She represented the U.S. in the Chess Olympiads of 2004, 2006, and 2008. The Americans won the team silver in 2004, their highest finish ever. Zatonskih won the United States Women's Chess Championship in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2011. In 2008, she beat the defending U.S. Women's Champion, Irina Krush, by a single second under time control, a moment that has been widely viewed on the Internet because of Krush's reaction of smacking her king across the room in anger.

She is married to Latvian-born Grandmaster Daniel Fridman.
