Natasha Zvereva

Natasha Zvereva, or Zverava, (born Natalla Marataŭna Zvierava; Belarusian: Наталля Маратаўна Зверава; 16 April 1971) is a former tennis player from Belarus. Zvereva was the first major athlete in the Soviet Union to demand publicly that she should be able to keep her tournament earnings. The team of Zvereva and Gigi Fernández won more women's doubles titles and Grand Slam women's doubles championships than any other team since the team of Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver. Navratilova, speaking of the abilities of the two teams, said that she and Shriver were better, but "We were power. They are finesse. It would have been close."

Zvereva is currently the captain of the Belarusian Fed Cup team. On 12 July 2010, Zvereva was inducted in the International Tennis Hall of Fame alongside Fernandez.
