Myskina and she will do it (if everything goes fine) next year before the middle of the year.

Go Nastya :yeah:

I picked Kuznetsova but I'm still hoping it will be Dinara.

Oct 22nd, 2004, 09:31 AM
I *want Sveta or Masha or Lena D to reach the 1st ranking but I think Nastya *will be the first to do this

Oct 22nd, 2004, 09:32 AM
I vote for Anastasia!!

Myskina - with better showings at Wimbledon and the US Open she could well have been there by now.

Oct 22nd, 2004, 10:01 AM
Lena Demenva

next yr til Miami she has <200 pts to defend

Good Luck LenaD!!

I think Kuznetsova as she really does look the goods.

With more consistency she will get there.

Although Myskina is ranked #3 she could be the one to get there also.

But she has to defend all those points next year now.

Starting with a SemiFinal in Melbourne next year.

It's getting interesting!!!

Kuznetsova and Myskina are so close together in ranking points difference.

Oct 22nd, 2004, 11:52 AM
dementieva got 200 points to defend until next years miami..
then she got a lot to defend in RG and US Open
but at the same time
so many 1r loses
so if she would reduce that
she can get a lot of points

voted for Sharapova but I hope its Dementieva!

Oct 22nd, 2004, 12:33 PM
Dementieva plays so many events that is bound to have the odd 1st round exit

Fearful Jesuit
Oct 22nd, 2004, 02:37 PM
Elena Dementieva

Oct 22nd, 2004, 02:37 PM
I think it'll be Myskina

Oct 22nd, 2004, 02:44 PM
Lena D I think...

Myskina and she will do it (if everything goes fine) next year before the middle of the year.

Go Nastya :yeah:

I dnt think so, as much as i like her, i have a great haunch she cannot defend her RG title and lost badly in the early rounds.

Oct 22nd, 2004, 03:06 PM
It will be Sharapova.

Oct 22nd, 2004, 05:18 PM
Kuzzi wiyll be there sooner or later. Don't know if it will be beforeor after Nastya though. maybe Nastya wouldn't be one :scared: , and she'll be the first?

I voted Elena D purely on bias (although she could do it ;). It could be any of the Top 4 Russians though.

Oct 22nd, 2004, 06:21 PM
lena d. maybe next year before the uso or maybe as early as indian wells.
but i think she'll get there before all is said and done.

Oct 22nd, 2004, 06:36 PM
I think Anastasia, Svetlana, and Elena all have a chance.
But Sveta plays the most, so I make her the favorite.

Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:04 PM
I hope my favourite Russian player Anastasia will realize that!!

Oct 23rd, 2004, 01:24 PM
All have weaknesses, and it also depends how the non-Russians fare.

Nastya very nearly got it this year, but she missed the boat. Elena nad Sveta are closer. But Masha has the tools to do it if she improves her consistency.
