Well, there are two Russian women in the French Open semis. No surprise there. But which ones? Sharapova? Dementieva? Myskina? Kuznetsova? Zvonareva? Etcetera?<br />
Niet. This time it’s Petrova and, err, Likhovtseva. Who? Exactly.<br />
This is getting silly. How many players does one country need? It’s like some interminable Chekov play with endless insipid women pining for Moscow and wandering about.<br />
Please, please, please God could Mary Peirce and Justine H-H win, so we can have an interesting final? Another dull-as-steppe all-Russian match would be too much.
