Maria deserves to be ahead of Nastya, she does better under pressure.

Masha won't be there too long. A few weeks maybe.

the only prob with Myskina is that sometimes she chokes but fo me her game is better then Maria

Maria has a much better game than myskina, myskina is overrated imo, she had the french open win which shot her up the rankings, since then she has done nothing spectacular. Maria deserves to be the Russian no.1 cos at the minute she is better than the rest. :cool:

To be fair, Sharapova deserves to be ranked higher then Myskina. She's played better in big matches. Myskina is a craftier player, but Sharapova is a better match player.

I am sad for Nastya but Maria earned to be the best Russian (well for the moment ;)

Well done Masha. The other russians will probably use the excuse that she aint a real russian.

Good for Masha..

Hopefully being the 2nd Russian player will motivate Nastya more in the future...

She should be more focus and more consistent...

And not greedy ones who are going to push her to play every tournament in order to be and stay number one. I am sure Kim can give her some good advice about the disadvantages of doing that.
The Russians on a whole tend to play a lot (Whether American Russian or Russian Russian). If they do bad in one tourney they just fit themselves into another one thats playing soon even if they had not planned to. Their rivalry is insane. But then we all knew the niceness that the media tried to portray last year and before was total bull. They all seem to have some sort of hatred for at least one of them, even if their best friend is friends with the one they hate....lol. Maria is just the one that most of them seem to hate. She has a tough road ahead, it wont get any easier now that she is top ranked among them.

How long has Myskina been the Russian #1? Now that she's been dethroned, I wonder what will happen during Fed Cup. :bolt:

Good for Maria. She and Svetlana are the most talented. The others will either fall down or remain the same. I still hope that Lena D can move up.

maria has small points to defend before roland garros where she could easily improve on last year. she's truly on the rise, and myskina will need to play amzing to catch her.

Since 2002. Myskina is inconsistent, but let's see Sharapova winning some tier 1 & 2 and then talk. It will be interesting how the Russian Team will look like in Fed Cup. Altough Nastya has slipped in the rankings, I think Russia still considers her #1. She's done so much for this country.

Now she has finally become the Queen of Russia! No wait...she has always been THE QUEEN MASHA, so being the Queen of just one country would be an downgrade for her :scratch:

No, seriously, itīs good that Masha made it. I am not happy with hit, but at least Nastya knows that itīs time to raise her game.

Iīve already said last year that Masha-Myskina could be a very cool rivalry (on court!), so letīs see what happens;)

keep the spot warm maria cause my "myskina back on top of the rankings" thread is itching to get posted...lets see where everyone is year end, thats what really counts

dont forget the opposite though..maria has wimbledon winner points to defend and lets see if she plays those late year tier III and if she will be the only player in the top 30 this year as well...myskina has zippo to defend from us open and will still be a contender in doha and of course the kremlin cup..my gut tells me she will be super motivated right now

I used to like Sharapova, then started to dislike her a lot since her fans started to think she was the best ever.
Now, I still dislike her a bit, because of her attitude on the court, but I have to admit that she definitely deserves being the first Russian : I even feel that she deserves a lot more than Davenport or Mauresmo being number 1 !!!
She has one GS, the YEC, and is in the semis of a GS !! She's the only one who's done that !!
