Last couple of weeks were pretty kind to us (and to Russian girls
Nastya: final (loss to Dokic) and final again(at least)
Lena D. final (at least)
Lena B. loss to Raymond and Henin
Lena L. loss to Dokic and Bedanova
So it seems like there is a hope... what do you think? should we raise our expectations?
Personally, I think that Lena D. benefited (wisely) from a good draw. Nastya might be peaking too early.
Considering their Wimbledon draw:
Lena D. must reach the fourth round (no real grass court players in her draw)... Could she beat Justine? I doubted, but if she does, we'll see Lena in the semis.
Nastya: got an EXCELLENT draw and, unless she has spent too much energy playing in the past too weeks, should find herself in the quarters. The question remains: did she peak too early? As it happened to Potato Man... Last year Lleyton was unbeatable on grass coming into the Championship, but couldn't do much damage there.
Lena B.: should reach the third round: Tatiana doesn't like grass at all and we all know Anna's problems. But I don't think Lena B. will beat Iroda or Chanda (whoever reaches the fourth round)
Lena L.:got the worst draw... at least potentially. Roberta seems to be in good form. Kim is an excellent player, but she seems to have problems finding her form recently. I think, if Lena gets through the second round, she'll be playing in quarters. It's doable, Lena!
