Nastya had a great year. #1 Russian. #7 in the world.
But in L.A. she lost close matches to Justine and Jennifer. And now Amelie.
Nastya is right there with these top players. She needs to take one more step forward in 2004.

Nastya also lost 2 out of 3 to fellow Russian, Elena Bovina.

Instead of being so confident in interviews, she should mention that Bovina is the superior player. That would only be right.

Nastya earned her position as Russian #1 for 2003.
In January, it all starts again.

I don't think Nastya will be mentioning that, #1 CAF. Bovina will have to earn her success the way Myskina did. And that's by going out and winning WTA titles and making the top 10.

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

Nastya reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne this January. Then she won Dohar, and reached the quarterfinals in Dubai.
So it will take good tennis by Nastya early next year to maintain her #7 ranking.

I talked to Anastasia a few days ago, looks like she is feeling really well, in Moscow training but she'll be flying to Australia in a couple of weeks from what is planned right now, just training hard and taking some time to relax a bit more right now... Go Nastya in 2004!

Thanks for the report. Is her coach/boyfriend with her in Moscow?
Tell her how impressive she was in Leipzig and the KC to be Russian #1 again in 2003. Nastya was amazing!

It could only mean that she has split with the German. Because, from what I remember, her previous bf was Artyom Derepasko, and she left him for her German coach at list 2 years ago or so. So, the German does not qualify as new in any way. Well, I didn't really like that baldening German anyway, or was I simply jealous ?

Thanks for the news, but it somewhat surprises me. Her German boyfriend was at the YEC with her, and she looked at him almost every point she lost. Besides, in the interview she had with Hingis, she talked about him like he was the one helping her improve a lot lately. I thought they would be together for at least a few more years cuz she seems to admire and love him so much. This is life, so whoever is her current boyfriend is really lucky cuz she is a nice and smart girl.

Anyway, I wonder if this will affect her game in 2004. I guess it doesn't, and I hope she will do well next year

I remember that Nastya trained in Germany for Leipzig. Her old boyfriend is German.
So when I read Nastya was in Moscow, I asked about the boyfriend.
New love is great. And the timing is great.
Enjoy the holidays, Nastya!

Thanks for all the information. If Nastya's happy, that's what's important.
What does he look like?
