There seem to be a lot of Lena D fans here.

I don't know that there are that many of us, we just get out the vote.

I also think that Lena fans are more inclined to have her as their one and only #1 favorite--unlike as another poster mentioned, the two Mashas who seem split votes.

Please understand that I am not making a value judgement and saying that you are a bad fan or your favorite player isn't good enough because you have another player you like just as much. I'm just saying Lena has a "core constituency" that usually stays intact for these polls.

What I see as great loyalty another could see as mindless boosterism and an inablity to appreciate different tennis styles and personality types. And we could both be right. But I know I've seen other posters comment on Dementieva's ability to do well in polls out of proportion to the size of her fanbase. If anyone else has a theory, I'd love to hear it.

(All that, and of course she is adorable and perfect and smart and . . .

My favorite Russian has changed in the past month. It's now Maria Kirilenko, I just love watching her play, she has all the shots and I think she has more talent than some give her credit for. She has suffered some bad draws this year but I think she will end this year in the top 15 with some good upsets coming soon!
