Maria Maria! Will it be Maria Sharapova? Probably not yet. Since she's playing the juniors. I think it will be Elena Dementieva.

Elena D. for me, i guess

I want it for Anna - she needs it most.
If it is Elena D. also great - she is also under a lot of pressure to get her first.
But generally, I want anyone get that, for me it is not a question of WHO, it is a question of WHEN.. And I want it now..

LOL, ys!

I know the feeling! I always want NOW, not tomorrow or the next day! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

My big dream for Maria Sharapova is to be like Steffi Graf or Monica Seles in their old days! I hope Williams will retire their tennis careers when Maria joins the WTA Tour. I know I sound so mean but... I am getting tired of powerful Williams..... <IMG SRC="smilies/berzerk.gif" border="0">

I hope Anna K. or Elena D. is the first to win a title. Anna has suffered from alot of injuries. But she continues to look fabulous. Sharky(SharapovaFan), are you kidding, honey? You want the big "W's", Venus and Serena, to pack it in when Maria joins the WTA Tour in a couple of years? That's not going to happen. Maria is going to have to face the same problem Anna K. has faced in her career. That problem is a lack of size. Mary Carillo calls women's tennis, "Big Babe Tennis" for a reason. And that reason is great size and power. Which is something that Anna and Maria are lacking. But they make up for it by being gorgeous and very good tennis players. Udachi Anna and Maria!

P.S. - Sharky, I tried emailing you and Jose yesterday. But the emails failed in their delivery. I am registered with World Crossing. I just need Jose to make me a member.

I think Dinara Safina could be an athlete of Venus Williams caliber in the making.

Dinara is very strong , hopefully she can grow a bit more , but her serve still needs a bit of work on.

Svetlana Kuznetsova is a complete fighter , a bit like Elena D with a big forehand.

I just want a breakthru for any of the girls .... sooner than later

Good luck to my favs

YS, are you serious? I hope and expect Dinara to be very good tennis player. Maybe even in the top 10 some day. But please don't mention her being the same kind of athlete as the incredible Venus Williams. Venus is the greatest athlete in the history of women's tennis. No one would dispute that. Her great combination of size, speed, length, court coverage, power, serve and great defense are unparalleled in women's tennis. In fact, it was Venus' great defense that enabled her to routine the incredibly powerful Serena Williams in the recent U.S. Open final. Dinara is tall and can hit the ball. But can she move? She is a very good junior player. Because her brother Marat Safin is a tremendous athlete, doesn't mean Dinara will be one as well. If Dinara Safina is 3/4 the athlete and player that Venus is, she will have a tremndous career. And end up in the tennis hall of fame.

if you are looking for someone tall and athletic .... I don't mean Bovina.

Look out for 15 year old Vera Douchevina , she's got grace and boy can she play as well.
Plus she is tall , around 6ft.

Good luck to my favs
