Re: Big Fed Cup semifinal: USA-Russia, who is going to win
Probably Vera will play, as she needs to play to be eligible for Olympics. Maybe Sharapova too since it's in US. But I think at least one Williams may play also.
Dementieva, Kuznetsova, Petrova, and Vesnina (all regulars) have already played enough, so I think the team will be something like Zvonareva, Kleybanova, Pavlyuchenkova, and Makarova/Dushveina. Maybe Chakvetadze or Sharapova instead and a slight chance of Kuzzie I guess.... Safina won't play I imagine since she's hurt.
Anyways, if Dementieva plays, I bet Russia wins regardless. If she doesn't and one or both Williams play, I think USA. If neither Williams plays, I think Russia regardless. I guess I have to predict Russia atm.
My number one: Victoria Azarenka
ATP: Novak Djoković
