My fed cup 2007 Final report

Hey guys,

So here I am live from Moscow! I am there to support the Italian team. I thought some of you would like a report from here. So here it is!
We arrived yesterday, 5 girls from France to support the Italians. We've been supporting them until the final last year, and followed them everywhere since then. So that's why we are in Russia.

This morning, we were not sure we could, but we wanted to attend the draw. So we arrived early at the stadium, and could enter.
The first girl we saw there was MaSha. Quite cold and impressive physically. Then we could talk to Mara. She is happy and proud to play singles. And so nice with us.
Tomorrow we will be placed just behind the Italian team, first row! That'll be so great!

The draw: quite long and boring, but a few funny details:
_ MaSha was not allowed to sit with the other girls, do she sat next to the Italiam staff. All the photographers were after her. She was really happy, but not sure all the other girls of the team were as happy!
_ The Italian staff was so funny and cheering when each name was pronounced!
_ When the draw for next year for Russia was announced, Kuzy started a prayer saying ' please, please, not in Israel!!!!!!!' and then they go in Israel. So she laughed, looked at MaSha amd told her 'you'll go there, I won't'
_ After the draw, we saw Kuzy with the team and something in her hands, under her arms. We looked closer, and that thing was actually Petrova's head! So funny! They're clowns together!
_ When Spain was drawn for Italy next year, all the girls were so relieved and happy to play home they laughed, yelled of joy, and raised the hands in the air, especially Roby
_ After the ceremony was over, training cession with Flavia and Franci. Quite relaxed. Franci was so focused, and at the same time enkoying the moment, totally unlike last round in Italy.
_ The following training was Petrova, Kuzy and Vesnina but we had to leave...

No pictures or videos for now, but when I'm back home, I have more than one hour taped, and my friends took beautiful pics of both teams. Funny moments on tape...

See you tomorrow!

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: My fed cup 2007 Final report

Good stuff

When the draw for next year for Russia was announced, Kuzy started a prayer saying ' please, please, not in Israel!!!!!!!' and then they go in Israel. So she laughed, looked at MaSha amd told her 'you'll go there, I won't'

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

You mean this:

"Maria: Hmmm...Where should I sit..."

"Maria: Maybe the Italians would welcome me in their team..."

"Nadia(pointing at an empty seat next to Vesnina): You can sit there... Added Vesnina: Yea Maria, the seat next to mine is empty..."

Grazie stefy

I read your fears running to form veils in his eyes, before the big jump, obscuring the minds of future memories
