Re: Decline in Russian tennis? No Russian players in top 20 WTA right now.
What's worse is that there are maybe 150 solid players in the WTA now, and not many are Russian!
For instance, Kuznetsova is #89, Makarova, Cirstea, Bacsinszky and Begu, are #90, #92, #104 and #110 respectively.
And what happened to Timea Babos? She ranks #137 now. Monica Niculescu, even worse, ranks #140. Yanina Wickmayer is the 152th in the world.
