Of all the players currently playing on the circuit, Svetlana Kuznetsova is one of the most decorated in both Singles and Doubles.

As well as having lifted four Grand Slam trophies (two in Singles and two in Doubles), the Russian ace also has 20 singles titles to her credit.

In 2002 she won her first two WTA titles – Helsinki and Bali – and aged 19 was crowned 2004 US Open champion by beating compatriot Elena Dementieva in the final.

She reached another Grand Slam final, the 2006 French Open, but was defeated by Justine Henin. In 2007 the Belgian rained on Kuznetsova’s parade yet again, this time preventing her from lifting the US Open title for a second time. A
