Feel sort of same way. We'll see how long Dinara's form will last; I hope for a long time. On the other hand Elena follows closely and Svetlana has almost everything she needs to be back with everyone else. Don't kid yourself; it is a strong team!

Sharapova. There's no question. Her talent is undeniable, whether the wins or losses every week.

Re: Who's the best russian player afterall?

3 different Russians were in slam finals in the last year.
Right now Dinara has been winning the titles, but I think Elena can make it 4 different Russians in slam finals in 12 months, in NY

Re: Who's the best russian player afterall?

It's a question I maybe don't think of in how it's phrased here, but comparing the top Russian girls and who does what the best and what they're capable of at their respective peak has always fascinated me.

Simply put, with results, Sharapova is the clear best. On level of talent (there are so many different ways to define talent, but I'll try not to go overboard there), I would have to say Kuznetsova. That said, Myskina, Zvonareva, and Petrova I would also list extremely high on the "talent" radar, and I may even put Myskina above Kuznetsova, but her serve and volleys are better, so I must give the edge to Sveta.

Purely objective:
1. Sharapova
2. Kuznetsova
3. Myskina
4. Dementieva
5. Safina

Re: Who's the best russian player afterall?

Well it's definitely not Dementieva, or Chakvetadze,
Zvonareva has times when she plays well and then times when she just sucks.
Safina and Kuznetsova are tied in my opinion and even if Dinara is in Sharapova's head, she still isn't as consistent against other players.
So, definitely Sharapova.
