Well, I'd say it's boring. But I also should say that I don't care as it won't last long, at least not in the top tournaments. Kim and Justine are in their way back to the top and I'm sure Molik and Venus can join the TOP10 permanently. And there's Capriati when she comes back (if she does) and up-and-comers such as Ivanovic, Vaidisova, Golovin and veterans such as Schnyder. I think they're trouble for Myskina, Dementieva, Kuznetsova, Zvonareva, Petrova and Bovina. Not really to Sharapova though.

There's not been so many Russians in Berlin since the wall came down!

Anyway, if they play exciting tennis - what better?

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

It will be extremely boring for ME as I dt really like them .
Myskina is ok but the others I cdnot care less (even if I dt hate them either )...

I hope Conchi and Mary can walk through the draw upsetting one or two of the Russians

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Last year no Russian got past the quarters.
And all the top Russians were there.
It's just a prep, for a much bigger event.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

1) Sharapova
2) Dementieva
3) Myskina
4) Kuznetsova
5) Zvonareva
6) Petrova
7) Schnyder
8) Bovina

hmmm....dont really care. the novelty has already worn off. and lets face it, petrova, bovina, zvonareva, myskina, dementieva and kuznetsova wont win the title. here's why



2) Dementieva - its a tier 1
3) Myskina - poor form
4) Kuznetsova - poor form
5) Zvonareva - please. head case and poor form (dammit!i want her to win!)
6) Petrova - title?i doubt it
8) Bovina - too many top players in the field.

i would be cool if 4 managed to make it to the semis. (not cool for me, but cool for women's tennis) because that way, we'll know that they're actually still around and not just eye-candy.
