Re: Russia Watch Special: 23 Russians in the French Open!

Another Open, another huge group of Russians.

Another set of disappointments in qualifying, although probably not unexpected with the dismal results of the Russians during the clay season. Galina, Evgeniya, Lioudmila, and Alina were all upset by lower ranked players. However, congrats to Alla for making it to her first French Open main draw

Looking at the main draw:
Elena Vesnina, whose had a difficult clay season, will be one of the first Russians to exit, as she unfortunately picked Justine Henin first round.

Nastya Myskina makes her comeback after a lengthy injury break. She has a tough first round against Meghann Shaughnessny.

Yari Shvedova, once a qualifying mainstay, makes her first French Open main draw.

Nastya Rodionova meets (17) Katarina Srebotnik in the first round.

Any thoughts or predictions you have for the Russians for this French Open?
