Smile Lena D. on Maria Sharapova's Fed Cup plans

taken from Reuters:

Dementieva welcomed the announcement that U.S. Open champion Maria Sharapova wanted to join Russia's Fed Cup campaign next season.

Russia have been drawn at home against Spain in the first round in April.

"If she (Sharapova) plays it's going to be very helpful for the team," said Dementieva. "She's a very strong player and we have a lot of chances to win if she's playing."

Anastasia Myskina once said she would refuse to play if Sharapova's father Yuri was present.

But Dementieva dismissed the idea of unrest in the Russian camp.

"I don't see any problems with her father," said Dementieva.

"He's an emotional guy but it is nothing to do with his daughter. Maria is a nice girl and I don't see any problems."

My 3 favorite players are: Patty Schnyder ~ Roger Federer ~ Martina Hingis

Other players: Belinda Bencic ~ Kim Clijsters ~ Timea Bacsinszky ~ Elena Dementieva ~ Stefanie Voegele ~ Anna Kournikova ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Vera Zvonareva ~ Daniela Hantuchova ~ Elena Bovina ~ Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova ~ Monica Seles ~ Jennifer Capriati ~ Serena and Venus Williams ~ Klara Koukalova

so a lot of people can shut up now... I knew Elena D would have a good sense... In a team, a strong ally helps, whether you like her or not, you share the same agenda now, and that's enough

Maria will be leading the team as she is the best female Russian tennis player of all time, by a long way.

Since I like you Max, I will let this go. ( and not insist Maria is higher ranked)...

But Lena can act as the leader if she also plays...she deserves it anyway as she is the fed cup veteran.

I really hope Lena and Masha play together. They'll be a tough team for singles. My other two picks would be Dinara and Anna Chakvetadze although I think Kirilenko might get in as she will make it more comfortable for Maria.
