has anyone noticed that justine has been facing a lot of russians?

i know there are a lot of russians on the way up but at the acura classic and this week justine has been facing a lot of them. at the acura classic she faced dementieva, petrova and kuznetsova in consecutive matches. and this week she has faced petrova, bovina, dementieva and will also face krasnoroutskaya. is justine the only one having to do this? i don't think many players in back to back tournaments (for justine it is back to back) have had to do this. i wonder whether anyone else has had to do this. is justine the russian killer?

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Justine Henin-Hardenne is the WTA Russian destroyer! She has too much variety and firepower for the Russina's. But one of the Russians is due to beat Justine. Why not Lina K?

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

If Lina beats Justine today... does that make her the Belgian Destroyer?

She would, I guess

I think this amount of Russian opponents means the girls are living up to the expectations and getting far in plenty of tournaments

let's hope it's one russian too many today

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Anyone going deep in a draw nowadays is going to have to beat several Russians.
Kim beat Maria and Sveta in L.A., then lost to Lina.
Suarez beat Lena B. in L.A., then Sveta and Vera in Toronto before Lina won the semis.
The Russians, in several cases, are young and gaining experience.
Today is great for Lina, win or lose.
Allez Lina!!

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

Yep, even Elena D said yesterday that if Justine defeated Lina, she would rename Justine as the 'Russian Killer'

Yea, Justine just needs to watch out for Dementieva Remember Testud to Hingis? Well Elena might be the one Justine scratches her head on when she sees the draw. Also, when Justine plays Kournikova, its just a pity to watch Justine show her talents more.....

Now her record against Russians is 28-2
