its amazing how the Russinas seem to piss so many off!!
Well its true that the Russians havent burned a trail so far ,but in terms of dominating with their presence ,they ar every much still here! US tennis is dead in the water at the mo it seems with Dav retiring and Cappy cant be far behind ,the WS are very much alive and kicking and will always be serious contenders for a few years yet ,although I expect retirement sooner rather than later.
The Russians have many many players ,not just the current top ones , but many new up and comming players ,so they aint going anywhere ,and they will be a controlling force for some time ,the Belgians are obviously going to be up top ,but where are the others? there aint any ! no new Americans ,no new Beglians ,just Russians.
I dont know what the Russians are doing right ,but we could use it here in the uk thats for sure ,and while the Russians are not always technically perfect ,they sure have sould and fight like hell and for that i admire them a lot ,they are colorful and long may they continue!
Lets face it they had a sucessful space program with a budget of $19.99 and kept the Mir aloft with duct tape and glue for many years! whilst the more advanced nations with mega budgets just failed miserably ,ya gotta love em!!
