Russia names Fed Cup team to play Italy

MOSCOW: Former US Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova will lead the Russian team against Italy in the Fed Cup semifinals next weekend. Russia captain Shamil Tarpischev on Wednesday also selected 10th-ranked Nadia Petrova, No. 23 Anna Chakvetadze, Alisa Kleybanova and rookie Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova to face the 2006 champion on clay at Castellaneta Marina, Italy. Sixth-ranked Vera Zvonareva is recovering from an injury. Russia routed China 5-0 and Italy beat France by the same score in the first round. Russia has won the Fed Cup four times and is looking for its third straight title. Russia has a 4-0 record against Italy, including a 4-0 win in the 2007 final. ap

No Dementieva? (Maybe she declined. Cannot believe she wasn't asked)
No Vesnina? Hottest player of the last few weeks other than Wozniacki.

Which 4 of those 5 will play?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
