They aren't the only one's who it meant something for.

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

Re: No Russians in the SF of Moscow; 1st since 2002

But all four players in the doubles final are russian, so kinda makes up for the singles defecit.

Kvitova-Kanepi-Hradecka-Nana-Kuznetsova-Stosur-Kerber
Makarova-Flavia-Shvedova-Robson-Mona-Martic
Safarova-Begu-Sabine-Domi-Marion-Lepchenko-Hampton
All the British girls
