Maria the new Russian #1?

If I'm not wrong, she's currently #3 while Myskina's #4.

that'll only last for a few weeks
Nastya will regain her status!

IF Maria Sharapova = Masha
& Maria Kirilenko = Makiri
THEN...
Lindsay Davenport = Linda
Anastasia Myskina = Amy
Conchita Martinez = Coma
Shahar Peer = Shape
Alicia Molik = Almo
Sofia Arvidsson = Soar
Maria Vento Kabchi = Maven
Magdalena Maleeva = Mama
Rennae Stubbs = Rest
Anne Keothavong = Anke
Tamarine Tanasugarn = Tata

You are correct!

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Maria deserves to be ahead of Nastya, she does better under pressure.

Masha won't be there too long. A few weeks maybe.

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

Maria has a much better game than myskina, myskina is overrated imo, she had the french open win which shot her up the rankings, since then she has done nothing spectacular. Maria deserves to be the Russian no.1 cos at the minute she is better than the rest.

To be fair, Sharapova deserves to be ranked higher then Myskina. She's played better in big matches. Myskina is a craftier player, but Sharapova is a better match player.

Well done Masha. The other russians will probably use the excuse that she aint a real russian.

Good for Masha..

Hopefully being the 2nd Russian player will motivate Nastya more in the future...

She should be more focus and more consistent...
