(12) Nadia Petrova
- DOB: 08/06/1982
- Nationality: RUS
- Became Pro: 1999
- Height: 1.78
'Miss Consistency', Petrova is a seasoned campaigner on the WTA Tour and has been a regular inside the world's top 20 for a number of years.
However, the 28-year-old has rarely posed a serious Grand Slam title challenge and with plenty of youth and talent coming through the ranks, you have to wonder if she's running out of time to truly make a name for herself.
Although generally regarded to be more comfortable on clay, Petrova has a respectable track record at Wimbledon having reached two quarter-finals in her last four visits.
She heads to SW19 in decent form having powered past Venus Williams en route to the French Open quarter-finals in Paris.
Injury is always a worry for the Russian. However, if fit and firing, she is more than capable of claiming the famous trophy.
