Rank The Russians

Below is a list of 8 Russian girls. It does not go in order of ranking, but in order of who I truly feel the 8 most talented Russian players are. Out of curiosity, how would you rank these girls, from best to worst? They are posted in order of the highest ranked to lowest ranked. Happy ranking.

Maria Sharapova
Rank: 4
Titles: 10 (2004 Wimbledon, Year-End Championships)


Nadia Petrova
Rank: 7
Titles: 1 (2005 Linz)


Elena Dementieva
Rank: 8
Titles: 5 (2006 Tokyo)


Anastasia Myskina
Rank: 11
Titles: 10 (2004 Roland Garros)


Svetlana Kuznetsova
Rank: 15
Titles: 5 (2004 US Open)


Elena Likhovtseva
Rank: 18
Titles: 3 (2 While Representing Russia)


Vera Zvonareva
Rank: 33
Titles: 3 (2004-2005 Memphis)


Elena Bovina
Rank: 64
Titles: 3 (2002 Warsaw)

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

Myskina (really talented girl when in a good mood)
Dementieva (a robot from the baseline but poor serve)
Kuznetsova (great FH but very error-prone)
Sharapova (good one dimensionnal game, her best quality is her mental)
Petrova (all round game but mentally weak)
Zvonareva (she's got game but a head case)
Bovina (great serve and volleys but soooomany injuries)
Likhovtseva (she did the best with her abilities, no weeknesses but no weapons at all too)

that's the way I see it!!

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

Rest of Russians are also very talented. I saw Bovina playing in Warsaw, once with Hantuchova, once with Clijsters and she was very impressive. I'm just not sure about her tactic on the court and her technical abilities but she must be good so she won couple of tournaments and outplayed many good players.

I don't have Kirilenko because she's so young and hasn't accomplished anything that anyone on this list has. Why not add Safina and Chakvetadze? Simple, they don't have the credentials of the other girls.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze
