Em no...I just think Svetlana is more talented.

I choose Kuznetsova...Closely followed by Myskina.

After watching Sveta @ the FO, I'd have to say Nadya.

Sveta is the more talented in my opinion but she doesn't use her talent fully because she's weak mentally and she doesn't always play smart.

I'd have to say Kuznetsova... she's the most talented, and has shown some mental toughness to back it up (though also with some hiccups)

HERE ARE MY thoughts!

The best Russian who trained outside of Russia, is definitley Svetlana Kuznetsova ... Petrova, while she is highly talented think that she lacks variety.

The best Russian who trained inside of Russia, is Anastasia Myskina. While her mental toughness is lacking, she is still a better player than Dementieva in terms of 'completeness' in the game.

LET'S GO HINGIS ... US FANS WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU (NO MATTER WHAT)! -
WINNER OF ROME + KOLKATA 2006 and TOKYO 2007


MYSKINA ... THE TENNIS WORLD NEEDS YOU - PLEASE JUST COME BACK ALREADY!!! THE WTA NEEDS SOME QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT HAHA


BEST OF LUCK ALSO TO CHAKVETADZE ... THE FUTURE OF WOMENS TENNIS

petrova just hasn't performed at the slams like the others in the poll. kuznetsova has an RG final and a slam win at the us open. dementieva has 2 slam finals, myskina has won a slam. petrova's best at a slam is a SF. she's had a great run lately, and i think she's probably the best russian on clay (even though she lost 1st round at RG this year).

if you go on slams, kuznetsova has equalled the best performance of petrova and myskina at AO (QF) and bettered dementieva's best. at RG she's done better than petrova, equalled dementieva and come a match win short of myskina. at wimbledon she's equalled myskina and petrova and bettered dementieva and at the us open she's done better than all of them by winning in 2004. so on the big stage which generally is where the top players like to shine, kuznetsova has performed better than any of the other 3 on this poll overall.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.
