Nastya for sure. I can think of one other russian who is closing in on her in my favorite list but she's not in this poll, maybe next one. Anyway Nastya is still my number 1 favorite.

The world is in balance and harmony. This is as it should be, in terms of popularity, in terms of rankings, in terms of finishes at tournaments, and everywhere except the poor, confused mind of meyerpl ;)

Suprise Suprise Dementieva winning yet another poll, she seems to have endless fans. Thats not knocking her.

delicatecutter
Aug 2nd, 2006, 08:30 AM
LenaD, of course! :worship:

No one seems to be giving their reasons why, but I love LenaD because IMO she is the best mover on the women's tour, has a bodacious forehand AND she is #6 in the world despite having one of the worst serves in women's tennis. She is the "underdog" personified. She is naturally oh so beautiful. What is there not to love?

Nastya is my #2 but I don't have enough time to talk about her. haha.

well i hardly have to say do I , As the Capt of the Esteemd SS Dementieva I can hardly be a huge Kuznetsova fan or something now can I ,but Seriously ,Lena D is everyting I adore ,shes natrually gorgeous and has a great athletic body ,despite her serving I enjoy her style of game ,shes unpredictable and never boring ,can lose to anyone and beat anyone all in the same week ,she has a wonderful sexy sweet voice ,even her grunt is cute.

But above all ,shes totally non Media orientated ,she doesnt give a flying fuck for Fame ,shes not of this "big brother" me me me me generation ,despite her sucess and millions in the bank ,shes down to earth and a very sweet girl indeed ,she really is adorable and I bet a great person to know and be with...

Second for me will be Nastya ,shes drives me mad at times and gets a little cocky ,but shes truthful and exciting and off court a very nice girl indeed ,and attractive in a mysterious kinda way too ...

Elena Dementiava- I admire the grunt: 'whooopaaaah!'

She's very entertaining to watch, even when she's losing(a bit like Venus). Off-court too, she seems really nice. :)

I'm sorry but i cant hold it in....this child is sight for sore eyes...she gets on the court and look like a straight up caveman sometimes. I mean your game is the most important thing when it comes to tennis, but DAYUM...sometimes a lil make up or something wont hurt.

So, what's your bets on Masha/Nastya? So far it's 51-50, but since Masha has got much more haters, probably Nastya will win in the end.

Based on :

° Passion for- and dedication to the sport,
° Workethics,
° Remarkable introspective abilities at such a young age,
° Maturity and strong will to improve her game,

:) My vote goes to Maria Sharapova.
With lots of respect and sympathy to the other Russians.
