My comments:

Sania MIRZA:
Once again, Sania is quoted in that thread. Last week, she was runner up in Forest Hills Tier IV 75K$ stopped by Lucie Safarova to capture the tittle.

Lucie captured her 2nd tittle of her carreer this week in Forest Hills Tier IV last week. She prooved once against that she's a potential very good player upsetting the 2nd seed/n45 Anna Smashnova and the 3rd seed/n50 Sania Mirza

It's good to have some american girls in that thread considering the huge arrival of eastern girls! Jamea played a very good tournement in New Heaven Tier II 585K$. First she beat in the qualies the 6th seed/n56 Jill Craybas and the 4th seed/n49 Maria Kirilenko (with only 2 games lost in that match!). She kept playing good in the main draw upsetting Veteran n55 Magdalena Maleeva before falling to Jie Zheng (n64).

Emma is mixing her appearance in the WTA and ITF tour to improve her ranking. This week, she's up 8 places thanks to a logical victory in Helsinki 25K$ challenger where she was the 1rst seed.

Another American hope...but Carly has still a long run to make but step by step she's closer from the top 150. Last week, she was playing the qualies in New Heaven Tier II 585K$ and reched the 2nd round beating Lindsay Lee Waters (n99) before loosing to the 4th seed/n49 Maria Kirilenko.

Aravane REZAI:
We discovered Aravane this year in Roland Garros for her 1rst appearance as WC where she faced Maria Sharapova in the 2nd round. Everybody was impressed by her powerfull game from both sides...but also full of risks. She's up 19 spots this week because she reached the final in Coimbra 25 K$ Challenger falling to the talentuous Monica Nicolescu (n367)

Victoria AZARENKA:
Another teenage rising star from the eastern countries!!! She's only 16 y.o and makes her Top 200 debut this week. In New Heaven, she ousted two top 100 players in the qualies: Alona Bondarenko (n80) and 5th seed/n52 Samantha Stosur before falling to in-form 2nd seed/n41 Kveta Peschke. She's up 22 spots this week

Wow Ana is inching closer to Top 10, I think she's got the whole package compared to the other young up and comers who lack something.
