Re: Fed Cup semis RUS vs USA to be played on clay

this was always going to happen. I mean the USA players are not as strong on clay all round as the Russians are.

She's done enough to qualify for the Olympics. Damn her (not so) ulterior motives are so predictable.

Not surprising considering that the semis are played during the time of clay season.

Re: Fed Cup semis RUS vs USA to be played on clay

Seeing as Sharapova probs wont play (and shes not that good on clay neway), i actually think USA will win. I think a hard court would be better

Serena Williams Fabio Fognini Rafael Nadal

Sharapova may still play... That's not yet disclosed.

Sharapova can beat anyone on clay except Henin.

On clay? Against Russia? Not a chance with or without Sharapova. The US with their best line up have a decent shot to beat Russia on any other surface (I'd say a 50/50 prospect) but on clay in Moscow, I really can not see how America have any chance at all.

The US will really need Serena
to be there for the win.

Venus has been trying for the past three
years to carry it all on her shoulders
but she needs help.

Basically, since doubles is always a toss
the US needs another top player to compliment
Venus and actually win a singles match or two.
