Townsend, who just had her breakthrough tournament at Roland Garros - playing in her first Grand Slam main draw, she made it all the way to the third round - was thrilled with the news of the wildcard.

It could be even more special for Zvonareva. A former World No.2 and two-time Grand Slam finalist, including right here in 2010, the Russian missed almost a year and a half of action between 2012 and 2014 due to illness and a shoulder injury, and has been trying to work her way back up this year.
Zvonareva has also been named as one of the doubles wildcard pairs alongside Martina Hingis.
