Russians won little tournaments upsetting higher ranked players- peoiple said they are second best. They won big tourneys upsetting No1s- people said they aren't the best. They won their firsdt GS- 'that's a fluke, they are second rate'.
Now they have the second final, again beating so-called 'best players'. What are people saying now? I'd say that a fluke can never repeat itself so many times: a a fluke that repeats itself thrice is already a rule...

They are now first rate players.
Any objections?

If 17 y.o. Sharky wins 6-8 games, she'll have every right to feel very good about her run. If she wins a set, then great about it. (If She Somehow wins the match, I hope she doesn't have a spontaneous Orgasm On court). :eek:

If you put the russians -v- the active Americans, yes they are second rate.

Add up the GS titles tier 1's and 2's of the leading ruskies -v- amer. they come up way short.

Shouldn't we wait til they win at least 2 slams? Does this include only Shaparova or the others with got kicked out before the 2nd week started?

I absolutely cannot phantom that happening. Sharapova will play into Serena's game and will be eaten alive. sure she will get in a few angles here and there but with that flat ball????

And all that speed Sharapova would be giving Serena - this will be a wash.

Hoping Serena pulls this through but you can't underestimate anyone and Maria wants this bad. Truthfully it's not crazy anymore to lose to an unseeded player let alone one who is.

Yeah. Now, compare the ages of the Russians to the ages of the leading Americans. Now, think where the leading Americans will be in five years' time.

Of those leading Americans, only Serena is not in a visible decline. Of those in decline, only Venus has time enough to turn it around. However, every one of the up-and-coming Russians still has the peak of their career ahead of them.

Let's put the quote in context. I was specifically telling Ballbuster that Sharky would still have Achieved Alot just by making the final and playing credibly. ;) (Besides, like Monica and Serena, she has mini-orgasms all match long). :p
