Nastya was the boss. Damn I hope she comes back hungry and fierce.

Does a Russian V Russian final really have any effect on the match? I don't think so

None in 2005.

Only 1 in 2007, early and it was Chak vs Bardina.

Yes. They always speak about how much they want to be Russian #1 and prove they are the best of the Russians.

Re: 2008 Berlin final set to be the 14th all-Russian battle.

Wow.. crazy how they happen in the even years.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: 2008 Berlin final set to be the 14th all-Russian battle.

It should be a great final I think,
Dinara came close at Rome in 2006 against Hingis, she is definitely prime for another big title.

Still, Come on Lena!!!

Venus Ana Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Masha Bencic Kristyna Keys Dani
Sania Vika Nicole Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval


Martina Hingis Forever!!!
