Who will have the better clay court season, Myskina or Dementieva

I think Myskina is still working the kinks out of her game and will return to form around the time of the Italian Open. Dementieva is already in form, and may peak too early for Roland Garros. Any thoughts on these two ladies who eliminated the competition last year at the crown jewel of the claycourt season...

Anastasia might not enter in a tourney before RG.
Who will have a better RG it would be more fair to ask. But then again it depends on the draw.
Maybe a clash would give us the answer.

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

Dementieva has historically performed better on clay compared to Myskina. However Myskina won RG.

Just based on 2005 form, I'd give a big edge to Elena.

In some ways, Elena not winning Charleston may be a blessing in disguise, as she could peak too early.

Elena Dementieva AFR

myskina just needs one good run to defend her crown.
dmentieva needs to streak them together again if she wants to try out for a slam for a third time in 12 months.
we'll judge by the fed-cup scores (on clay) and the next tournies.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Dementieva is more consistent than Myskina<who has not played well so far>
I believe Dementieva will do well on clay especially at FO.

Dementieva, because she'll probably reach a QF.

Traits Gandhi considered the most spiritually perilous to humanity.
*Wealth without Work * Pleasure without Conscience

*Science without Humanity *Knowledge without Character

*Politics without Principle *Commerce without Morality

*Worship without Sacrifice
