Who, what GS title and when will be won by the current group of Russians?

Current top Russian GS contenders:

Myskina
Petrova
Dementiava
Zvonereva
Kuznetsova
Sharapova
Bovina
Safina
Krasnoroutskaya

My choice of these players might be Zvonereva, at Roland Garros in 2007.
She has an all court game, but might not be able to beat certain American players in London or New York before then or until they retire.

Myskina does not seem to lead me to believe that she will hold up physically, Dementieve will not hold up mentally and Sharpie is falling fast in the rankings to be a real possible Russian GS winner.

Yes, I intentionally omitted Ann K's. name from the above list.

it could come sooner than later. but only at RG. vera is a very good clay court player and she has some very good wins on the red clay at RG. both williams sisters have just come back from injury and are also vulnerable sometimes in the early rounds at RG. now obviously im not saying that zvonareva is a fav for the tournament but if a couple of upsets do occur then she could become a player to watch out for in the draw. she beat venus last year (albeit venus wasnt playing her very best) and she did take serena to 3 sets at RG the year before i think. in saying this the belgians could be even tougher than the williams sisters, as for them well i cant be bothered saying anything coz even with their injuries and viruses they will still probably get through.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Lana is a great contender in every surface ... except I doubt the Aussie will ever be with Svetlana

Her great sucess at Wimby and awesome results on hardcourts she hasnt played on clay this year YET so we have to wait
- - - - - - -
Myskina will always be in list...best Russian yet excluding Zverva because she is technically from Belarus
- - - - - - -
Dementieva .... Got Serve?
- - - - - - -
Petrova ... Has Serve! Her serve will really put her through in GS especially on clay
- - - - - - -
Zvonareva can make it .. Vera has everything on her but nothing in her head ... we'll see
- - - - - - -
Sharapova ...
- - - - - - -
Bovina needs to stop trying the Hantuchova diet and work .. Daniela is atleast trying to come back
- - - - - - -
Safina is still young and her break out will be at RG if any
- - - - - - -
Lina...Lina...Lina Krasnoroutskaya is great...has talent but will she use it?

fuck.

The 2 best of the "Soviettes" are a few years away, IMO: 15 y.o. (officially UKR) Viktoria Kutuzova and 14 y.o. Alisa Kleybanova. And I Wouldn't Write off Sharky So Soon.

Well, it looks like my timetable may be correct, but the the winners are "unknown" as of now.

I wouldn't bet more than $5 on Sharpie winning a GS title before that time, or after either.

jen won three slams with a dodgy serve, sometimes circumstances alighn themselves right and a player finds themselves in a position to win a very unlikely event, Justine won USO, Serena the French the year before even if their games weren't particularly overwhelming on that surface, there is always injuries, early upsets that make a path easier for aplayer to get in a scoop a slam. Dementieva might be inspired one of these days and win a slam.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
