of Russia will be aiming to make a great run this summer at the US Open in Flushing Meadows New York and perhaps beat some of the best players in the world.
The Russian took the world number 1 Serena Williams to 3 sets in the 4th round of the French Open in Paris earlier this year.
Last year Serena reached the Semi Finals of the US Open in New York but she was beaten in straight sets by the eventual champion Kim Clijsters.
Serena last won the US Open back in 2008 when she beat Jelena Jankovic of Serbia in the final in straight sets.
Serena however has been the form player in 2010, having won her 5th Australian Open title in Melbourne as well as her 4th Wimbledon title in London.
The world number 1 and her sister Venus are currently ranked number 1 in the world in doubles also.
