@Sweet Cleopatra, Maria playing in FedCup final this year is almost impossible. Even if we dump out the fact she never had played for Russian team (she always speaks about how she wants to do this, but, as well, she always has an excuse not to do it ) than, Maria should play USopen first, and than FedCup final right after that. If she make it through to the USopen final, she won't have time to go to FedCup final. And if she will be kicked out of US open, than she will say something about 'being badly injured' and than, won't go to FedCup That's it.
But than, it's not a big deal. Russian team had made it through without 'pova, and if they win the final, they'll do it without her as well
