Yes, you are right

Sveta reached the Finals of the French and also the US in 2001, (losing to Kanepi and Bartoli)

Masha of course reached the final of the Australian and Wimbledon in 2002 (losing to Strycova and Douchevina)

Vera Douchevina on the other hand HAS won a Grand Slam, being Wimbledon in 2002 which I just mentioned

Maria Kirilenko also captured a Grand Slam title, beating Strycova for the US Open crown.

Dinara Safina came close to winning Wimbledon, but lost in the final to Widjaja.

And the list of Russians reaching Quarters, Semis goes on

Yes! TBE as usually is right.
And Lina was the best junior of 1999.
Sweet little 15!

Thanks everyone.
It's interesting, I think, that Sharapova has never won a junior grand slam, but is playing on the normal tour, thinking she will win one.
