Who will have the best 2002 of these young Russians. <br />For right now, I'll go with Anna, but I dont know bc her ranking is so low to start off the year. Other than that I'm guessing Elena or Lina. Here's my picks for their year end ranking<br />12. Anna Kournikova<br />13. Elena Dementieva<br />20: Lina Krasnoroutskaya<br />24: Iroda Tulyaganova<br />28: Nadia Petrova<br />It will be interesting for me to see, so I want your input.

I think Iroda and Anna will do best Anna if she plays well enough should be in the top 30!

Iroda will be close to top 10 in my opinion and will have some great wins!

I think Anna will have the most impressive wins, but may not be the highest ranked at the end of the year.

Hopefully, we'll also see Anastasia Myskina doing well too!

I'm not that familiar with all their games, but I like Nadia the best, so I'm gonna go with her. Hopefully she will get her mental game together.

GOOD LUCK NADIA IN 2002!!!!

I think if Anna is healthy she will have the best results. However, ranking might be hard to finish at the top considering what her ranking is right now. We'll just have to see.

I think Lina will imrpove her rank more, she had some good experiences that hopefully she will learn from. She will be able to play more events aswell which should also help her to get a bit more consistency in her weekly results (it's hard to play a few events, get in good form, then have to stop playing for a month and try and start back at square one with the match play over and over).

Elena I think will also show some better results if she's not injured, she had a bit of a rough year but she also showed signs of what she can produce.

Nadia and Iroda, though I think they ahve good games, I'm not sure if I see them as players who will make a huge jump past where they're at. Room for Nadia to make top 30, maybe outside top 20 if she is stronger mentally, but I don't see any further than that, same with Iroda unless she can become much more consistent. Had some good results here and there, but too many dreadful ones aswell.

thanx for your opinions <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

<br />I'm hoping that all are successful in 2002.

good luck to them all.

Iroda is from Uzbekistan but she's still got Russian heritage.

of course anna will in the end be the best russian player

and elena bovina??? she should atleast be a steady top 50 rather than coming and going every other week or so(atleast that was the patter near the end of the season)

petrova, yes please!

Anna K. will probably have no trouble entering the top 20 again, and probably float near top 10 or in I am hoping. Petrova really looks promising to me, and crack the top 30. Dementieva will have a better season but still probably going to be so inconsistent. Krasnoroutskaya will still be going in and out of the ranks and tournaments. Tulyaganova and Likhosteva will be in the top 20-30<br />'s
