No troubled water

7am at the club, the pool is empty. The calm water feels eerie .. ha ha ha .. no, feels great. Dive in for a few laps.

The blond dolls 娃娃们

Serena won over Lucie Safarova (4 February 1987; Brno, Czech) 7-6 and 6-4. She didn’t look good but managed to win.
Over the years, since Serena turned pro in 1995, there are scores of players, especially women from the former eastern block, Russia in particular. Anna Kournikova (7 June 1981, Moscow) is the same age as Serena and they both turned pro in 1995. Anna never won a singles title while Serena 17 grand slam titles alone.

多伦多的 Rogers Cup 几年前去看过,地方还可以. 加拿大除了冰球还是冰球. 多伦多的冰球博物馆挺好的 … 小威赢了Safarova. 苏联的娃娃娃们 如洪水猛兽 进军网球 人数之多没有其它国家可以比美 但是成绩马马虎虎,没有几个大满贯 她们的总和远不及 小威风一个人. 大概是人种杂吧?… 奇怪:为什么普京被这么看好?[疑问]

Va sounds as dolls or babies in Chinese. Those 金发碧眼的娃娃们 don’t really amount to much. If my counting is right, since 1995 – they won total of 8, five are from Maria Sharapova:

  • Aussie Open: Sharapova 2008
  • French Open: Myskina 2004; Kuznetsova 2009, Sharapova 2012 & 2014
  • Wimbledon: Sharapova 2004
  • US Open: Kuznetsova 2004, Sharapova 2006

Russians are coming, Russian are coming, turns out to be unnecessary.

The 娃娃军 (some are not Russian), in random order:

  1. Anna Kournikova
  2. Maria Sharapova
  3. Ekaterina Makarova
  4. Lucie Safarova
  5. Svetlana Kuznetsova
