AN ALL RUSSIAN FINAL!!! The 2004 French Open

With the Olympics coming up, this is a very important tournament. This week Nastya is #5, Nadia is #8, Lena D. is #10, Vera is #11, Sveta is #12, Maria is #19.
Nadia has 510 points to defend as a semifinalist last year. Vera has 334 to defend as a quarterfinalist.
Nadia and Meghann have won 4 doubles titles in a row, 3 Tier I's. Sveta has played in the doubles finals of the last 2 majors. Sveta and Lena L. have reached the finals of 6 of the 7 2004 tournaments they've played together.
Lena B. won the mixed title in Melbourne.

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

GL knows everything thanks
Saw Tatarkova playing, she has pretty good game, good defense but I'd say she is bit too slow, she looks bit heavy.

Udachi Nastya !!!

To me, Nadia & Vera have the best chance to do anything. Nadia made the semifinals last year and won it as a junior, plus she's been doing well on clay this year. Vera has been consistant also making the semifinals of Rome and she made the quarterfinals last year. Yeah Nastya is the No.1 Russian but clearly not in form and was never really good on clay. So she is no threat to me.

Udachi Nadia! You can do it girl! Win Roland Garros 2004!

imo sveta has the best chance to do well then vera z then dinara. nadia hasnt exactly played well this year on clay, vera isnt playing amazing but she is playing well enough to beat a lot of players, sveta is playing amazing and if she can keep the form up then she should go far. i hope elena d, elena b, myskina, nadia, vea d, masha and maria k can do well as i do with vera z, dinara and sveta.

c'mon on girls go get them!

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.

Here is a link to highlights of the showdown between between Vera Z and Nadia from the QF last year . It's the match after the CLijsters vs Martinez match.

If they can play this level of claycourt tennis this year, they should one again achieve some impressive results.

Звонарёва ~ Павлюченкова
Петрова ~ Клейбанова
Сафина ~ Кириленко

The draw is tomorrow. It looks like Nastya, Nadia, Lena D., Vera, Sveta, Maria, Lena B., and Dinara will all be seeded.
I hope everybody is spread out in different sections.
