The 2005 Australian Open

Next week is the first major of the year.
And the only major without a current Russian champion.

Here's the commitment list -

Women's tennis is still a mess as far as injured players go. The short offseason didn't do much to heal the injured players from 2004.

If Mauresmo and Davenport are knocked out of the AO earlier then the semis, I think that means in the semis Sharapova could meet Dementieva and Myskina could meet Kuznetsova. There's a very good chance it could be an all russian final.

One problem is..I don't see a single in form Russian player.. Dementieva seems to be in the best form of all, and we know that she always starts year slowly.. But then.. big AO matches are two weeks away.. That's a lot of time.. Kuznetsova really played nothing extraordinary before US Open.. And so did Nastya before RG..

Don't expect alot from the Russian players. Let's hope some players will excell themselves at the AO. Yes, that's what happened to A. Myskina at RG and Sveta at US-Open. Indeed, hardly one Russian to be in form. Best in form Russian would say N. Petrova since her impressive win vs. D. Hantuchova.

Lena D. is playing well. Sveta and Maria haven't played.
Anastasia's loss was surprising. But she did that before the FO.

Winning a major is never easy.
The draw will be out later today. One match at a time.

i'm very excited about the australian open draw!!! i can't wait to see it!! imo, russians have a very good chance to win this grand slam especially elena dementieva (really on fire) and maria sharapova (they played a very close match at hong kong )
i'll be also very interested to see young russians like chakvetadze,makiri, linetskaya and yakimova (if she qualifies) make their aus open debut!!! udachi all russians!! ( but especially my bepa!!! ) hope there will not be a terrible heat

Elena D is playing well right now. In a very strong position to take the singles title and in the doubles final at sydney.

Thing is, she hasn't hit her peak yet, which bodes well. Lets hope this peaking will take place for 7 singles matches at the AO. the girl has worked so hard, on her serve and game. It'd be great to see it pay off at the years 1st major

They are all working hard.
For Lena, getting past the first round, and working her way into the tournament, is the important thing.
Lena lost in the first round of the AO the last 2 years.
This year - she's in the mix for world #1.

There's a lot to gain for several players in Melbourne.
