8th consecutive russian title.

most been said already here:
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.p...light=russians

4th all russian final of the year. seems natural that the two top title winners of the year (russian, that is) battle away for this one.
preview of the YEC? perhaps.
also to be noticed - Nadia's 3rd final consecutivly (sttutgart, moscow and linz) sharapova's 3rd (USopen, Zurich, Linz) with a withdrawel at Moscow QF.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Nadia's 3rd consecutive final, and she won 4 of 5 tournaments before her injury this spring

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

Re: 8th consecutive russian title.

wow, what a year for both. But since it's a Tier II, Maria won't win. She only likes the big titles

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

It isn't going to change in the near future, either. Belarus defeated Russia in the final of the Junior Fed Cup. There's another whole generation waiting in the wings.

And Maria is still a teenager herself.

And as far as US tennis is concerned ... forget it. Stick a fork in it, it's done.

it's the quality and the versitality that they (potentially) bring that counts.
most of them (as most tennis players in general) bring a very simular, if not carbon copy of the same game type - but checking the top100 is enough to prove the huge differences between the bolletteri tennis of sharapova, to the the huge hitting kuznetsova, the extreme grip of dushevina, the floaty spon of vesnina, the speedy reach of dementieva, the countering myskina or the huge serving bovina - not to mention krasnoroutskaya - perhaps the most capable of them ever, though sadly out of tennis.
as long as such a high percentage of thier top players are bringing that kind of differences between them, all with high success to it, than i'm pleased, and don't care that thier russian, except the fact that bieng russian means you put your whole heart in it and do it to your max, with the full love and care and even too much emotion. i appreciate it, i adore it - the moment i'll get the impression they are simply jamming it all up, i'll quit my obssesion with them - so far, even the few youngsters i've seen (kulikova, orlova, poltroskaya) have brought completly different games.
they are not immatating basics, they are trying to improve it.
it may cost us in the meanwhile in other nations at the top - but it is providing us with great tennis there. and tomorrow, the final is going to be a whooping performance of two of the greatest they've produced.

Re: 8th consecutive russian title.

if you look at it they have 7 in the top 20 - with two more closing. Half the top 10 is Russian with at least another two who wouldn't look out of place. The best or possibly now second best Russian isn't even in the top 10 at the moment. The top 10 has three perpetually injured non-Russian players, the top 5 has majority Russian presence and the number 1 may soon be Russian. Its hardly surprising they are winning a lot?
