the Queen Bee of Russian tennis will not be in attendance at Moscow 2006. but there are 10 other Russians that will contest the Main Draw of the tournament. all will try to garner the adoration of the Russian fans and also pick up the title of Kremlin Cup Women's Champ 2006.

SHARAPOVA - fans will like the fact that she is a 2x slam champ but her record at Kremlin Cup is terrible - she only won last year because ALG injured and also she has never represented Russia in Fed Cup.

KUZNETSOVA - I don't think the Moscow crowd really likes Sveta :confused: maybe because she is from St. Petersburg

DEMENTIEVA - the hottest Russian will get her alot of attention from the male spectators. it also helps that she will be Yeltsin's fave now that Myskina will not play. she is born, raised and still resides in Moscow and is a Fed Cup stalwart as well as Olympic silver medalist for her country. my pick for the fan favorite

PETROVA - :tape: probably will only play one match in this tournament. fans will still remember that she did not play last year in favor of chasing her 1st title in Bangkok and the fact that she refused to play Kim Clijsters in an important Fed Cup tie this year. I believe she will probably be booed off the court after her 1R loss. :wavey:

SAFINA - she got to SF last year. it also helps that she is the daughter of one of the most influential figures in Moscow tennis and the sister of Marat. Being a top 10 player will help too. She will be a fave

CHAKVETADZE - :confused: born and raised in Moscow

ZVONAREVA - :bigcry:

KIRILENKO - well she is hot so that will help but she probably won't win a match :help:

LIKHOTSEVA - she may be playing in her last match ever at the Kremlin cup and I am sure the crowd will give her a good sendoff

VESNINA - :confused:

Oh crap.

I missed the "fan" part of "fan fave" in the subject. I thought we were voting on who would be the favorite to win the tournament.

I voted for Maria. Though, she may still be popular.

I would have voted for Elena, if I had actually READ THE SUBJECT!

You know, last year there was so much hype around her in Moscow. And what did we get? Disappointing performance. During her match vs Groenefeld half an audience was behind Anna-Lena. And when she played Safina Dinara was overwhelming crowd favourite.

But this year Maria is healthy and if she plays good she will receive deserved support for sure.

The sentimentalists will vote for Elena Dementieva. The Russians I have met in london like money, blonde hair, long legs, fame, America, dirty deeds, getting rich quick, spending cash, flounting cash, and big names. Maria Sharapova then.

Elena Dementieva is the real Russian favourite now that Anastasia is out... :hug:

You've met how many of them? 3 or 4? ;)
Whatever... I'll root for Masha but for completely different reasons. It's a pity you see only this (money, long legs etc) in her...

bellascarlett
Oct 2nd, 2006, 01:45 PM
It's Dementieva and Safina obviously. Safina I'm thinking because of her family connections (they loved focusing on Marat watching Dinara last year), Lena because she's been Russia's leading tennis lady alongside Myskina.

I'm hoping Masha turns in a wonderful perfomance all throughout the tournament, hopefully wins it. Last year, people didn't get to have to chance to cheer on her with her terrible play. :mad:

Although the crowd began cheering for Dinara Safina in her second match at the Kremlin Cup she still enjoyed the experience.

"Well, fans always root for the underdog," Maria Sharapova said after being asked if she was upset at all.

TaliaSecondServe
Oct 2nd, 2006, 09:11 PM
:confused: goldenlox, just wondering... you know so much about Masha - her words, all the facts about her. I wonder how it's possible remembering the fact that you...let's say...don't like her. I usually don't know much about players I don't like.

I remember seeing this last year and thought it was nice. What their holding spells MASHA for those who don't know. Like I said, I hope Maria does well as it will give the fans more exposure to her. I'm sure she'll have as much or even more noise coming into Moscow what with her Open win. She's their only woman player now with 2 slams. I think that will say a lot.

Maria is already BY FAR the best female russian tennis player of all time and is only 19 and at the beginning of her career. Russia will support their legend Maria the most.

Sharapova wasn't popular last year. A big part of the crowd supported Groenefeld and Safina was the huge crowd favourite when playing Maria. But that was because of Sharapova's poor form. This year everything should be different, I hope.

All Sharapova has to do is make 1 quick call to Eisenbud.
