Myskina won't play Fed Cup this year

MYSKINA OUT OF FED CUP: Anastasia Myskina, currently the 12th-ranked player in the world, said she decided Wednesday morning she will not play in the Fed Cup for Russia this year.

"(The commitment) is too much for me," Myskina said. "This year I want to play for myself. I put a lot of energy into the team. I've played every time they asked me, and I'm always ready to play if they need me, but it's been too much."

Russia has won the last two Fed Cups and Myskina has been a star on those teams. In those two years, Myskina went 9-3 in singles matches and 1-0 in doubles matches. Russia is slated to play Belgium on April 22-23.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

As a Myskina fan, I support her decision. It's ironic that I JUST had the Tennis Channel become available and Fed Cup will be broadcast there. It would have given me a rare opportunity to watch Nastya play on television where I live. Oh well, that's the way it goes. I'm looking forward to Nastya focusing her effort more on her individual goals because I think she burned herself out a bit in the past with too many obligations.

Nastya I ordered tickets for two reasons : Kim and you (Bibi, I'll pay you soon don't worry )

Sweet as Belgian Chocolate, Bubbly as Champagne






"When you do your best, it's always good enough" - Kim Clijsters

"No matter what happens, you have to try to stay positive, bad things can happen, but if you try to stay positive, something positive will come out of it…I believe that everything happens for a reason" - Kim Clijsters


"Goed is de ergste vijand van zeer goed" - Pascal Smet

"Als je iemand idealiseert, verlies je het contact met de werkelijkheid"

"Ca s’apprend par la souffrance, ça s’apprend par les déceptions, ça s’apprend par la densité du mal que ça te fait, plus ça te fait mal et plus ça te fait grandir. Y a des moments où tu te dis je ne vais pas le supporter, ça, ça fait trop mal, et pourtant tu passes au travers."

yeah because people like you keep making it that way by not being interested in it... if people got interested, it'd build a history!
