I have a feeling that next year Maria will join the Russian Fed Cup team and plays along with Myskina. They will probably reconcile and go on to win another title. The team will consist of Myskina, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, and Zvonareva. This combination would give Tarpishev an excuse to exclude Dementieva, since M, S, and K are all slam winners. Zvonareva will be included as a doubles partner of Myskina. Their success at this year's final justifies that. Likhovtseva will not be needed anymore.
