Re: Fed Cup FINAL: Spain vs Russia in MADRID !

I wonder who will be on the Russian team. Right now, Dinara and Maria makes sense.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Russia has only lost one tie since 2003. That was at Belgium with Justine and Kim playing both days.
But this will be a challenge.

But dont forget that Russia > China
and fact is that 3pts is enough for overall win.
I expect to see Sveta and Dinara like first Tarpishev clay options, and 3-0 leading after three matches (3-2 or 4-1 at end).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

I really think Maria won´t play. I mean, she will be listed, and one week left, she will withdraw. That´s what Maria looks like, unfortunately.

At 21 Maria is already by far best Russian WTA player of all time, but at clay she is just "one of"... This is Olympic year and she is by far best Russian hope for madal in singles - so forced her to play this summer against weak Spain (in comparation with best Russian girls) FED CUP final at clay or doubles in Beijing is not help Russia at all and will only trouble Maria. If Tarpischev will ask of MARIA to go in Madrid it probably bee KIRILENKO which this season prove herself like good claycourt player (but she will be still like #4 option).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

Re: Fed Cup FINAL: Spain vs Russia in MADRID !

I know scheduling and everything, but why pass on an opportunity to win that trophy being active on the team Its a thing kind of everyone would like to have on her résumé So, I think she'll go, but I dont think she'll play more than one match.

Sharapova, Jankovic, Zvonareva !
Kirilenko, Vesnina, Dokic, Bacsinszky, Jovanovski, Pironkova
Official Greek Guardian of the Maria Mafia & Don't Knock the Dok
Official Masseur of the Jelena Clinic
Djokovic, Davydenko, Tipsarevic, Wawrinka, Baghdatis, Gulbis, Troicki, Kyrgios

Re: Fed Cup FINAL: Spain vs Russia in MADRID !

I doubt Maria will play.
My dream Russian Fed Cup Team
Myskina, Sveta, Dinara and Elena D.
But Myskina won't play obviously, so instead of her is Vesnina

dinara clay queen and sveta clay citizen against the spaniards maria should play doubles with chaky or something so she can still be part of the victory, and russia can win with the perfect team.

o so just bring her along for the win, have her do nothing, she would be dead weight. After seeing her Roland Garros performance, I hope Russia doesn't choose her.
If Maria plays, Go Spain, but if Maria doesn't play, Go Russia
