When are the other Russian girls going to step up

and challenge Sharapova? Aren't they tired of Maria embarrassing them all the time? No, let me say humiliating them? Seems none of them can challenge her, or they are afraid to. They can put up a fight against other players, and fold like a deck of cards versus Maria. Maria seems to take pleasure in thier demolition. It's almost like she has to prove over and over that she is way better than they are....and she is. She has accomplished so much more than all the 60 something or so Russians, on the tour right now. Kuzzy, Dementieva and Myskina, once showed so much promise and potential...now they have taken a back seat to Maria. Petrova and Elena are 25 and 26 and no grand slam title ...yet. Myskina is now pregnant and ranked 1101!! Vesnina, Anna, Kuzzy, Safina, Kirilenko, Zvonerava, Dushevina, Poutchkova, all need to step up. Who can challenge Maria? Who??? Discuss.

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
The Greatest Ever Grand Slam Team, Does It Again!!!!

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.

Re: When are the other Russian girls going to step up

Zvonareva was trying.
It should be Sveta, who's beaten Maria a few times.
They should be playing in Dubai in a few days.

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: When are the other Russian girls going to step up

Maria is not just beating Russian players. She is playing better than anyone so far this year.

Why Isn't Caroline Maes Challenging Justine?

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.

Taking a set off Maria is no good....it only pisses her off. You have to fight and win the whole darn thing!! Vera disappointed today. It's not good enough to say "at least I won a set'.

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
