Dushevina, 22, is best known for her status as a former Wimbledon junior champion. She beat Maria Sharapova to win the girls’ title at the All England Club in 2002. Prior to Sunday’s breakthrough, she had reached WTA finals at Eastbourne in 2005 and Stockholm in 2007 and 2008, losing on each occasion.
