I think Elena "darling" Dementieva will do the best of the Russian women, on the WTA tour. On the junior tour, I think Maria the "Russian Lynx" Sharapova, will play the most impressive tennis among the Russian junior girls.

Anna K or Elena D will do best. <br />Hopefully Anna K will win first title, and get back into top 15 where she belongs. <br />Lina K will make strides to top 15 by year ends. 2003 is when she will be top 10.<br />Myskina will become atleast top 30-40.<br />Svetlana K will break into top 100.<br />I predict Safina will make her big splash in 2003, not 2002.
Likhovtseva has been for a long time the only reference, why should she stop being it right now???<br />If you look to Anna or Elena they haven't won a tournament, so instead of support so much them you should divide between that three!!!<br />I only hope that Russian and Spanish girls will finish the power of the States and leave tennis as it always have been: with European victories!!!!<br />The best Americans have been Europeans!!!Don't forget that!!!
