Long time gone

This Wimbledon marks the return of a couple of players most of us have missed for a while. Vera Zvonareva is back, after enduring a nasty fall in Charleston and injuring her ankle. Last year, Zvonareva was taken out in the second round by grass expert Tamarine Tanasugarn, who went on to remove Jelena Jankovic from the tournament, also.

Returning after a long injury break is Katarina Srebotnik, who lost in the first round of Wimbledon last year to Julia Goerges, a player who is 2-0 against her. Srebotnik has been off of the tour all season with an Achilles injury.

And though she is not as well known as the others, it's also nice to see Tatiana Perebynis's name in the Wimbledon draw. Perebynis has been out all season with a back injury.
