Elena Dementieva has welcomed the announced that US Open champion Maria Sharapova wants to join Russia’s Fed Cup campaign next season.


“If she plays it's going to be very helpful for the team,” Dementieva said.

“She's a very strong player and we have a lot of chances to win if she's playing.”

Anastasia Myskina has said in the past that she would refuse to play with if Sharapova's father Yuri was present, but Dementieva has dismissed the rumours of unrest in the Russian camp.

“I don't see any problems with her father,” she added.

“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.”

Russia – back to back winners in 2004 and 2005 – have been drawn at home against Spain in the first round to be played in April.

Lena is aware that Sharapova spends 99% of her time in the US, and almost zero time in Russia.

Aware that Sharapova is only making herself Fed Cup eligible to play in the Olympics.
Lena knows that Sharapova celebrates her birthday with US flags, too

But Lena is not going to start trouble this week.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

I hope there is some hazing on the Russian Fed Cup team
If Sharapova actually shows up (and I wouldn't be surprised if she comes up with a mystery illness next April),
maybe Lena, Sveta, and Dinara will tie Sharapova up, and shave her head (like the other egghead Americans, Agassi and Murphy Jensen).

Just a thought

You know, some of these Mashabators are way too sensitive.
Sharapova was born in Russia, with 2 Russian parents.
So was Golovin.
So was Dementieva.

Sharapova, Golvin, Dementieva... Who is the Russian?

Lena already knows Maria's motives, so it's not really a controversy....honestly, everyone does.
