I don't see Myskina and Dementieva being successful as her fans might think they will, there are plenty of other russians in the making of being quite potential players and even if the Williams era has finished, they are still a threat more than them and I believe that, at least Serena, will win another slam. You can't forget the belgians, especially Justine who will come back fired up for some titles.
Dementieva is a great baseline player with excellent shots, but she will not go further than she already has with that serve, especially with players as agressive as Sharapova, Venus, Serena and Kuznetsova all around.
