Katia? Evgenia? Maria? I just wanna know, because I love finesse players. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I know Dinara and most of the girls will be if not already power hitters.

Well, most of Russian players are a mix of power and finesse. Myskina has more finesse, less power, Kournikova has lots of both finesse and power. Dementieva is more powerful, but she can also hit amazing slices and volleys.

From the next wave.. Well, Sharapova certainly has to be a finesse player, Safina, I am not so sure, judging by her brother, she'll have some finesse too.

Even though Evgenia Koulikovskaya is not an up and comer, she is certainly a finesse player. I would think Maria the "Russian Lynx" Sharapova is a finesse player. Partly due to her fragile build. But I hear she can hammer the ball at times. too. And she's a slasher as well. Like Anna Kournikova. I prefer finesse to power. But power wins on the WTA tour. Not finesse. Unless you're Martina Hingis. And there is only one Martina.

Vera Zvonareva , Galya Fokina are two who play with a bit of power mixed with some finesse.

Galya can spin some webs with her forehand then suddenly let it rip.
