Wimbledon - comeback of the russians

I really think (and hope) that the russians will show a phenomenal comeback in London.

I don't think the winner will be a russian (unless there is a surprise or sharapova plays unbelievable tennis) but i think that there will be at least 7 russians in the 4th round.

Petrova (plays some really good tennis on each surface this year)
Sharapova (is in great form as we've seen)
Dementieva (if she plays)
Kleybanova (dark horse)
Pavlyuchenkova (dark horse)
Zvonareva (faster surface - better results)
Kulikova (was in r3 last year, was in great form in dubai)
Kirilenko (at leat r4 in the two slams of the year...)

and what about

Safina
Kuznetsova

(both have nothing to lose at the moment, both are outside the top 15 and ready to (re)play some good tennis...)

Chances for round 3 (ready for an upset)

Dushevina (played a three set tiebreaker against serena in madrid)
Kudryavtseva (defeated sharapova in 2008)
Vesnina (played great tennis the year before)

Chances for round 2

Pivovarova (played good tennis at the french)
Pervak (was not bad against sharapova at the french)
Lapuschchenkova (well, you never know)
Chakvetadze (well, you never know)

Titel [Suicide T.]: Linz 2015, Marrakesch 2014, YEC 2014, Rom 2013, Guangzhou 2013, Peking 2012 und Fes 2012

Re: Wimbledon - comeback of the russians

I hope to see at least two russians in the QF.
But only Sharapova has real chance to go that far unless she doesn't run into Henin, Venus and Serena too early

Maria Uselesspova

Re: Wimbledon - comeback of the russians

good luck to them

Re: Wimbledon - comeback of the russians

MariaK honestly sucks on grass. A win in Wimbledon would be outstanding. Sveta has not much love left for Wimbledon either in some of those past years. Masha should do fine

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Wimbledon - comeback of the russians

sharapova has potential to reach the semis, but everyone's forgetting she has GREAT potential to lose in round 2 as well. i think her game on grass is grossly overrated

Re: Wimbledon - comeback of the russians

Maria needs to lead the way. I want to see her replicate the determination she showed vs. Henin at RG in every match she plays for the rest of the year - I'll bet she'd end the year top 5 if she can keep that up.

Re: Wimbledon - comeback of the russians

Kirilenko, and to a lesser extent, Zvonareva are hopeless on grass.

To be fair, all of them are poor grasscourters but Petrova' serve and Dementieva's robotic hitting (if she's healthy) won't allow them lose early.
With others, it all depends on the draw.
