Have we ever had a day like this?

10 matches of Russian players played on Wednesday 30/7.

We have already 9 out of 9. Dinara, Nastya, Lena L., Lena B., Sveta, Lina, Alyona, Zhenya and Kolya all won.

Will Nadya complete a Russian sweep?
Will we have a perfect day, a perfect 10?

I hope so..

Russian U18 girls had the easy job of beating Greece in semis of European Summer Cup Zone D, in Portugal.

Vera Douchevina and Maria Kirilenko took part in singles.
and today they play Spain

Good luck to my favs

Elena D. was 2 games away.
We could have had Nadya vs. Elena D.,
and Sveta vs. Elena L., as the 2 quarterfinals in the top half.
Still, excellent efforts from all four, and Lena B., also.

Now, vamos, Lina!!

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

And Nastya's and Dina's losses were somewhat not tennis-related. It's unbelievable, that Nastya gets sick the second time in row when playing Mandula.

Looks like another good day for Russian girls.
I don't remember that there ever were 6 Russians into Round of 16.

P.S. O-o-ops, it is actually already happened recently at Acura Classic.

Yes, I'd say Vera, Aliona and Lena B. have very realistic chances to go through

I don't think Lina will upset Kim and I cannot see Nadia beating Justine. Not after today's match against Vivi where she struggled so much

I can't find Nastya talking about her being sick. This is from tsn.ca about playing Alyona:
"I think it will be a really tough match for both of us. It's going to be tough mentally."

Lina and Alyona into the semis of a Tier I.
I see this as just the beginning. There are too many good Russians. And so young. And improving. And pushing each other.
It's just a matter of time.
But I'm very impatient. I want tomorrow to be a big, big day for Lina and Alyona.
