My hands will be glad to know that I'll not do next weeks ranks.
I know I could have copied and pasted but for some unknown reason my computer decided that it didn't want to do it properly.
So I had to type it.
NEVER AGAIN.

Interesting, two years ago we had 30 girls in rankings, now we have 50. I think we'll have 100 one day.

I've heard of all of them, bet you wouldn't believe me though :p


Vera D plays another event, she comes in at worst around 660.

I was looking forward this yr to having 4 or 5 Top 20 players, suppose 3 will have to do with Nadya and Lina out :(

EGGY's heard of ALL of them?:eek:
I guess I shouldn't be too suprised:).
What did suprise me was how many of them I've heard of. I've not heard of half of them, but considering I'm not Russian, I'm suprised that I've heard of:
From Dementieva to Safina (exept Rodionova). Sharapova. Bastrikova. Kirilenko. Afinogenova.
Thats more than I could remember of the top of my head.
EGGY, the girls at the bottom of the list, are they very young players? I assume they are, but Sharapova's very young and she's further up the rankings. But she also played in.........IW? So is that why she's further up?

She's up the list as she's gained more points simple as that

Points makes prizes ;)

u guys missed alot if u would consider other ussr republics as russian, also there r a couple of girls who leave in deifferent countried and play for them, but they all r originally from russia. so u can add at least another 10 russians there.we will be close to 100 soon!!!!!!!

Eggy, I hope you haven't heard of all of them! :eek:

ys, 100 Russian girls in the rankings? You think big! But I doubt it's possible. Remember, a very small percentage of Russians even plays tennis.

ts, please don't go claiming girls from other countries as your own. ;) Russia is not lacking in female tennis players. That's for sure. :bounce:

Yes CAT probably only a small percentage of Russian's play tennis, but Russia has a population of roughly 150million people. So, if only 0.5% of Russian's played tennis, thats still a HUGH amount of players. (If my maths is right) That'd be around 750,000 players:eek:.
100 Russian players in the WTA rankings? I think it may yet happen:D.

dear cat, i dont claim girls from the other countries, but when ukranian or belorussian girls play and especially win, im happy for them and consider them as "ours". especially we all grew up together in juniors and were on the same team.
