What's happening with Russian men?

they are not just losing, they are losing every match they are playing.

it's becoming pathetic.

Mrs TBE, valerian roots are good for the soul! And you can borrow my valerian roots anytime.

The Russina's are good girls and concentrating on their careers. They don't have time for such extracarricular activities!

I've said it for months now. Russian men's tennis is in a terrible state. I'm surprised Mikhail Youzhny has had such a terrible year. And it all started when he lost that 2 set lead to Andy Roddick at the 2003 Australian Open. That match had a devastating effect on Misha. But it did wonders for Roddick.

I gather Marat Safin is using Lina Krasnoroutskaya's doctor.

I think late in the year is a time for someone like Youzhny to play better. The top players are tired and vulnerable to being upset. Misha just got to the semi's last week so maybe he will find some good form before the end of the year.

If Safin and Youzhny are healthy next year Russia will be tough to beat in the Davis Cup. But with Yevgenvy Kafelnikov retiring, Russia will need to develope a good doubles team for Davis Cup play.

Losing Dmitry Tursunov is a blow for Russian men's tennis. That cannot be denied. But he will not be playing on the American davis Cup team of Olympic team anytime soon, so I don't understand the need to change his citizenship at such a young age. Anna Kournikova and Maria Sharapova have lived in America longer than Tursunov has. And they haven't become American citizens. Why is Tursuno in such a rush to be an American? That is the question.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Igor Andreev is not so bad now and I think he'll bemore interesting next season as a player.
And he's very pleasant person too.

Oh Ally, tell me you didn't say that about your Lena.

I agree Saab, Igor Andreev will be a player to follow next year.
