USA v Germany tickets
Tickets are on sale now for the 2008 Fed Cup First Round tie between USA and Germany.

This match up will take place on February 2-3 at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club in California and sees three-time Grand Slam champion Lindsay Davenport make her first singles appearance in the United States since the 2006 US Open.

The former World No. 1 made a remarkable comeback to the game last season following an 11-month absence to have her first child, with a 13-1 record in three singles events following the US Open, winning titles at Bali, Indonesia, and Quebec City, Canada.

“I am honoured to represent my country on the U.S. Fed Cup team once again,” said Davenport. “My Fed Cup appearances have given me some of the best memories of my career and I look forward to La Jolla and helping our team advance to the semifinals.”

Tickets for the two days can be purchased by calling (888) 334-USTA (8782) or online at www.ticketmaster.com with prices ranging from $60 to $300.

Re: 2008 Fed Cup Draw

Sharapova named in Fed Cup team
Maria Sharapova has been named in the Russian team to play in their first round tie against Israel. in Tel Aviv.

Russia captain Shamil Tarpishchev has also selected world No. 6 Anna Chakvetadze, 16th-ranked Dinara Safina, Elena Vesnina and doubles specialist Elena Likhovtseva. World No. 2 Svetlana Kuznetsova is missing the trip due to personal reasons.

Tarpishchev said he would select the four players for the February 2-3 tie during his team's training camp in Israel. "They have (Shahar) Peer ranked in the world top 20 and they will be playing at home, so it won't be an easy match by any means," said Tarpishchev.

Sharapova, hopes to finally make her Fed Cup debut for Russia after being forced to miss last year's final against Italy because of a shoulder injury.

Re: 2008 Fed Cup Draw

Italy select Errani
The Italian Federation have announced that World No. 65 Sara Errani has been called up by Italy for the first time for the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas tie against Spain.

The 20-year-old will join Fed Cup veterans Tathiana Garbin, Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone in the World Group first round match in Naples on February 2-3.

Italy, who won the competition in 2006 and were runners-up to Russia last year, are without Mara Santangelo and Roberta Vinci because of injury.

"This is still a strong team with the new addition of Sara Errani, who has done very well recently. Like all Fed Cup matches it has to be considered difficult," Italy coach Corrado Barazzutti told FIT's website.

Re: 2008 Fed Cup Draw

Slovaks name Hantuchova
Daniela Hantuchova has been named in the Slovakian squad for Fed Cup tie against the Czech Republic, although it is unsure where or not she will actually play. She will make a final decision once the Australian Open is over.

"Daniela promised us last year to represent at least at one match at Fed Cup. We hope it will be this attractive game with the Czechs," captain Mojmir Mihal said in a news conference in Bratislava

The other Slovak players joining the current world No. 9 are Dominika Cibulkova, Magdalena Rybarikova and Janette Husarova. Kristina Kucova, a will stand in for Hantuchova if she decides not to make the trip.
