Ten Russian Female Tennis Players Rank among the 100 Top

Ten Russians have been placed among the best 100 in the new rating of the women's tennis association (WTA). Anastasia Myskina, ranking 11th with 2,245 points, leads the team, from which two other players Yelena Bovina (17th, 1,493.25) and Yelena Dementyeva (20th, 1,425) have occupied places within the top 20.

The remaining seven Russians figure like this: Tatiana Panova (26th, 1,212), Yelena Likhovtseva (29th, 1,018.75), Vera Zvonareva (39th, 838), Svetlana Kuznetsova (41st, 807), Lina Krasnorutskaya (60th, 585), Dinara Safina (62nd, 574.5) and Anna Kurnikova (67th, 536).
