There might be some dislike among some of the players. So many are so close in ability, it seems that our opinions change all the time about who is better than who.
But competition is good. Everyone should be watching the other Russians, knowing that they can do that too.
Who knows, one of them might be hosting award shows next year.

I haven't heard about this. I think its good that there is healthy competition between the girls, as I believe it pushes them to work even harder.

What happened between Bovina and Zvonareva>>

I also assumed from a quote from Elena D that neither she nor Vera really got on and was surprised to see them playing doubles together at Zurich....

You could not be possibly more surprised than seeing Elena D. play doubles with Anna K. this spring, could you?

Alyona was one of the first people to become Vera's friend on the tour. She asked Vera to come practice with her, according to Vera's US Open interview.

I thought there has always been a resentment towards Americanized Russian players like Anna K and Maria S?

I think the story was that Anna wouldn't talk to the other Russians.
I think she's matured since then.
Several of the Russians are friends with each other. The Russians who now live in a different country have their own support teams that they spend time with.

cmon cat, enough! be realistic... take those pink glasses off and think... there are people around you (at work, school) you don't like, just like there are people who don't like you (in many cases without any special reason). tennis is no different.

I remember thinking how much I wanted to see the Nadya-Masha match.
That L.A. website was awful. That was summer and I had time to go to the L.A. Times on-line, and read the tennis stories.
I don't recall anything written about any arguments or anything else unusual.
I remember Dokic wasn't impressed after she played Maria at Wimbledon.

Pink is one of my favorite colors, tenn_ace dahlin! So I think I'll leave my pink glasses on if you don't mind.

Of course there are people around me I don't like. But I don't hate them. Maria is friendly person. And I don't think she's upset if Petrova doesn't like her.

You sure stirred the pot with this thread, tenn_ace. In fact your first word in this thread is apparently. But apparently doesn't mean definitely. Thus I would like someone to confirm that the Petrova - Sharapova and Schaap - Sharapov incidents took place. And that's the last I'll say on this topic.

Aaaah yes, the Elena D/Anna K doubles partnership was definitely surprising! I completely forgot about that ys!

I'd love to know how that partnership came about?? Sponsors?? The WTA Tour? Or maybe the girls themselves? Or was it an advertising gimmick to use two hot blondes and make them play doubles together??

Maybe I got it wrong about Elena and Vera! Well I hope they can advance to the SFs in Zurich this week!

How do you know cat that Elena and Nastya like Maria? I think it isn't very possible that Maria would play FC.

CO, I know Anastasia and Elena like Maria because they are friendly towards her and they look so happy when they are photographed together! And Maria and Anastasia train together in Los Angeles under the tutelage of legendary tennis coach Robert Lansdorp and Anastasia is very complimentary of Maria and doesn't want her to turn into another Anna Kournikova.
