"Eggy" doesn't know the best.

Just because he makes up stories like "I coached Lena Bovina." "I traveled with Lena in China in 2000." "I fucked a Russian girl in the Top 200."... which is funny when Lena doesn't even know he exists.

It doesn't mean he knows anything.

Bah, whatever... I'm not wasting my time with a worthwhile reply to you idiots. Thanks.

I don't even know how to do this.
I think if Alyona is playing well, she can do fine at the French.
To me, the draw is a bigger deal than which major. Plus how healthy the player is.
I expect all the Russians to play well in Queens. I want them to not have to play top players in the first three rounds.
Then I hope someone ( or two, or three ) peak in the second week.

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

Interesting thread Sharky. Concerning our favorites, I agree with you on Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva and Anna Kournikova. But I disagree with you about Maria Kirilenko. Maria's should read W, USO, AO and RG. How did you come up with RG as the second best grand slam choice for Maria K? Her worst surface is clay.

ys, you think Elena D's best chance to win a grand slam is Roland Garros, where she's never had any success as a professional?

I'd put Lena Bovina's chances of winning Wimbledon as the least likely of the 4, she doesn't like playing on the grass as much as other surfaces.

Most of our girls prefer clay or are best on the clay.
only Lina hates playing on it. Hate might be too strong a word but she doesn't like it, its too slow for her generally.(Sharapova is also not too fond of it).

Good luck to my favs

When you say Slams does that mean mixed & doubles too?

I say:

Myskina - RG, AO, US, W
Dementieva - RG, US, W, AO
Petrova - RG, US, AO, W
Kuznetsova - W,RG, US, AO
Sharapova - W, US, AO, RG
Zvonareva -RG, US, AO, W

It's great that you were right about Myskina, and Lena (a finalist) 10 months before the French Open 2004.
(But not about Masha.)
