Exclamation Myskina, Dementieva To Be on Russian Fed Cup Team vs. USA

According to Nastya's post-match interview, she and Elena D will be on the Russian squad. She said that she will be in Moscow as part of the team even if she realized that she may not be selected to play.

This is not really a surprise as Nastya was responsible for winning Fed Cup last year and Dementieva carried Russia past Italy earlier in the QF.

Who do you think will comprise the remainder of the team? I think it will be Sveta and Elena L (for doubles)

I look at people like Andre Agassi and Monica Seles, and of course what they did. I was always amazed at how Monica came back after so long and did so well. I try to keep that as an inspiration. He who doubts loses. (Serena Williams)

This is a helper for the US!! If the US can get Lindsay and Venus/Serena, then the US is for sure in the final!!

Likhovtseva will probably be on the team for doubles (as she's played with a few of the Russian players as it is.) Probably Svetlana.

Yeah, walkover.. If by the time of the match some of their players are actually able to walk.. One has thigh that hurts, the other has knee, the third has ankle.. Chances of all of them being healthy are .. not that good..

"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."

May I care to ask how many Slams either of your players have won? 1!! Yeah, Lindsay:3, Venus:4, and Serena:7!! It won't be easy, but these players are defiantly beatable!! Neither is in great form. But I guess you could say that about Venus and Serena too.

Yeah sorry about that, might have seemed more agressive than it was.
Just saying that it won't be easy for either of them.
And indeed all of them are defeatable, Russia and USA alike.

Thank you, Elena
