Meilen Tu, Jill Craybas and Laura Granville upset with Zina over Fed Cup snubs ...
Call me: Meilen Tu didn't expect to be selected to the U.S. Fed Cup team for its semifinal against Russia next month. She did expect a courtesy call from captain Zina Garrison, however, given that she's the fourth-best American player according to the rankings.
"I'm a little bit disappointed in that I never even met her," the 38th-ranked Tu said after a second-round loss to Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 6-3 at Wimbledon on Thursday.
"Look, I can go up to her and definitely introduce myself, I'll give you that. But I think it's part of her job representing women's tennis, representing the Fed Cup, that she come up and talk to all the American players."
Tu said she believes she should have been given consideration for the fourth spot that went to Vania King. Venus and Serena Williams and doubles specialist Lisa Raymond also are on the squad.
Jill Craybas and Laura Granville — who beat King and Jelena Kostanic Tosic in doubles Thursday — also were upset.
"The big thing is that there's not a lot of communication going on," said Craybas, who's ranked 64th in singles. "A lot of players I talked to are frustrated about it, because there's a lack of contact."
The 77th-ranked Granville, who faces 1997 champion Martina Hingis in singles Friday, said: "I'm not even on the radar screen."
