This is going to be really weird that either Myskina or Dementieva will have a GS title under their name. Because when you think about them, you don't think about GS title with them or at least I don't. This is going to be really great! I hope Nastya carries home the trophey! Good luck Nastya!
There was a Russian player was did get to the semi finals at the Aussie Open and QFs at US Open - Natasha Chmyreva. She is almost forgotten now but she played in the 1970s and I remember her. This is a link to her page at ITF - http://www.itftennis.com/womens/play...layer=20003440
