Only because they have 3-4 girls dominating, rather than just 2 ;)

Russian... more diversity (Myskina, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Petrova etc instead of just 2 for the others)

And you can't ignore other russians. ;) They keep coming up and ready to roll :lol:
I pick Russian Domination because there are too many of them. Pluz, they play different styles, lots of diversity and have great determination. :worship:
I never get bored to watch. ;) It even gets more interesting when they have to fight each other. :lol:

Kim and Juju, not because they're Belgian, but because they play the most entertaining tennis. Not even their consecutive finals were that boring. Watch their Acura Classic San Diego final 2003 if you got the chance, got some unbelievable points. Kim's racket playing without her holding it, to name but one...

I quite like the russian domination there's about 4 really dominating just now and there's about another 30 who've got the potential to get to the top. In 2 years time we'll probably be sick of russians.

I'm still aiming for World Domination.

BWahahahahaha!

Jan 21st, 2005, 03:07 PM
There is no russian domination, OK, they have the majority of the players, but they still are not the only contenders and others proved they can beat them. I know, 3 slams went to them last year, but IMO esp. the last one was very lucky for Svetlana and only due to Lindsay's injury.... I think it is no real domination, but many of them are in the zone to win those tournaments, but a domination is something different.

Williams & Belgian dominations
were better because they were
only two players during the domination.

Williams domination most impressive because
they came from one family with a father who
fortold of their domination and was deemed a nut.

I dont think there is a Russian domination. They did win 3 Slams, but its not like they are the favourites to win every Slam or even every tournament they enter, unlike the Williams sisters and the Belgians.

Oh GOD! Easy question!
VENUS & SERENA of course! :bounce:

*They play a strong, powerful, smart game. :)
*Even injured they won slams. :kiss:
*They're the only active players who can encite extreme emotion (love em...hate em) from fans.
*They're living legends, who were said to have no chance at winning a grand slam, but did. :cool:
*They come from a single family!! :eek:
*They're the smartest players on tour. :worship:
and last but not least,
*They're a pleasure to look at (very sexy on and off the court). :drool:
The domination WILL return ! :wavey:

What is wrong with the Dubya quote?
Clinton/Gore stood for peace, prosperity and imcumbency because there was no war in 2000, the world economy was booming and they were the incumbents.
Why did they lose? The answer is simple - people wanted character to be king again in the White House. As is was in the Reagan years.

I respect the Williams sisters and what they did to the game, I just never found myself cheering for them that much. I like the Belgians too, especially Justine, but the Russians have really got me interested in women's tennis again.

I like the Russians for alot of the same reasons others have already given. Mainly there are so many of them and that leads to more variety. They also number amongst their contingent a certain Anastasia Myskina and she has certainly helped get me more interested in the women's game than I have been for, oh I suppose, ten or fifteen years.

A couple of posters have pointed out that the Russians aren't really dominating at all as all of them are quite beatable. This ofcourse is true. But thats another thing I like about the Russian revolution. For the first time I can ever recall Women's tennis is at a point where NO ONE is unbeatable. What the Russians have brought to tennis, pure and simple, is depth - something that has been lacking in the Women's game for many years. As a result of the emergence of the Russians the quarterfinals of this Australian Open looks set to feature 4 matches which would ALL be worthy of the final. Lindsay vs either Venus or Alicia, Nastya vs Elena, Svetlana vs Masha, and Amelie vs Serena. When have there ever been 4 quarterfinals as good as that. And who will win? It could be any of them!!!! That is exciting. As brilliant and amazing as Roger Federer is I think it takes some of the joy away from watching a grand slam when you know one guy (or gal) is so much better than the rest that the result is almost an inevitability.

The influx of Russians does not mean that Serena or Justine or Kim or Venus will never win another Grand Slam. But it does mean that it will never be so easy for them again. If they (or anyone else) wants to win a women's Grand Slam trophy now they are going to have to win three or possibly even 4 very tough matches. That has got to be a good thing.

None, domination is boring.

I'm a fan of the Russian domination mostly because they all play differently. There's Myskina, the best counter-puncher left in the game, Sharapova, who has so much variety mixed with power it's almost like seeing Federer and S. Williams crossed with one another, Kuznetsova with her smart, virtually flawless (by which I mean there are no holes in her game, almost no weaknesses to pick apart) forehand-crushing style, and Dementieva, with her grit and determination, and that serve, that reminds me of Jennifer Capriati. They exude the best that women's tennis has to offer, and there are more in the making.

That said, I prefer having no real domination. A nice change would be to see tons of different players doing really well, so that the depth in the game would be amazing.

Also, I might say you should put Williams domination under the heading American domination, because before them, the real contenders were Davenport, Capriati, and to a lesser degree Seles. Although Hingis is in the mix somewhere...

True!

In my honest opinion, the American and Russian domination were only fun when they were conquered. Especially when a petite Walloon talent produced the upset.

But if I had to pick one of the choices...then maybe....i dont know....belgian! Cuz I like both Kim and Justine...whereas, i only like Elena D. for the russians.

i liked the belgian domination. the williams at first was nice but then i got irritated cuz serena kept winning everything. yeah i know that justine won everything as well, but it didnt last as long. i would have gotten pissed eventually. i cannot stand the russian domination cuz the only russians i like are head cases, vera z and elena d.

That is absurd, why a lot of players with very different ways to play are bad for the game?

I think the ideal situation is a lot of player, with different games and for different countries. But i think is a lot better the Russian domination than the williams domination. Venus and Serena are great player, but their games are very similar, and they play fiercely against other players than against her sister

And I still want to look cool like Myskina... *whiiiiine* ;)
