    A poll just for mindless conjecturing. I don't think any of them have any realistic chances in the near future.

    Sadly Dementieva wont ever see an opportunity to be in a slam finals again.

    Pardon????? There seems to be someone missing here. She is above and beyond the women on the list.

    I like Vera a lot. Do you guys think she has a game to win big time? What does she need to improve to be a contender. She is very sweet girl. I spoke to her once, she was very nice.

    Whoever chose Kirilenko must be using the wrong head to make that decision. She ought to play dubs w/Sharapova

    I don't understand why people think Kirilenko has a great future. She plays like Hingis. That sort of game won't cut it anymore. The girls now need more power especially with the serve and I don't think Kirilenko will ever have that. She isn't even as mentally tough or as competitive.

    Should've clarified in my post ... next Russian woman to break through and win her first slam.

    Meaning Myskina and Sharapova (if that's whom you're thinking of) are off the list.

    Most posters on this board are male. Kirilenko is by far the most attractive woman on the list.

    The vote is mere wish fulfilment. We just want to see pictures of Kirilenko wearing skimpy tennis kit all over the newspapers.

    Kirilenko, come on. She had one good match against Serena, but what else has she done. Petrova obviously has the best chance to win a major out of those. She has the power to dictate play against just about anyone.

    I heard Petrova's a head case though. I think Vera's just as talented as any of those on that list.
