The only real intrigue going on this week in Moscow, other than the mayor’s bold claim that he will create a “snow-less winter”, will be which of the remaining ladies with a fighting chance of making it to Doha will prevail at this week’s Kremlin Cup.
Jelena Jankovic, Agnieska Radwanska, and Vera Zvonareva are all competing for the final spot to Doha. Jankovic is defending champion at the event so all the pressure will be on her to not only defend but somehow outlast the other two ladies.
The men are also playing in Moscow this week but the stakes are not as high. Nikolay Davydenko is playing (of course) and will meet Marat Safin in the first round. Good luck with that Kolya.
And let’s not forget the return of Kim Clijsters who will show up in Luxembourg for her first post U.S. Open win event. She could face her fellow finalist Caroline Wozniacki who is also playing the event.
Who do you think will be that last to qualify for Doha?
