But if I have to choose one of these Russians, then it will be Sharapova who play doubles with Kirilenko:P
I like MS for being VERY good at promoting tennis(rather promoting herself, but when she promotes herself, she promotes tennis too)

I Love Maria
Sep 13th, 2004, 09:00 PM
Maria Sharapova. She's young, beautiful, extremely talented and with a winning mentality. What more is required?

udachi Elena
Sep 13th, 2004, 09:04 PM
Lena D of course:)

Sep 13th, 2004, 09:08 PM

Sep 13th, 2004, 09:17 PM
Anna Kournikova. But she's not in this poll.

From this poll I pick Elena Dementieva. She has a really beautiful game, apart from her serve maybe. I also like her personality (from what I can see on TV), and her looks.

I hope she wins a grandslam someday. :)

Sep 13th, 2004, 10:49 PM
Myskina, then maybe Dementieva.

Sep 13th, 2004, 10:55 PM
Likhovtseva :wavey:

There should have been more Russians in that poll. What about Zvonareva, Kirilenko, Tchakvetadze or Douchevina to name some ?

I'll vote for 'Psycho Vera'

William Hunt
Sep 14th, 2004, 12:23 AM
or no, make that Lina Krasnoroutskaya ! Lina is adorable but currently injured.

Sep 14th, 2004, 12:41 AM
my fav is Masha :)

Sep 14th, 2004, 04:22 AM
Being a die-hard fan of Capriati, I hope I am welcome here.

I happen to have much respect for most all of the players on the tour, no matter what their Country of origin is. However, getting back to the question at hand, I can't decide who my favorite Russian player is... they are all way to good!!!

If I had to make a decision, I would choose "Our" US Open winner, Kuzzie, she showed strength, endurance, ability, agility, and just about everything else that is necessary to win a match!!! Dementieva was a strong and complementary opponent... I don't think I can really pick between the two.

Russia has also brought us the "famed" Myskina, and one, who I believe will prevail someday, Vera!!!!!

Congratulations to all the Russians!!! As an American, I am proud to say, "The Russians are Coming!" Tennis is happy to have you!!!!

:wavey: :wavey:

I have to acknowledge my American Favorite however, Jennifer Capriati! She has spirit, attitude, and the desire to "come back"!!! Ya' Gotta' Love Her!!! :hearts: :hearts: :lick: :bounce: :bounce: :worship: :worship:

Sep 14th, 2004, 04:58 AM
i have respect for all the russian players..but Myskina and Dementieva are my fav ones!

Sep 14th, 2004, 05:08 AM

Sep 14th, 2004, 05:52 AM

Sep 14th, 2004, 07:37 AM

WTA Tour Ranking as of 13th September 2004

#2 Myskina, Anastasia
#5 Dementieva, Elena
#6 Kuznetsova, Svetlana
#9 Sharapova, Maria
#11 Zvonareva, Vera
#13 Petrova, Nadia
#17 Bovina, Elena
All the Russian players included in this POLL are Top 20 players.

But Vera Zvonareva is the only Top 20 Russian player that is left out of this POLL.

So it would be nice if you could also have Zvonareva in your POLL next time, SharapovaKixA$$.

Sep 14th, 2004, 08:29 AM
Always and forever, Elena Dementieva :D

Not jusy my favourite Russian, but also my favourite player.

Sep 14th, 2004, 08:37 AM
also Likhovtseva is very popular on this forum. she may not be top 20, but she should be in this poll :(

Sep 14th, 2004, 09:21 AM

#29 Likhovtseva, Elena
#48 Safina, Dinara
#72 Jidkova, Alina

Then how about a POLL of Top 30 players from Russia which would include Likhovtseva or a POLL of Top 50 players from Russia with Safina and so on?

Sep 14th, 2004, 11:07 AM
Lena D ;) :yeah:

Sep 15th, 2004, 03:42 PM
Where's the option to vote for AnnaK ? :p

No, I am serious. I am.

Sep 15th, 2004, 04:10 PM
Myskina and Zvonareva.
I like players with a lot of emotion. :lol:

Sep 15th, 2004, 04:14 PM

I voted for Myskina. It is her coolness - she's just sooo cooool... *siiiigh* :cool:

I really became an Elena D fan and Sveta K fan after the US Open :) and I like Vera Z too... I pretty much like all of the Russians!! :)
