Anyone agree that Italy should now be considered a favorite for this week FC match?
With Vera is now gone from the Russian team and Roberta finding a great form this week, Fran is playing better now and Flavia is playing on her fav surface, should Italy now be considered a favorite for the tie? Sveta is not playing well this year for the most part, same with Anna C and Nadia.
Add to this the fact that all of Iatlian players are in Europe and some of the Russians have been playing in the US this weel (Petrova, Vesnina), so will definitely need time to get over the jet lag.
