The Number 1 Russian?
As impressive a win over Lindsay is, she's not getting to number 1 anytime soon. But obviously, she has a good shot a become number one in mother Russia. Myskina has a lot of pride, and always plays her best when her compatriots start to upstage her. Dementieva doesn't want to look like an ebarrasment, and Zvonareva is starting to play to her ability.

Sharapova, with the win over LD is now the number 4 Russian, behind Kuznetsova, Dementieva and Myskina.

When can she reach #1?

Myskina is way better. And if they played, Myskina would win because she can hit good shots, and chase all of Sharapova's shots down(unlike Davenport). Sharapova will not be the number 1 russian ever.

By next wimbledon after Elena and Myskina lose their FO points. Then she will have to defend these finalist/winner points. :tape:

I don't think she will be reaching #1 anytime soon. This is ONE good result in a big tournament. Unless she starts blowing people off the court with the confidence I know she got from this match.

when I say #1, i mean in Russia.

Sharapova wont get into the top 4 with that game. And once everyone is healthy, not the top 5 or 6 either.

I think with good movement and who can withstand her power is gonna give her trouble. Don´t think she´s the best russian just yet.

right, but Justine has more variety, moves much better
same with Kim.
Serena hits harder, serves better, moves better
Venus hits harder, serves (well first serve) better, moves better
Thats the top 4.

I definitely think she will get to #1. She's improving very fast and climbing the rankings like hell. If she can improve her net game, movement, and add a slice here and there she will get there sooner than some may think.

She still needs more time to really develop her game. Once everyone is back and playing at the top of their game, I think that it will be difficult for Sharapova considering how good Henin-Hardenne, Clijsters, Venus and the top ten players are. She wants to be number one, but it will be hard for her to do so.

Nobody hits harder. Have you watched her play? And the angles she hits with that reverse forehand :eek:
