Re: Vesnina to replace Sharapova in Russian Fed Cup team vs Spain

so the team is Petrova, Kuznetsova, Zvonareva and Vesnina!!

where are Chakvetadze, Safina, Poutchkova, Kirilenko, Bardina, Likhovtseva

Anyway Petrova, Kuznetsova and even Zvonareva will do their job in singles

She's playing doubles with Chakvetadze, not Likhovtseva.

OK

sounds good to me! I think he should have called Zvonareva who is a very good doubles player instead of Vesnina.

But I think this is a strategy for the 2008 Olympics

Tarpischev said Zvonareva caught some virus and couldn't play.

So the doubles team for this tie will be Chak/Vesnina and not Petrova/Kuznetsova?

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson

I wouldn't let someone play for my country who lost 0-6 0-6 just weeks before against Shuai Peng.

Which is extremely unlikely considering Russia is fielding its best claycourters and both Medina and Domínguez Lino have been mediocre or downright sucky as of late, even on clay.
