After Myskina, Sharapova is THE best Russian

No doubt, Myskina is the best Russian, but after that, Maria is the best, IMO.

Dementieva--Maria has a MUCH better serve, and I think competitor
Petrova--Maria seems to have better focuse
Kuznetsova--Over hyped, IMO. Her wins over JHH and Vee this year were more what JHH and Vee did (or didn't) do in the match.
Vera--I think today showed that Maria is much more consistent, and has a better serve

Masha hits the ball with more fluidity IMO, also Kuzzie isn't hyped

how dare you take that win away from Kuznetsova, she even took Myskina, yer best russian 6-4 in the 3rd set. And Sharapova is still young, she might end up like Daniela, or just like the Williams...

I think right now Kuznetsova is a much better player then Sharapova.

And I think Kuznetsova will become Russian #1 at some point.

As for Masha, she lost to Myskina twice, and to Kuznetsova once. So I think she still has a quite long way to catch up with them.

I still have a great deal of respect for Dani - after all Sharapova lost a match to her at Tokyo this year.

And I really wish both Dani and Jelena D. would come back strongly on the Tour ASAP.

Right now Kuznetsova is better than Sharapova. Kuznetsova is playing like the #1 Russian lately.

I hope so too, they should jump on Martina's so called train before it leaves them behind.

Myskina is by far the best, followed by Kuznetsova

It's not Svetlana's fault Venus and Justine didn't play well... and it's not like Svetlana didn't have a say in it at all. They simply weren't good enough to beat her on those days

I like Maria, but IMO at the moment Svetlana is better

there's no way that sveta is overhyped...IMHO she's the most underrated russian because she's not as pretty as the other russian girls...

Well, though I love to watch Myskinas game, I also think that Kuznetsova will be the best russian very soon. Well we gonna see when they match up in the 4th round again (that if Myskina and Kuznetsova both win their matches, which I am pretty sure of)...

I think We are a bit quick to judge which Russian is better than another, sometimes after one match We decide that one is more consistent, as in Mashsa /Vera yesterday, when really they have played twice,with one win each. Nastya/Vera, played once with easy win to Vera, but that dosen't mean much on one match,Sveta going like a train at the moment,but Nastya and elena D. are still highest on the rankings at present, I think We have to wait till the end of the season or even half way through the next to see how they are running

In the race to L.A., Sveta is #5, and Maria is #28. They both have been healthy this year.
I don't see any reason for Maria to be mentioned with Sveta at this point of their careers.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

There's nothing to discuss, Sveta have been better then Masha all year long!
And even if Sveta's wins over Justine & Venus are not worthy (which I completely not agree with), Masha doesn't have even those!

I like Masha, but Sveta is way better at this point!
