Shvedova went through qualifying to reach the main draw.  This was her second time in the Roland Garros quarterfinals.  Though Russian born, she has represented Kazakhstan since 2008.  She is far more accomplished as a doubles player, having won both Wimbledon and the US Open in 2010 with her partner Vania King (USA).
