Lina Krasnoroutskaya, Elena Bovina, Nadia Petrova
Which do u think is the most talented of these three Russians who came up the ranks together in 2001, Nadia and Lina have very similar careers, look at their 2001 and the fact they were injured through 2002, my pick for most talented is

1.Lina K
2.Nadia P
3.Elena B

i haven't seen lina play a singles match so i can't comment on her but i have seen the other 2. nadia has the bigger serve but has trouble with her movement especially when trying to get to drop shots and i think that will hold her back from more than anything. elena has a biggish serve, big groundies like nadia i'm not sure about her movement, it's pretty good at the baseline (like nadia) but i haven't seen her chase down drop shots or anything so i'm not sure. both can volley, elena can serve volley, nadia should be able to with her serve but from what i've seen she doesn't serve volley much. mentally nadia is very strong onc she is in a match but then so is elena but they need to be in the match otherwise they are both gone (as their inconsistent results have shown). i think elena b has more potential, not sure about talent though. honestly i haven't seen enough of them to really comment and be accurate. their games are very similar.

Elena B and Nadia are legit, because they have the better serve. Elena can play some mean serve and volley, but her lateral and forward movement is let´s say "suspect."

i´m not so high on Lina, ´cause she has the same weakness as her doubles partner Elena D: she can´t serve for her life.

I think they are all very diffrent so its ahrd to pick one out and say HER. I think Nadia has the best all round game though. Lina lacks power, in certain aspects, and Elenas movement is very poor.
