Who will represent Russia to fight in Beijing Olympic Game?

What a fierce competition within Russia!! Only 3 players could be chosen,I really wonder what is the standard for selecting these players, if there is somthing subtly unfair(it seems unavoidable?), the later Fed Cup team will be a little bit embarrassed,right?

I thought it was 4 players?

I believe Sharapova will definitely occupy one, then Kuznetsova also has a good chance, others are quite unknown.

I think a lot will depend on players form. tarpischev could persuade a higher-ranked player in poor form to make way for someone more up to the challenge
