So who's the best Russian right now

There's no clear person who's better than the rest. Sharapova, Myskina and Kuznetsova are all a bit off form but i think Kuznetsova is improving and saying that Lena and Petrova are both doing well with Lena winning her first Tier 1 and Nadia beating Mauresmo to win Doha. I personally think its Lena. Not just because she's my fave but against any of the Russian's right now she would win. So what do you's all think

Grassonkova.

ditto.
she's more consistent than the others.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Maria is waaay ahead of the pack right now, followed by Nadia (who could be just as good if not better once her head gets sorted out), Svetlana (inconsistent), Elena D (same here... 1st round AO to Tokyo champ... go figure...), Anya might climb back up the list since her Mom's better now

Depends how you measure it ,Talent wise its Elena ,she has more talent than the rest put together ,Consistancy wise its Maria ,Myskina is still way off form and Sveta is better but still lacking ,Petrova is doing well ,But I still wouldnt bet on her to win in a big tourny against a top player..

Soo its hard to say for sure ,its between Elena and Maria ,Maria has the better records for consistancy but apart from one pissy Tier three with no one in it ,since June shes had fuck all worth mentioning .ELena is a way better athlete and can do more wtuff with her shots ,see her demolition in Hinigis at Tokyo ,but of course shes on and off and the service ,whilst improved is always an unknown..

Well as she is my huge fave I will say Elena ,simply cos I think she has more Talent ,but its close and can always change anytime....

I have lots and lots and lots of favourite Russian players. Like Elena Dementieva. I wish I was her boyfriend. Does she got one?

One time, a few weeks ago I dreamn't that I was dating Elena and we attended a fiesta.

Elena was dressed in white cotton halter top, a little plaid mini-skirt and those strappy high-heel sandals. She was beautiful as ever. I was slightly subborn I didn't want to dress up at all, but I was wearing a pair of blue jeans and a snap-up denim shirt with cut-off type sleeves that showed off my strong sexy arms and even matched the indigo blue of my eyes.

I got out of the truck I was driving (I can't drive so this was odd) and I walked toward Elena like a county outlaw. I was her very own extra sexy rebel without a cause, more than fashionably late and not remotely dressed for the occasion.

Do you want to here the rest? Maybe you don't?

How is sharapova off-form?

BTW, I'd definitely say Masha. She's a lot more consistent, and, when at her best, can destroy the rest.
