The Russian Generation is definitely playing better and better each tournament, and now 4 of them are in the QF of the Tier 1 Toronto Tournament! :) Interestingly they will not square off each other in QF, so a theoretical possibility looms - the 2 semifinals may be all-Russian affairs! ;)

But realistically who do you think can get into the semis? Here are the matchups:

Lina Krasnoroutskaya v Katarina Srebotnik
Paola Suarez v Vera Zvonareva [10]

Elena Dementieva [9] v Amelie Mauresmo [3]
Elena Bovina [12] v Justine Henin-Hardenne [2]

I think Lina and Vera can pull through, but I hope Elena D can get some revenge over Amelie as well :drool:. Good luck to Lena B too!:)

Any thoughts?

May Amelie :worship: win over Elena D, but not quite as convincingly as last time.
I know! That last time, a double bagel in Paris, had to be humiliating for Elena! :eek: She's had some really good results since then, notably winning Amelia Island, so she may have some more confidence than she did in February since Elena really didn't start out the year that well. I would love to see her in the finals here.

Still, I haven't seen Amelie play since that awful match against Serena in Paris. I would love to see her win this tournament and be match fit for the Open.

Okay, so I'm torn! :lol: I want both ladies to win because they are so deserving! :)

i think they all have a chance. lina k is playing well and srebotnik although she can play good tennis i think lina will be too good for her. vera has a very good chance with her form. dementieva has a chance because mauresmo hasn't played to much and she seems to start off a bit slow so if elena can take advantage of that then she may well make an upset. bovina also has a chance because she has come back to form, if she plays well she has a very good chance but even with her playing well this would be a 50/50.
