruza. At Us Open, Kuznetsova played her 60th Grand Slam main draw (2r exit) and finished the season surpassing $24million in career prize money.
