Davenport out of Fed Cup contest

Davenport out of Fed Cup contest

World number one Lindsay Davenport has pulled out of the United States team for the Fed Cup semi-final against Russia in Moscow this weekend.

Davenport has failed to recover from the back injury she suffered during her defeat to team-mate Venus Williams in last weekend's Wimbledon final.

Jill Craybas, who beat Serena Williams in Wimbledon's third round before losing to Venus, comes into the squad.

Venus, doubles star Corina Morariu and Mashona Washington complete the team.

"I'm very disappointed that Lindsay would not be able to support our team," said US captain Zina Garrison.

The Russians are missing US Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova and French Open semi-finalist Nadia Petrova because of injuries.

Last year's French Open champion Anastasia Myskina and beaten finalist Elena Dementieva will lead the home team.

Meanwhile France's Virginie Razzano will miss the other semi-final against Spain because of an ankle injury.

Her place will be taken by Severine Beltrame, who had been named as the squad's fifth player.

Amelie Mauresmo, Nathalie Dechy and Mary Pierce are the other members of the line-up.

was expecting this anyway...

Venus Williams (The Queen) , Maria Sharapova (The Diva) , Lindsay Davenport (The Legend) , Jelena Janković (The Exotic Beauty) , Serena Williams (The Princess) , Ana Ivanovic (the REAL Promise)

"People said, we weren't going to make it because we were from the 'hood. … People didn't believe in us because of where we came from." Venus Williams.

That's fucked up since she recruited the sisters to come and now only 1/3 of the dream team is able to make it. dammit!

Go USA, anyway.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

This means Venus & Corina have to carry the team.

Corina will probably just play doubles which means
Venus will most likely play with her and Venus
will have to to both singles and doubles.

I just don't see either Jill or mashona
doing a thing.

Go USA!

Anyone think Corina may actually play singles?
I'd take her over the other two.

I would have thought they'd have used Meghann Shaughnessy or Lisa Raymond, presuming both made themselves available. At least with their good doubles records there'd be a chance of snatching a 3-2 win.

Very predictable. I was sure about that more than a week ago.. It will be very tough for Venus. The surface will be very slow. A lot of running will have to be done. Two running singles matches and a doubles match in just two days with a very hostile crowd.. Could be tough..

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