    Golovin is a great pick, shtexas. And cats, Myskina has an excellent record against fellow Russians... Perhaps the best of all of them. (Maybe 3m can tell us for sure.) But I know it's darn good, and I KNOW she has wins over Sharapova...

    Myskina is 3-1 against Sharapova, but they haven't played since the 2004 YEC which is when Sharapova got her first win in against her. I'm pretty sure that Myskina also has an edge in her H2H with Kuznetsova, Dementieva, Petrova, and Zvonereva.

    Yup, I just checked it on the WTA website.
    Myskina vs. Sharapova 3-1
    Petrova 3-2
    Kuznetsova 3-1
    Zvonereva 3-1
    Dementieva 9-6

    Go Tatiana! Go!

    This reminds me of Ginepri in that USO qf last year. I had to sweat it out.
