I really wonder about it...... :rolleyes:

The only one I can really think of is Dementieva & Krasnoroutskaya.....

I mean.... after reading the comments by Kuznetsova after her loss to Dementieva at Kremlin Cup QF.... I mean.... WTF!!! :eek: :lol:

I believe its just so many people talking about the Russian girls on the tour rigth now, which creates a very intense competition among them... All the girls are trying to prove that they are the best out of the group.....

Likhovtseva is Myskina's best friend on the tour.

Sharapova and Kirilenko are also friends.

Before Montreal, I also didn't know about Likhovtseva's and Myskina's friendship.

Nastya is good friends with Likhotseva, Zvonareva, Dementieva... Probably most of the Russian's in fact :angel:

well i didnt read what was said but i do believe they are friends. but tennis is tennis and it's their profession and they want to be the best that includes being better than their friends and fellow countrywomen. tennis wise they are enemies basically so obviously some things are going to be said but that doesnt necessarily mean none of them are friends. but who knows.

i would think most of the players who came from Spartak would be friends. They grew up together so I would think they would have had some sort of friendly relationship with each other.

The girls all seem to get on pretty well except for maybe Lena D and Americanized Russians and Sveta if that article is true. I don't think Lena B and Vera D are too friendly with each other.

So basically Nastya and everyone...she might try a little bit harder and you can call her Clijsters the second;)

By the way, Masha S has also said several times this year that she is a good friend with Nastya.
...she might try a little bit harder and you can call her Clijsters the second
I don't think Nastya even has to try because right now she's already the #5 most liked player on this board:

#1. Dementieva with 633.5 points
#2. Henin-Hardenne: 533.5 points
#3. Clijsters: 457 points
#4. Davenport: 451.5 points
#5. Myskina: 427 points

By the way, Masha S has also said several times this year that she is a good friend with Nastya.Really? Thats good. I kinda feel sorry for Masha sometimes for all the negative comments she gets but i think thats because i read GM too much. :rolleyes:

I don't know if popularity on this board is a good or bad thing. :lol:
I think shes just naturally nice off the court, well atleast i hope so, i don't want her to be a do-gooder.
[This is not a crack at Kim please don't give me red dots, they're itchy.]

Kim and Anastasia are pretty friendly with each other too... i think.

...I think shes [Anastasia's] just naturally nice off the court
Also on the court: As you can see in the other thread - Nastya is one of the 'Best losers on tour'.

The Russians are all united on one front: their repulsion for Anna Kournikova! :lol:

Except Anastasia Myskina, of course. ;) They are probably on friendly terms since she grew up with Marat and Anna at the Spartak Club.

The cat is out of the bag if you will as far as the Russina's being good friends is concerned! :eek: They certainly aren't the good friends we think they are with the excepetion of a couple of them. And the competition is now so tough between them that bad blood between is bound to spill and it already has and that's good for women's tennis.

I'm sure the Russians don't like each other. Look at the Americans: they hate each other as well.

Some of the Russians are friends with other Russians. Some are just on a friendly basis .Some don't get along. You'll have that with any nationality or any group of people. I know for a fact that some of them are actually friends.

Nastya said several times that Alyona Likhovtseva is her best friend! She said it herself.
Vera & Sveta are great friends.

And basiclly all Fed Cup team of now - Nastya, Sveta, Vera & Alyona Likhovtseva.
Nastya & Lena D have good relationship too.
