The Common Thing With Russian Players(WTA and ATP)!
They are simply awesome from the baseline! Myskina, Dementieva, Kuznetsova, Petrova, Sharapova, Bovina, Zvonareva are all excellent baseliner.
On the men side, Safin, Kafelnikov, Davydenko, Youzhny, Andreev are just fantastic off the ground.
Some of them have something to go with that...
Myskina, Dementieva, Davydenko, Youzhny and Andreev move so amazingly well
Petrova, Sharapova, Bovina, Safin are great servers
Kuznetsova and Kefelnikov can do anything on the court(volley, serve well)
But everything is centered around their amazing baseline play!
