Nov 29th, 2004, 06:56 PM
Well since we cant talk about anything in 05 yet since its not here..what do you expect from them?

I thinka atleast 2 slams and a possable Fed Cup .. and maybe a Russian #1

Nov 30th, 2004, 08:33 AM
Myskina to reach #1 ranking before Roland Garros

Myskina and Shrapova to win a major.

Zvonareva , Petrova and Bovina to be in the top 10 .

Petrova and Douchevina to win a title :D :hug: :bounce:

Nov 30th, 2004, 08:49 AM
Myskina or Sharapova will reach 1# ranking
4 slams of 2005 will be claimed by Myskina, Kuznetsova, Demetieva,Sharapova or Bovina.Petrova and Zvonareva will clinch at least 2 slam doubles titles.
Of course Russia will still remain the champoins of Fed Cup and will reach 1# ranking soon ;)

I expect all of them to improve. Then whatever happens, it's destiny.

Hi Lovely Stranger. :wavey: There just has to be a Russina #1 in 2005 and maybe even 2 Russina's will make it to #1 on the WTA computer. :)

I think the most important part of 2005 success will be for more Russians to move into the top 50.
I'd like to see 20 Russians in the top 50.
Zhenya, who is 18 today:D :bounce: , Vera D., Lina K., Kirilenko, Anna C., Panova, Alina, those are just a few.

Nov 30th, 2004, 06:28 PM
Lets hope the Russian success stories continue, but that they improve and can really hang with Lindsay, Belgians and Williams.

And I have bias for Elena D to pick up a Slam title en route! :)

Dec 1st, 2004, 02:49 AM
I hope Tatiana also gets back to top 50..I hope Voskoboeva has a breakthrough year also

Dec 1st, 2004, 05:17 AM
in 05, LenaD will be the first ever russian to reach World no.1 :)

winning 4 slams a year(singles), and of course big improvement on serve

LinaK - storm into top 20, winning some tier II/III titles

Dec 2nd, 2004, 05:21 PM
Right now there are 4 Russians in the top 6, 7 in the top 15.:cool:
It will be hard to improve on that.
I'd like to see a Russian at world #1.:bounce: That's next.
And if a Russian wins the AO, it's a Russian slam.:D

Dec 2nd, 2004, 07:00 PM
Of Course the complete Russian Slam was completed a little while ago ;) when Masha won Wimby.
But there's a chance to hold all 4 at once.

RG-Kafelnikov, Myskina
US-Safin, Kuznetsova

Marat Safin really should at last win the Aus Open next year. He's going to be 25, he should be at his peak and surface at Aus Open suits his serve and game.

Myskina to add 1 more Slam title

Elena D to win the French Open and US Open. :angel:

Maria Sharapova to defend her Wimbledon title.

Maria Kirilenko to make major step up into top 20.

Nadia Petrova to at least win her first title.

Fed Cup stays in Russia for the 2nd time.

Hmmm...interesting question. I highly doubt that three of the four GS will go to a russian again, that year was just too good to be true, still I think that Nastya will make it to number one before by the time the clay season is running, at least for a few weeks before grass tourneys hit off.

I have the feeling that there will be a great Masha/Nastya fight next year (ON COURT please!).

AusOpen pretty sure goes to a russian and maybe FO, doubt the other two.

Hum that will be a great fight..hum:
Lena vs Sveta
Ana vs Maria
Lena vs Maria
maybe Sveta vs Maria too


Well, I don't know about the AUS Open, but maybe Lena can do well again in US Open ;)
And Wimbledom I realy don't know.

Gee Bubble, why don't you ask for alot from the Russina's in 2005? ;) I just hope the Russina's continue their move upward in the tennis world in 2005. :)

Dec 3rd, 2004, 03:47 AM
I hope they improve..They've got everything but a AO and #1..Hopefully #1 in doubles to(though a Russian has already held it)

Dec 3rd, 2004, 05:24 PM
I hope several different Russians reach world #1.
The same way 3 have won majors.
I'd like to see some new breakthroughs. Lena D., Vera, and Nadia are very close. And Lena B.
They all deserve that chance to hold a major title.
