Fed Cup is coming to my town!

I was so excited to find out that the semifinal match between the USA and Russia will be played in Birmingham, AL. We had the 1st round Davis Cup between USA and Switzerland (no Roger) last year and now we get the Fed Cup. I'm keeping all fingers and toes crossed that I'll see Venus, Serena, and/or Maria...but if not, I'll survive. I'm just excited to see some live tennis!

Re: Fed Cup is coming to my town!

Sveta probably won't play as she's defending Stuttgart the same week. Also, she saved Tarpi's ass in R1 so i think she's done enough.

Re: Fed Cup is coming to my town!

But Sveta wants to play. She tweeted that she loves Fed Cup.
And she missed this one in 2007, Russia winning in US
That was Nadia and ACHAK

Re: Fed Cup is coming to my town!

Another reason i think she won't play is because the tie is right smack in the middle of the clay season, probably her strongest phase. The Americans won't put the tie on clay because Russia have many great clay-courters. They'll probably put it on fast HC which makes it a tough transition for Sveta.

Re: Fed Cup is coming to my town!

There were a lot of reasons for Sveta not to go to Serbia. Especially when she felt disrespected by Tarpischev.
But her coach, Larisa, is Tarpischev's asst, and she's going to be Alabama bound, not waiting around in Stuttgart.
Anyway, Stuttgart is small potatoes.

Re: Fed Cup is coming to my town!

I expect:
USA:
-Serena ()
-Oudin
-Glatch or Mattek-Sands depending on the form of Glatch
-Huber
RUS:
-Kuznetsova
-Dementieva or Petrova
-Pavlyuchenkova
-Kleybanova

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.

Re: Fed Cup is coming to my town!

Beth over Glatch.
Venus won't play. 90% sure, you never know though
I would like to think we can win without a Williams Sister, but we probably can't so please play Serena

The Davis Cup match was indoors, so that might strengthen our chances especially if Sveta plays. I doubt it will be indoors though for Fed Cup. I don't expect Dementieva or Sharapova. So really Sveta and Alisa are the hurdles we will probably have to face
