Sharky, I think it would be good if you can post another similar post but add the year when the players had those results (so that I can upgrade my knowledge further). Thank you.

I know Zvoreva isn't a Russian.

But what were her GS results? Zvevera's best singles result was 1988 Roland Garros final... and losing 6-0 6-0 to Steffi Graf. :p

Natasha also reached 1998 Wimbledon SF... losing to Nathalie Tauziat.

1995 Australian Open QF... losing to Pierce.

That's a few... I don't feel like looking anything up. :p

This is going to be really weird that either Myskina or Dementieva will have a GS title under their name. :p Because when you think about them, you don't think about GS title with them or at least I don't. :p This is going to be really great! I hope Nastya carries home the trophey! :D Good luck Nastya! :bounce:

Poor Morozova and Dementieva lost the same score in the final :eek:

Note: Myskina became the very first Russian player to win her first-ever Grand Slam at age of 22 and 11 months. :)

There was a Russian player was did get to the semi finals at the Aussie Open and QFs at US Open - Natasha Chmyreva. She is almost forgotten now but she played in the 1970s and I remember her. This is a link to her page at ITF - http://www.itftennis.com/womens/players/player.asp?player=20003440

And there is a thread here about her story. It is quite a sad story as she had to fight against the Federation - http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4478

Sharky, I know you want more than this, but that's life and it's time to update it for our Masha.

Reaching 3 GS SFs and a GS QF in one year for an 18-year-old girl is very impressive. So let's wish Masha more success at GSs in 2006!!
