Fed Cup SF: USA v RUS (USTA Considering Vermont,Indy or Hawaii For This Tie :help:)

great SF matchup here ... it is the week after Wimbledon but I hope the top players show up from both sides, including Sharapova making her Fed Cup debut


the ideal situation:

location:New York (Louis Armstrong Stadium, 2nd biggest court at USO), Winston-Salem or somewhere in California

surface: hard outdoors

USA Squad: S Williams, V Williams, V King, L Raymond

RUS Squad: Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Petrova, Dementieva

who would win this tie?

Sharapova isn't playing for Russia.

Fantastic!! I thought it was going to be in Russia again on clay If Venus and Serena play I will be going. It would be nice if they also have redced tickets here.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK

Its such a bad position being right after Wimbledon , it means much less chance that either Venus or Serena will play unless they make an early exit at Wimbly i expect Sharapova won't play either with it being so close to Wimbledon, maybe Dementieva and Kuznetsova for Russia

The Russian team will be strong. I don't know if the US team will be any good.

Nothing is for sure, except that the Russian team will be strong.

Re: Fed Cup SF: USA v RUS (To Be Played In USA In July, Likely On Hard Courts)

It all depends on who plays, i think USA will need both Vee and Serena, just 1 of them would be tough because Russia are likely to have a least 2 of their top players and either King or Jackson would have a real uphill battle in beating any of them

What if they played in on grass? Just an idea. I remember US Davis Cup played Chile on grass last year.

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.

Re: Fed Cup SF: USA v RUS (To Be Played In USA In July, Likely On Hard Courts)

I'd love for the Fed Cup SF between Russia and the USA to be on an indoor carpet surface, perhaps where the Chase Championships were held in New York.

I'd want:
Dementieva v. V. Williams
Dementieva v. S. Williams
Petrova v. V. Williams
Petrova v. S. Williams
Zvonareva/Vesnina v. Raymond/King

Just my dream.

If they could make the match on grass then I would bet the Williams sisters would play!


That would be
