Exhibition In Moscow: Dushevina's Paintings
Vera Dushevina

MOSCOW, Russia - Vera Dushevina may be known for her groundstrokes on the court, but she also has some mean brushstrokes on the canvas - and last month the Russian put her work on display in the Russian capital of Moscow at a special exhibition that was attended by some very special guests.

Dushevina started the paintings seven years ago. "I had the idea of an exhibition four years ago, but then realized I didn't have enough paintings - but it was my dream, and I knew it was in my hands, so I just kept painting. I really enjoy it. I'd like to thank all my friends and family for their support in all of this!"

Many of Dushevina's paintings decorate her home, the homes of her friends and family, and one was even given to charity - and that isn't the only sharing going on, as fellow Russian stars Marat Safin, Dinara Safina, Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Anastasia Myskina were among those sharing the moment with her.

We at wtatennis.com have prepared two galleries of Dushevina's paintings - the first image below goes to the first gallery, the second image to the second.
