PYW - Moscow | First Round | Please vote!

PYW Moscow



This week's big event, a Tier I, is the Ladies Kremlin Cup in Moscow. Top names as Dementieva. Myskina, Sharapova. Schnyder and Mauresmo are playing here.

Quote:
Last season's final:

Elena Dementieva RUS [5] beat Vera Zvonareva RUS [6] | 6-3 6-3


The Top Favourites



1. Mary Pierce FRA [3]



2. Anastasia Myskina RUS [6]



3. Elena Dementieva RUS [4]



4. Alicia Molik AUS [7]

When looking at the rankings, it seems that a semi final between Alicia Molik and Mary Pierce are inevetable. Both of them have had good second half of the year and concluded their American hardcourt season with a SF and a F at the US Open respectively. Of course, seeds such as Maria Sharapova and Patty Schnyder could block their way, but they're rather inconsistent than succesfull on the PYW Tour.

In the other half of the draw, things are much difficult to predict. Neither Kuznetsova or Mauresmo could be named PYW greats. No, the danger in the bottom quarter could much more easily come from the qualifier department. Marta Domachowska and Iveta Benesova reached the main draw relatively easy and will be hoping to continue their winning ways.

The third quarter has the same problem, but instead of the lack of PYW talent, there's a wealth of it. Anastasia Myskina is a defending Grand Slam runner up, Magdalena Maleeva has swept away a title each season, Evgenia Linetskaya is one of the best Russians when it comes to winning smaller tournaments and Elena Dementieva is a former world number one and has not more than 5 PYW victories on her name. Should we say more?

It's up to you decide who goes to the second round of this strong Tier I event by voting for your favourite in each match!

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you
