i think the russians will be in the mix at the tier 1 and 2 events and also in the slams but the williams sisters, belgians, mauresmo, davenport and capriati are all in the mix as well. the russians have got the better of them at the slams for the moment and as much as i would like for the russians to win all the top tournaments i think that the other top players will get in there as well. however there are a number of russians that havent quite made the breakthrough that myskina, sharapova, kuznetsova and dementieva have and they are very talented, players like zvonareva, petrova, bovina. they have games to go far in these big tournaments so if they pick their games up like the others have then we may well see many all russian finals in the top events. and within a couple of years there should be more russians at the top or nearing the top ie eg douchevina, kirilenko, safina, lina k and maybe a couple of others.
but atm i dont think the tour will be completely dominated by the russians.
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.
