Well, we've all been talking/watching the regular girls, Masha, Ana, Nicole, the Williams sisters, Justine, Amelie, etc, etc, etc...


But there are other girls just as hot, just as good tennis players that we never see, so here goes a thread to talk about them.


Benesova: 




Alona Bondarenko:



Marta Domachowska:



Michaella Krajicek:



This is just start we'll see these girls soon up in the ranking, [:D]

Agreed. Don't forget Azarenka and Urszula, the younger sister Radwanska. I would add some more. Roland Garros and Wimbledon through the USO, I've been tracking some slightly younger ones, some just out of the Juniors and others who will be coming on the WTA Tour in 2008. I'd include Alizé Cornet (FRA), Michelle Larcher de Brito (POR), Oxana Kalashnikova (GEO), Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS), Ksenia Milevskaya (BLR) and Ksenia Lykina (RUS).

I think it was Krajicek's marathon match against Masha in LA, that wore her out prior to her match with Dementieva.  She is a real fighter and we will see a lot more of her in the future.

Saw Radwanska against Kuznetsova.


She didn't dare to make the show like against Maria.

Yeah, trying those antics on Sveta would be like trying to disturb a stone wall.

Personally what Krajicek needs urgently is HAIR, she looked SO cute last few years with her long hair.


Tennis talking, indeed, she needs lots of experience, perhaps if she keeps going to GS' and playing top tens, eventually she'll reach the top.

Agnes Szavay, peronally, one of my three surprises in USO, where does this girl come from? I see her soon on top, though we shuld wait till next year, we all know that after the Christmas holidays something weird happens and the year starts completly different from the way it's supposed to be.


Agnes Szavay, what do you think?

In a word, impressive. Where from--straight out of the Juniors. See, this is another reason I get irritated with the commentators. I noticed her when she kicked ass at her home tourney in Budapest in April. (semis) Then she won that Palermo tournament and distinguished herself elsewhere on the Tour. Gets to the US Open and the talking heads are all, "Who the heck is this? Never heard of her..."


Hey, if these "pros" don't follow the players as well as I do casually online, why should I credit their supposed "wisdom" at all?


But Agnes is hot, singles & doubles. See if you can find her WTA site blog from Bad Gastein (July, I think). Her writing is cute and funny. She talks the pro talk and then she gets all "Let me tell you about what my little brother did..." LOL

I do mean her tennis, though Ms Szavay does have some endowments...

Exactly Paul...they said the same about  Radwanska... Who...never heard of her.. Well, she was Wimbledon Junior champ in 2005 and French Open Junior champ in 2006.  I think she showed her pedigree back then.

Did you know there's a third sister Radwanska--still in the Juniors? Pretty soon the commentators will have to clean up that nasty edge on the way they pronounce teenager. [;)]

Well, both Szavay and Radwanska did great in Juniors, but from a long time ago I've stopped acring about who won what in juniors, I don't know why but certain tennis players seem to crush and burne once they step up in the GS', though these two really did an impressive tournament, I stay more with Szavay, I must give some credit to Radwanska for beating Masha, however, I think that Masha kind of put some help to Radwanska to make her win... i would like to see more of Radwanska.

Well, I don't really follow all the torunaments like you do and I only heard of Szavay when she entered in USO and heard her story, personally, own of my ESPN commentors is a Szavay's fan and he gave lots of credit to her.


About her way of talking, it's kind of funny, I think every girl has that, Amelie perhaps doesn't LOL.

Other girls: Along with Dushevina, add Safina and Zvonareva to the list of those unexpectedly raising the level of their game for Moscow. Vera has noticably toned up. In a demonstration of technical expertise and fine movement, she overwhelmed Radwanska--who again didn't attempt any more  cutesy gamesmanship. Overall, the Russians have swept others aside and are now playing each other--so count on these matches to get longer and slower. lol

Zvonareva is a solid player - she beat Maria this year remember and reached #9 at one point. One of the best matches I've seen this year was the final at the tournament in New Zealand here between Zvonareva and Jankovic - down to the wire but JJ edged it out in 3...
