Former world No. 2 Vera Zvonareva is hitting again and says she has launched her comeback. The 29-year-old Russian was plagued with hip and shoulder injuries in 2012 and hasn't played an event since the 2012 Olympic Games in London, where she lost to Serena Williams in the fourth round.

Zvonareva recently posted pictures of herself helping dry off a court in Bradenton, Florida, where she trains. Because she has been off tour more than six months she will be able to use a protected ranking next season.
