Re: When are the other Russian girls going to step up
When were any of the other Russian girls ever going to be better than Maria? Myskina's considered a fluke and I don't even know what Kuznetsova is considered as; I just know most people don't like her. Dementieva was briefly looked at as a potential slam champion/"it" girl in 2000/2001 but of course nothing happened, and Petrova happened to have a hot six months that has proved to be a complete paradox in her career and will never be reproduced.
The others, eh. Whatever. I'm more interested in when ANY girl is going to step up to Maria, not necessarily a Russian.
