I knew this was going to be a bad tournament for the Russians. But today was even worse than I ever imagined. Myskina continued her terrible play in the grand slams. Lina didn't even show up against Mauresmo. And Kafelnikov and Youzhny lost 5 set matches to players they should be able to beat just playing mediocre tennis. What a disaster! Did I leave anyone out? This is a Russian tennis blood bath if there ever was one!

Let's hope Bovina, Zvonareva and the Russian juniors pick up the slack.

Fresh, if you see Nastya before she leaves, can you ask if she intends to play Birmingham now ??

Our best claycourters are still in. Hopefully Kolya will beat the Shrimp.. And Vera and Nadya are still in. Both, as well as Elena B. should be able to reach the Round of 16.

Unfortunately the worst possible scenario has happened at the 2003 French Open for the Russians. But Bovina, Petrova and Znonareva have good chances to win tomorrow! And Nadia has big time potential!

Have fun Fresh!

Poor Lina!
But it is good experience for her. It will happen again, and maybe next time she will cope better.

Anyway, if Davydenko beats that little twerp I call Chip (for the gigantic chip on his shoulder), all else will be forgotten.

Have fun, fresh!

Eggy, I think she left today. She won²t play doubles. But her schedulle for the grass season stays the same if just caught bad cold. If her illness is something more serious than that will change.

So far as expected. I expected Nadya to win and I hoped for Elena to win, but I didn't have high expectations for that. But Vera should win.

Hi guys!
Sorry, at the 4th day I was already a bit tired of tennis, so I`ve been at the stadium up to the end of the Davydenko`s match and then left to see Paris (despite I don`t like that city ).

First to mention I was very surprised when heard that Lena Bovina has lost. I`ve been to her match for 5 games in the beginning, and she seemed to be in control of it. Rita Grande`s father (he looks much alike Mansour Bahrami) was at this time very nervous and was trying to encourage his daughter. I thought it would be an easy cake for Lena and went to see the ending of the Kolya`s match. I guess you all have seen it. He lost it, not Shrimp won. Kolya acknowledged it after the match. He said that he had made many mistakes and if he had played up to 100 % he would crush Hewitt.

I also went to see Lina and Alyona playing against the Americain girls. Lina was the leader of the team. She commanded the strategy and was marvelous at the net. I didn`t want to go to the stade on Friday, but now I will go to see them playing against Kim and Ai. I just wonder how many spectators won`t be able to see that match because of the small court?

Good for Nadia for marching straight through with no letdown after her big win.

Am PO'd @ Davydenko, though! Now we still have to look at Chip!

thanx again fresh

so you didn't see any of Vera or Nadya either
good to see Lina leading the doubles

Lena B did have match in control but she blew it
then faded in 2nd after making a recovery.
disappointing but hardly suprising considering she missed nearly all the clay season

Another masterpiece from Russian media:

http://www.gazeta.ru/sport/2003/05/a_34654.shtml

"Ну а единственная из проросших русских семян Вера Звонарёва сойдётся в матче следующей стадии с испанкой Марией Санчес-Лоренцо, в первом круге надругавшейся над Еленой Дементьевой. "
