Nastya playing other week in a row...
This way she will be completely burned out for the Masters.

Rest Nastya :'(

Meanwhile, trash Kim - again!

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!

I thought you may enjoy this if you haven't read it yet

Legendary coach Lansdorp on Sampras, Davenport, Myskina, etc.

By Matthew Cronin and Ron Cioffi
********************

Lansdorp – Tracy Austin and Lindsay Davenport's former tutor – is been very pleased with his work with Myskina, who has jumped from No. 59 at the year's outset to No. 12 this week. The Russian came to Lansdorp's place of business at the South Bay Tennis Center in Torrance, Ca. earlier this year, looking to step up her game.

"She had great timing and feel with the ball, is fairly quick and can get herself into a good position," Lansdorp said. "She's so coachable and really listens. She had a pretty good flat backhand down the line, but had no forehand crosscourt. She needed more pace and power on her shots. So we started working with targets and making her more aggressive all around. She was playing too defensively. Once she started stepping into the court more and returning serve more aggressively, she got a lot better. Her problem is that sometimes she tends to lose to players she has no business losing to."

Lansdorp isn't sure whether Myskina can crack the top five, which is a very elite group of players that contains the Williamses and Capriati in the top three and mixes in and out Monica Seles, Amelie Mauresmo, Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin. But Myskina took down Clijsters in the Leipzig semis last week and her coach is willing to give herself a shot.

"She's the first player I've had who came to me after the juniors who I've been able to really help," he said of the 21-year-old. "But to get to the top five is very difficult. There you need to be consistently powerful. She definitely needs to improve her first serve and volleys, which were horrible when I first started working with her. And to be No. 1? Who's going to beat Serena now? You have to play unbelievably well to beat her. She has it all."

Why is she playing every week? Does she want another wrist injury or something? There is no need for Anastasia to be playing all of these tournaments. She's starting to play an over crowded schedule the way Kafelnikov and Safin do!

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

the cat, they all have their own reasons, irrespective if we like it or not. I think, we should respect their choices.

Safin, for instance, needs to make sure he will be one of 7 players eligible for the Masters Cup. His schedule was not so heavy at the beginning of the year, but since he had miserable post-RG season, now he plays as much as he can.

Maybe it is the same with Nastia. Championships is important and she is doing everything she can to get to LA.

Congrats Nastya

Her quarter now:
Anastasia Myskina - Marie-Gaianeh Mikaelian
Justine Henin - Anna Smashnova

She has a great shot on making the semis. She has much more game than Mikaelian, she'll surely beat her. I hope she doesn't choke.

On quarters, she could face either Justine or Anna S. She knows how to beat Justine and also how to beat Smashnova. By the way, I think that Anna will beat Justine, she sucks indoors.

Head-to-head: Justine HENIN (BEL) v Anastasia MYSKINA (RUS)

2000 Palermo Clay (O) 32 Justine HENIN 7-5 6-2
2002 New Haven Hard (O) 16 Anastasia MYSKINA 5-7 2-6

Tied 1 : 1

That Palermo match was a long time ago. So Go Nastya!

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
