Talking Amelie, Mary to lead France against Russia

November 7, 2003

PARIS (AP) -- Mary Pierce will join France's national team for its upcoming clash against Russia in the semifinals of the Fed Cup, the French Tennis Federation said Friday.

Pierce, 28, is to take a spot on the four-woman team formerly held by Nathalie Dechy, who is suffering from wrist pain, according to the federation's Web site.

Captain Guy Forget also selected Amelie Mauresmo, Emilie Loit and Stephanie Cohen-Aloro for the Fed Cup matchup against Russia in Moscow on Nov. 19-20.

The Russian team includes Anastasia Myskina, Elena Dementieva, Nadia Petrova and Vera Zvonareva, according to the Web site of the International Tennis Federation.


Despite reluctance of top American and Belgian players to play, the other semifinal of Fed Cup is shaping up to be very interesting! I am glad Mary is healthy enough to play and think that the winner of this Semi-Final will probably kick US ass in the final

I think the lineup will be:

First Singles: Amelie / Dementieva
Second Singles: Mary / Myskina

Doubles Loit / Cohen-Aloro vs. Petrova / Zvonareva


I predict

Amelie def. Dementieva
Myskina def. Mary
Amelie def. Myskina
Mary def. Dementieva
Petrova Zvonareva def Loit Cohen-Aloro

France wins 3-2
