An all Russian Grand-Slam? Will a Russian player win the Australian Open?

The last three Grand Slams have been won by a Russian player. Myskina won the French Open, Sharapova Wimbledon and Kusnetzova U.S. Open. Will it be a fourth? What do you think?

i think sharapova will win the oz open imo, she can beat anyone.
mauresmo is also a serious favourite but she can't manage to play her best in grand slam under stress. i think she doesn't like her status of favourite.

Maria Sharapova
Krunic~~ Ivanovic ~~ Jovanovski ~~ Stojanovic~Jorovic
Putintseva~~Robson ~~Hingis~~ Svitolina ~~ Pavlyuchenkova~~ Rybarikova~~ Halep~~Pervak~~Kulichkova~~Kirilenko~~Mladenovic
Bencic~~Voegele~~Jankovic~~Zvonareva~~Karolina Pliskova ~~Krystina Pliskova

Even IF a Russian player wins the AO - what has that to do with a "Grand Slam"?

As far as I know, it's a "Grand Slam" (in a calendar year or not) to win all four majors in a row.

Oizo probably means to win 4 consecutive GS's.

I hope another Russian doesnt win a GS. Tennis was not exciting as previous years...the Belgians domination was more exciting than that, same with the WS, and then back in the Hingis/Davenport/upcoming Williams' era that included Monica too.

At least the Russian's had THREE different GS winners. The WS's domination made it TWO not THREE, same with the Belgian domination.
