Five of the eight seeds are Russian

Someone pointed out in another thread how evenly distributed in the draw the Russians are...and I just realized that it's because 5 out of the 6 Russians in the main draw are seeds! And they account for 5 of the 8 seeded players!

2. Myskina
3. Dementieva
5. Bovina
6. Zvonareva
8. Likhovtseva

And the only unseeded Russian, Krasnoroutskaya, is in her own section as well...none of them can meet before the quarterfinals

How 'bout these Russian girls

That really is pretty amazing! The Russian domination seems to be beginning here!!!!!! 3 of the 6 Russians are also named "Elena!" I think the winner's name will probably start with an "A" or a "Z" however! If all of them or even 5 of them made it to the quarters, that would have to be some kind of record, I would think!

Maybe they can do a "Argentina" here... with 4 semi-finalists all from Russia. :P

it would be great if they could all reach the quarters, i think they all have a chance to get that far as well.
