They all SUCK...'cept Sharapova.

Just when you think they are gonna make they collapse.
They can get to the mountain top, but can NEVER cross over. Why do they continue to be second rate players??

Please Sharapova, CONVINCE ME WRONG...everyone else SUCKS!

I think that's WAY harsh. Quite a few of them have talent and are still young. With so many of them being upper ranked players, I think they're doing quite well.

For so many top ranked Russians only two SF´s and no real real BIG wins either...I guess there´s still time.

Thats true for some Russians but not all. Kuznetsova is doing really well this year, beating top players, so theres no way u can say that about her.

I think Svetlana's been playing a LOT lately with doubles and all. She's got to be tired.

kuznetsova and zvonareva are still young and are both inside the top 15, sharapova is young and inside the top 20 (hovering in and out atm). safina is young and is near the top 30, lina was top 30 last year and is young (she's dropped off this year but that could be because of all the problems she's having) bovina is around 30 or just inside it she isnt quite so young. douchevina is young and is steadily moving up the ranks, kirilenko is young and is slowly moving up the ranks.

most of the top russians are still young and can still improve a lot.

One should see them as individual players, not as "the russians", I Think...but sometimes that's hard with so many Elenas

I'm also little dissapointed with russians, but still hope they will someday go all the way on grand slams.

Gowza
May 15th, 2004, 04:13 PM
imo sharapova will be a slam winner maybe even a multiple slam winner, kuznetsova will be a big threat at the slams in the future and i think zvonareva will be a threat a RG in the future. bovina has the game if she can get more consistent to be a threat at the slams to. and we'll see about douchevina and kirielnko in the future. dont forget the juniors like kleybanova and the junior russians that are good players.

This is the first wave of Russians. In 5 years you'll have a hard time finding an american in the top20

Bitch and moan, they are here to stay

It's not like they are 35 and haven't won a thing. Come on, these days if you haven't won a Slam by the time you're 18 people mean you're worth nothing.

Ok, if i am being Harsh I apologize...but I am really starting to like some of these gals..and I am frustrated. My Sharapova and Kuznetsova are going well.

Not a Myskina fan, and the hype is overhyped.
The rest are following in her footsteps.

They are cluttering up with dreams of top 30...and it seem non are aspiring beyond that. Waiting on injuries or draw droppers to win titles.

Sharapova is the future...MARK MY WORD (Kuznetsova as well)

The rest need to dust themselves off and try again.

Well the one thing that Russians don't have to worry about is that they will never run out of another fresh bunch of talented and skilled players. I don't know 'bout the Americans though.:shrug:

Please Sharapova, CONVINCE ME WRONG...everyone else SUCKS! And what makes you think Sharapova, who has never reached the Qtrs of a Tier I of better... unlike all the other Russian girls who have... is better?

Because you're an uneducated jackass. Thanks.

I respectively disagree. Now way. yeah they suck, but they suck better than thousands of others. The non-russians are having a tough time getting where these suckers (russians) are now.

PS: The top-5 players , ofcourse, are better.

sharapova is second best out of the russians. I think Myskina is the best. It isn't easy winning a tourney. and i don't think sharapova is ready to lead the russian girls yet. she is only 17, and has done so well. don't bitch about her not doing this in a tier 1 tourney or that. she has won 2 tourney from my count, how many did anna k. win? o yea im feeling goose egg. she'l already lived up to standards, and could kick anyone's ass who is talking shit about her, and that goes for any other russian anyone is talking about. so don't diss the other players. jus relax, and watch the damn sport!

you really should not judge these poor girls. they have been under a lot of pressure since they were kids.i think thats why they tend to collapse. most european girls are like that. too uch pressure since childhood and that makes them weaker mentally. i think they need to breathe and just take things easy because they have plenty of talent.

How soon we forget RG 2003? Wasn't there a certain Vera that booted
some famous former grand slam champion? I can't think of her name off
the top of my head because I'm not the average non-tennis person on
the street in America. ;)

Gowza
May 17th, 2004, 06:55 AM
justine must also suck (i dont think she sucks) then coz didnt a certain russian beat her this year? oh yeah her name was svetlana kuznetsova. and myskina beat both justine and kim last year so kim must suck also (not really). oh and as mentioned above vera beat venus last year so venus must also suck (she doesnt). and dementieva beat venus this year so does venus double suck?

Volcana

Myskina is top five, won four tournaments last year including a Tier I, and won one this year. How exactly does that 'suck' compared to Sharapova?

Geez man, calm down!

The Russians are doing fine. So what if they're "hyped"? They're still racking in good results (dunno 'bout Lena D though...she's so inconsistent and it pisses me off), so, yeah, they're doing better than most of the WTA field.

The Russinas are blessed to have so many good women's tennis players. :) But none of the Russina's is thier 20's has a big enough game to win grand slams and challnge for #1. Myskina and Dementieva are having fine tennis careers. No one is saying they should be top 3 players and winning slams. It seems like Sharapova and Kuznetsova has the biggest upside of the younger Russina's. But only time will tell if either one of them or some other Russina can win a grand slam singles title.
