Re: Between Dementieva and Myskina, who will continue to be a top player next year?
Myskina has been replaced by Chakvetadze in my book.
Myskina's shots are becoming extremely predictable.
The rule to be in the top 10 in this era is, beat enough top Russians consistently and you're there.
Myskina has lost her dominance of the top Russians and I don't see her getting it back.
Dementieva knows what she has to do but at this time in her career, the WTA has become her own personal hell.
Where she needs to perform well, she underperforms but she's been in the top 10 the longest of any player other than Mauresmo.
If she leaves the top ten though, I don't see her coming back.
I think practicing in NYC will help and I think we could actually see a different Dementieva by Janurary.
