Not one of them will be a four time grand slam champ... and they are about the same age as someone else I know...

You're kidding, right?

Myskina and Dementieva are a year younger than Venus and one just won her first Slam last year and the other has yet to do so (though she did win a silver medal at the 2000 Olympics). They better hop their best years are ahead of them.

Not only that, put the top four Russians together and they still don't have as many titles as Venus. Or Serena.

Which is to say that Venus's best years are ahead of her too right? I mean...she has more way more...and only a year older...

Stupid "should they retire?" threads. YES. All players above 20, should consider a career in gardening.

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

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.

Exactly...Popova and Sveta are the only two on the scene right now that will be multiple slam winners...

LOL.these threads always cause drama. I don't Myskina and Dementieva have a lot of slams left in them. I hope ELena can pull a Novotna and win a slam before she retires. Myskina might have another slam if she's lucky and has a good draw. Vera? I like her but she will never improve much. Venus might have one last slam left. I just cant see her raising her game.
Kuznetsova and Sharapova have the best prospects. And dont forget the new girls vaidisova ,ivanovic.etc

Sveta is 19, Maria is 17, and many, many more are coming onto the tour.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
