I put up a poll about it on General Messages.

I HOPE tomorrow does not pass without at least one trophy tucked under a Russian arm!

Good luck to both girls in their finals....

Both won their semifinal matches very easily!
The most impressive though was Anastasia's domination of Hantuchova 6-2 6-1!!! That must have been an amazing match for her... take the title

That could be the biggest day in Russian WTA history. We have only three titles so far. We might end up having 5 tomorrow.

If I were to choose one, I would not know which one to choose..
Alyona's first title or first ever high Tier title for Russian girls..

I'm happier that Elena is playing Eleni compared to Justine.

I hope that tomorrow changes a lot of things and that both girls come out on top.

My best wishes go out to both of these ladies (esp Elena!).

Good luck Elena and Anastasia

I am watching Bedanova and Rubin match now, and I think Nastya has a very good chance. It looks like Daja doubted her own ability to match Chanda from the baseline, so she was trying to serve and volley quite a lot, and not having a good serve she was passed time after time. Daja was inconvincing in that. Nastya won't do that, she is plain better than Chanda from the baseline, so it will be up to Chanda to invent something. Overall, quite sloppy match so far.

I was just thinking the very same thing, ys. I expected to see Rubin on fire, but she doesn't need to do much in this match, and I agree it has been unimpressive.

Also, Elena's chances against a tired Daniilidou are far better than they would have been against Justine. So both Anastasia and Elena have excellent prospects tomorrow!

If they both win, June 22nd definitely becomes the first official Russian Roulette Forum holiday !! To be observed every year hereafter.
