True, the Russians are doing well and :worship: to them, but the men are some way short of the women.

Youzhny is unlikely to make the top 10 for instance and at best Andreev, Davydenko and Youzhny to make the top 20 altogether. But 4 Russian men in the top 20 would still be mightily impressive! :)

Marat picked up the slack of the Russian women at the 2005 Australian Open. :) His magnificent title in Melbourne helps make up for the Russina's mediocre play at the Australian Open and Maria Sharapova's heartbreaking and frustrating loss to Serena Williams in the women's semifinals. Well done Marat. :D

Yeah, Aussie was disappointing for women. There were 8 Russian girls ranked in the top 20 and 2 more (Douchevina and Lineyskaya) on the rise.

Out of those 10, only 2 made it to the QF and only 1 - to the SF, where she proceeded to choke a win away. Zvonareva, Myskina and Dementieva have to be biggest disappointments. At least Petrova went out in the blaze of fire against Serena in the 4th.

Still, I have to admit that compared to the Dark Ages of tennis when there were only 1 Russian girl in the Top 20 (Zvereva in late 80s/early 90s and Kournikova in late 90's) at a time, the results of the last 12 months have been nothing short of incredible.

Btw, with Hingis coming back, you'll have:

Serena
Sharapova
Kuznetsova
Devenport
Mauresmo
Henin-Harden
Venus
Capriati
Dementieva
Myskina
Zvonareva
Petrova
Hingis
Malik

Women's tennis is as exciting as ever. If only Monica Seles and Mary Pierce still had something to offer, it would be even better. Long live WTA.

Let's hope Hingis really comes back.
